DmitriyDonskoy1880-1905

The discovery of the wreck of Russian Navy vessel Dmitrii Donskoi off the coast of Korea has prompted speculation of a potential $100 billion dollar treasure trove.

The Imperial Russian Navy ship was sunk by its crew in 1905 after being intercepted by the Japanese fleet following the battle of Tsushima in which the Russian fleet was decimated. It is rumoured the vessel was carrying the Russian fleet’s treasury in gold bullion, today worth billions of dollars.

The salvage company that found the ship said it was severely damaged at the stern but the sides and deck were well preserved despite being over 380m below the surface. The wreck lies 2km off the island of Ulleungdo.
