Update of the combat ships under construction by the begin of 2018 (ordered before the begin of the rule of the State Armament Program 2018-2025).
The following list includes all the combat ships under production, no matter the timeline. Some of the ships maybe for export, but the buyer is not clear still. The list includes not reparations. The list includes not auxiliary ships for the Russian Navy, and between them, includes not low armed patrol ships.

102 - Ships under construction (13 more not-completed) Some maybe to export.
The first unit of the Project 23560 Lider Crusier
/Destroyer seems to be under construction. Named: Orlov-Chesmenskiy
To note that to have the first unit of the Project 23560 under construction at this point, means that this is a ship under construction under the State Armament Program 2011-2020. Likely thanks to the Mistral funds.
As commented before, Russia is becoming ready to afford the high number of decommissions that should come after 2024 and more intensely after 2030. Until then the rythm of commissions and decommissions of combat ships is being low, as expected, as planned.
I do not expect cancellations. It means economic loses. Even the ships with longer timeline under construction should be completed for the Russian Navy or to export, in order to avoid loses.
Now, the minimum number of orders of new ships necessary for Russia to reach a capability of building every type of combat ship by the end of 2025, would be 1 unit of the Project 23000 Aircraft Carrier. In my opinion this is an important goal for Russia and will be assured. If the first unit of the Project 23000 begins also under the State Armament Program 2011-2020 it would not be necessary orders of big ships under the State Armament Program 2018-2025.
