Vladimir Putin took part in ceremony to lay down Russia’s fourth Borei-class strategic sub. The president said that by 2020 the country should have eight ballistic missile submarines of this class. The ceremony for the boat, named Knyaz Vladimir, was held at Sevmash, Russia’s largest shipyard located in the port city of Severodvinsk on the White Sea. Sevmash is Russia's sole nuclear submarine maker. So far it has delivered 128 nuclear subs. Currently it is building Vladimir Monomakh and Kazan warships and preparing to commission the lead ship of a new generation of submarines, Yury Dolgoruky.
Putin ordered that more new-generation warships are built for Russia’s “new-look Navy”.
The Borei class submarines will be armed with the Bulava ballistic missile, which is currently in the final stage of development.
