On July 4, 1961 a nuclear accident occurred on the Soviet submarine K-19 in the Norwegian Sea. Her crew prevented a nuclear reactor meltdown and saved the world from global nuclear disaster at the expense of their lives and health. This accident became widely known due to Peter Huchthausen’s story, “K-19: The Widowmaker”, and Kathryn Bigelow’s movie of the same name.


 On the year of the 45th anniversary of the accident and the 100th anniversary of Russia's submarine force the Ex-president of the Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbachev, submitted a request to the Nobel Committee for nomination of the first  crew of the K-19 for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2006 for their sacrifices for the sake of  the World .


We of The Saint-Petersburg Submariners’ Club second this initiative and  go out with an appeal to all submariners' organizations worldwide to join in these efforts for the nomination of the first crew of the K-19 for the Nobel Prize. Now we collect letters of support from submariners and public organization to refer them to the Nobel Committee. We hope that the brotherhood of submariners worldwide will show will show its solidarity in full measure on this initiative.
