Pipeline survey ship finds Soviet sub wreck in Finnish zoneGerman-Russian undersea gas pipeline joint venture Nord Stream said in a statement on Wednesday that a seabed survey ship owned by Norway's DOF Subsea had discovered a submarine wreck with Soviet markings, adding the vessel was presumed to have sunk during the second world war.

The wreck was found in Finland's exclusive economic zone in the Gulf of Finland.

Nord Stream said it had notified the authorities, including the Finnish Defence Forces.

Markku Melkko, a former head of the Finnish Military Museum, said he was not surprised by the discovery as the Baltic Sea was littered with dozens of submarine wrecks.
