MOSCOW, October 21. /TASS/. Russia’s Black Sea Fleet will get its fifth and sixth submarine of project 636.3 (Varshavyanka) - The Veliki Novgorod and The Kolpino - on October 25 and November 25 respectively, the CEO of the Admiralty Shipyards, Aleksandr Buzakov, said on Friday.
"Government certification tests of the fifth sub in the family - The Veliki Novgorod - have ended successfully. The sub will be handed over to the Black Sea fleet on October 25. The sixth submarine - The Kolpino - is due to be delivered on November 25," Buzakov said.
