SEVASTOPOL, May 12 (Itar-Tass) - The High Command of the Russian Navy attaches great importance to development of the Black Sea Fleet as the guarantor of security of the Russian Federation at its southern maritime borders, and promises new ships. The Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy Admiral Viktor Chirkov said this on Sunday. He participated in the celebrations of the 230th anniversary of the Russian Black Sea Fleet.
"We attach great importance to the development of the Black Sea Fleet. We have a shipbuilding programme, which includes construction of the new patrol ships and submarines for the Black Sea Fleet," he said.
"Next year, probably closer to its end, the Black Sea Fleet will start receiving first ships. Those will be the newest ships," Chirkov said.
"Russia has everything to have its Black Sea Fleet strong, powerful and able to defend its national interests in the Black Sea, the Mediterranean Sea and in other parts of the world ocean," the admiral said.
