MOSCOW, September 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Navy ships will be equipped with Russian-made gas turbine engines instead of Ukrainian ones starting from early 2017, President of Russia’s United Ship-building Corporation Alexei Rakhmanov said on Wednesday.

“We hope that at the beginning of 2017 first turbines, to be more precise, first prototypes will be through bench tests in Rybinsk and we will be able to begin mounting them on ships we are building for the Russian Navy,” he said.

“Before 2017, we will have to either try to get what we have already paid for or will have to change the configuration of the ships these engines were meant for,” he noted.
