OMSK, June 3./TASS/. Russia cannot complete the construction of some naval ships as Ukraine has suspended supplies of gas-turbine engines, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on Wednesday.
"We cannot finish the construction of surface ships for the Russian Navy as supplies [of gas-turbine engines] have been stopped," Rogozin said in the Siberian city of Omsk.
He said within the import substitution plan, Russia plans to launch the production on 186 items that were earlier produced in Ukraine, first of all gas-turbine engines.
"We are planning to complete this [import substitution] work before 2018," the top official noted.
Admiral Grigorovich class frigates (Project 11356) and Admiral Gorshkov class frigates (Project 22350) use Ukrainian gas-turbine engines, in particular.
Ukraine in May terminated a treaty on military cooperation with Russia.
An explanatory note said the bill was aimed at "protecting Ukraine’s national interests, independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity."
The authors of the document claim that the Russian side "has unilaterally violated norms and principles of the international law and carried out armed aggression against Ukraine."
