MOSCOW, June 29 (Itar-Tass) — Russia will put into service the missile-carrying submarine Yuri Dolgoruky and the intercontinental ballistic missile Bulava simultaneously and soon, but not before Navy Day on July 29, Chief of the Russian General Staff General Nikolai Makarov told reporters on Friday.

“We have the plans to put the missile-carrying submarine Yuri Dolgoruky on combat duty, but this will not take place before Navy Day on July 29. The holiday will pass, then it will be clear, when the warship will be put into service of the Navy,” Makarov said. Meanwhile, he pledged, “In any case this will happen soon after the state trial tests of the warship.”

So, the chief of the Russian General Staff rejected Vice-Admiral of the Russian Navy Viktor Chirkov’s statement made in St. Petersburg last Monday that “The Yuri Dolgoruky will be put into service of the Navy before Navy Day on July 29.”

The chief of the Russian General Staff also confirmed that the Project 955 first serial nuclear-powered submarine Alexander Nevsky will come into service of the Navy this year.

“After she passes successfully the state trials and makes one test-launch of Bulava, she will be put into service of the Russian Navy,” Makarov explained.
