SOCHI, November 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin called to synchronize the construction of submarines of the Russian Navy with their arming with weaponry. Putin has made a statement at a meeting devoted to the development of the Russian Navy, “The weapons should be delivered synchronous with the commissioning of submarines carrying these weapons,” the president noted.
The president also noted that the deadlines of building new submarines as well as the prices on them should be observed. He also noted the importance of development of the coastal infrastructure. “Our Armed Forces, including strategic nuclear deterrence forces should be well-balanced, therefore, we will give proper attention to the Navy in general, its strategic part, in particular,” Putin noted.
The president recalled that the new strategic missile carrier Yuri Dolgoruky was put into service of the Navy in 2013. Two more submarines Aleksander Nevsky and Vladimir Monomakh should come into service of the fleet soon in the next year. “By 2020 up to eight nuclear-powered underwater cruisers should be brought into service of our Navy,” the president recalled to the participants in the meeting.
