Russia - Prime Minister Vladimir Putin inspects diesel electric submarine construction shops at the Admiralty Shipyards in St Petersburg

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin visited the Admiralty Shipyards’ workshop building diesel-and-electric-powered submarines in St. Petersburg on Friday.

Shipyards Director General Vladimir Alexandrov informed Putin about progress in the construction of a submarine of Project 677. “Submarines of the same project have been built, and the first of them is at seas,” he said.



Diesel-and-electric-powered submarines of the new generation are more maneuverable, Alexandrov said. “Such submarines submerge to the depth of 300 meters,” he said.

 He called for enlarging financing of the submarine project and establishing the precise number of submarines the Russian Black Sea Fleet may need with due account of prospective basing problems. (Original News)
