MOSCOW, March 2. /TASS/. The Russian Navy will receive two Borei-class strategic nuclear submarines, the Vladimir Monomakh and the Alexander Nevsky, this year, Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said on Monday.
"This year, we shall give to the Navy two nuclear-powered missile submarines Vladimir Monomakh and Alexander Nevsky and two multi-purpose submarines and five surface warships," he said.
Shoigu said the Navy received the first Yuri Dolgoruky of the Borei-class in 2014. Along with it the Navy received the Severodvinsk multi-purpose submarine, the Novorossiisk non-nuclear submarine, five surface warships and ten combat boats.
Two more Borei-class submarines are being made now under the modified 955A project. They will be called Knyaz Vladimir and Knyaz Oleg ('knyaz' is prince in Russian).
