This ship "Bratstvo" is Leninsky Komsomol class of cargo ships. You can read the article "Leninsky Komsomol class of cargo ships" in English Wikipedia (I wrote the article). The ship was damaged by soviet submarine and scrapped. I can write the article about this ship but it is better if the ship's photo will posted in Wikipedia. Do you remember the movie "Down Periscope" - the soviet submarines realy tried to pass Gibraltar starit under soviet cargo ships to be unvisible.
