Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy, Admiral Viktor Chirkov is expected to attend the ceremony.
A total of six Varshavyanka class submarines will be built for the Black Sea Fleet. According to the Navy commander, the submarines “will fulfil jointly with the naval surface forces and antisubmarine aircraft complex tasks in their responsibility zone.” They will also strengthen the combat capability of Russia’s naval task force in the Mediterranean.
The Stary Oskol submarine was laid down in August 2012, and the fourth submarine of the project - Krasnodar - in February 2014.
The laying down of the fifth and sixth submarines of the class is planned in late October this year, for the 310th anniversary of Admiralty Wharves. The submarines will be named Veliky Novgorod and Kolpino.
The submarines, armed with torpedoes, mines and cruise missiles, displace 3,100 tonnes, reach speeds of 20 knots, can dive to 300 metres and carry crews of 52 people.
