MOSCOW, August 3. /TASS/. Russia’s United Ship-building Corporation (USC) is doing its best to fulfil its liabilities under the state defense order, USC President Alexey Rakhmanov told TASS on Monday.
"We are aware of all potential risks related to the 2015 state defense order projects that have been outlined by the defense minister. But not only the United Ship-building Corporation and its companies are facing these risks. As for us, we are sparing no effort to fulfil our liabilities," he pledged, commenting on today’s pronouncements of Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu that deadlines for the construction and repairs of warships for the Russian Navy were likely to be broken.
"A total of 17 warships and boats and 52 auxiliary vessels are to be handed over to Russia’s Navy by the end of 2015, including 12 ships and vessels provided by the United Shipbuilding Corporation. Whereas we have no doubts about others for now, but there are grounds to assume that USC will not complete construction and repair works by the deadline," Shoigu said.
Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin earlier said that construction of several ships for Russia’s Navy had been halted because of lack of Ukrainian-produced parts.
