On September 4, 1974 the bodies of 6 Soviet sailors were recovered by the US Navy while clandestinely surveying
the wreckage of submarine K-129
. In 1992 CIA director Robert Gates "...as a gesture of intent, a symbol of a new era... carried with [him, on a state visit with Boris Yeltsin] the Soviet naval flag that had shrouded the coffins... [and] a videotape of their burial at sea, complete with prayers for the dead and the Soviet national anthem—-a dignified and respectful service even at the height of the Cold War."
Where/how can I watch this videotape?
