ST. PETERSBURG, August 22. /ITAR-TASS/. Chief expert of marine equipment production enterprise declared Friday that the construction of Varshavyanka-class diesel-powered electric submarines for the Russian Black Sea Fleet does not depend on supplies of spare parts from Ukraine.

Igor Molchanov, Chief of the Rubin Marine Equipment Design Bureau, told ITAR-TASS Friday that they had “always avoided using equipment produced by partners from former Soviet republics even though (they had) friendly relations with them.”

“There are few such parts employed in the Varshavyanka submarine construction; they might be counted on the fingers," Molchanov said.

"A contract on the construction of six submarines for the Black Sea Fleet had been signed before the Ukrainian coup and international developments that followed. Besides, the contract envisaged supplies for the whole Vasrshavyanka batch production, and marine equipment producers had received the necessary parts long before sanctions were imposed," Molchanov said.

"Practically no Ukrainian parts are used in Lada-class submarines which have been built on the basis of import substituting technologies," Molchanov added.
