Russian term or phrase: kursk
Name of russian submarine
ruth
English translation:Kursk
Explanation:
THis is a proper name and proper names are NEVER translated. Besides, the submarine was named after a Russian city so it cannot be translated at all. Compare with the names of American submarins and ships often named after generals.
