Okhotsk Sea rescue likely to be over today

Russian icebreakers, the Admiral Makarov and the Krasin towing the Commonwealth mother ship out of the ice trap in the Okhotsk Sea have made their way through another ten miles of thick ice and are moving to clear waters.

Russian icebreakers, the Admiral Makarov and the Krasin towing the Commonwealth mother ship out of the ice trap in the Okhotsk Sea have made their way through another ten miles of thick ice and are moving to clear waters.

The Commonwealth mother ship as well as several other vessels sent a distress signal on the 31st of December, 2010.

Now that a month has passed since then, all vessels have been rescued, except the mother ship.

But experts say chances are high to complete the rescue operation today.
