KAMCHATKA, September 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu expressed his displeasure on Tuesday over the construction of the docking and maintenance facilities at a naval base in the country's Far East intended for the deployment of Russia’s Borei-class strategic nuclear-powered missile submarines.

While inspecting the construction of the Pacific Fleet’s facility on the Kamchatka Peninsula in the Avacha Bay on Tuesday, Shoigu expressed his dissatisfaction with the work of the local supervising bodies overseeing the quality of construction works.

“This is a very serious matter to joke about [the construction dates],” Shoigu said. “There are no more jokes.”

Chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, Army General Valery Gerasimov reported to Shoigu that two Project 955 Borei-class fourth-generation nuclear submarines are scheduled to be deployed at the base, located in the village of Rybachy in the Avacha Bay, in 2015.

“Everything must be ready by that time,” Shoigu said adding that the quality of the construction works must be increased.

The defense minister ordered General Gerasimov and Commander of the Eastern Military District, Col.-Gen. Sergey Surovkin to take the construction work of the Pacific Fleet’s facility under tight control  and deliver weekly reports on it.
