comment Did the U.S. and Soviet Union have a submarine battle in 1968?
@TylerDurden: It might be an attempt to shift the blame, but it doesn't have to be. The interview is from 2008, most political motivations expired by then. Also, feel free to read my answer - nobody ever claimed that the Scorpion collided with K-129 (the Scorpion sunk two months after the K-129 accident and not even in the same ocean). Instead, the suspect is USS Swordfish which came to Yokosuka for emergency repairs only a few days later. As to choice of ports - I don't know that, the distance to Pearl Harbor and Yokosuka appears to be very similar, but there might be other reasons.

comment Did the U.S. and Soviet Union have a submarine battle in 1968?
Yes, I don't know much about submarines. That's why I searched for official sources, particularly ones that English-speakers won't be able to find. And I'm not stating my opinion there but rather quoting these sources. Viktor A. Dygalo is convinced that there was a collision, stating that US submarines were often spying at the Soviet ones and occasionally at a very close distance. He also says that 20 similar collisions between 1967 and 1993 are known. You don't have to agree with that but so far I have little reason to trust your expertise over his.
