Argentina took through Russia in search of a military submarine that went missing in the South Atlantic ocean a week ago.
President Mauricio Macri said that Russian leader Vladimir Putin called to offer him to deploy exploratory vessel and crew with the experience of similar operations.
In search involved more than a dozen countries, including the United States. Submarine San Juan, disappeared after reports of the electric breakdown. The last time the crew interacted with the naval officers on land last Wednesday.
The representative of the Navy, captain Enrique Balbi, said that the search has now entered a “critical phase” amid fears that the oxygen level may fall.
He later told Argentine reporters that the Navy studied the reports of a loud noise, discovered in the area a few hours after the submarine disappeared.
He described this as a “sonar anomaly” and refused to confirm whether an explosion.
As you know, communication with the submarine, built at the shipyards in Germany, went missing on November 15 in the Atlantic ocean during its transition from the naval base of Ushuaia in the South to home in Mar del Plata, 400 km South from Buenos Aires.
On Board the boat were 44 people. Involved in the rescue mission 10 Argentine military ships, the polar ship from the UK, as well as three American aircraft.
