ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's comments regarding the belief that the U.S. raised the Soviet submarine K-129. In late 1974, the Soviets revealed their knowledge of an attempt by the U.S. intelligence community to raise the K-129, which had sunk in the mid-Pacific at midnight on March 11-12, l968. The author states that despite intensive research by Soviets in spring 1968, regime was not aware of where or why the K-129 had been lost.
