At the final stage is the process of adopting a strategic submarine of the Russian Navy Project 955 (Class "Northwind") "Yuri Dolgoruky". Continuing series of tests followed by a ship "Alexander Nevsky". The main armament of these submarines will be the new missile "Bulava".

The construction of the nuclear-powered cruiser "Vladimir Monomakh" and "Prince Vladimir".
"As part of a group of strategic nuclear deterrent forces completed the construction of the head of the atomic submarine with cruise missiles" Severodvinsk ", - told the commander of the Navy. - And continues to build the brain of upgraded nuclear submarine with cruise missiles," Kazan ".
Also, according to him, work began on designing and building two amphibious assault ships (UDC) of "Mistral" - "Vladivostok" and "Sevastopol."
According to the Navy Commander, until the end of 2020 on the Black Sea Fleet will arrive six diesel-electric submarines (SSK). "We expect that with the 2014 diesel-powered submarines will start to arrive on the Black Sea fleet, and go up to 2020 all six submarines," - he said.
According to the commander in chief, there is a whole program of DES groups. "It built a modern submarine" Saint Petersburg ", now there is a transfer to the Northern Fleet - said Chirkov. - At the White Sea, this class submarine of Project 677" Lada "hold fire testing and deep."
"Two more submarines of the same project are based on the" Admiralty Shipyards "in St. Petersburg and will be transferred to the Northern Fleet," - said Commander of the Navy.
As previously reported, it is expected that the BSF will receive six submarines of Project 636 to the end of 2016 up to 2014 the Black Sea will be three such submarines in 2015 another, and in 2016 - two more.
As the commander in chief, the Russian Navy plans to build a new aircraft carrier. "Design offices have the task of designing a new aircraft carrier - he said. - In this work the money already allocated."
At present, the Russian Navy is only one heavy aircraft-carrying cruiser "Admiral Kuznetsov", which stands in service of the Northern Fleet. According to the commander, the ship performed and will perform its task.

As reported in November last year, Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov, the state armaments program up to 2020 funding for the construction of aircraft carriers is not provided. "We believe that is not very aware of his appearance and his technical ability," - then he said. "We ordered a preliminary design - Serdyukov said. - Now the shipbuilders must show it. If we are satisfied, if the carrier itself and its accompanying ships will have such a potential, which we do not have, and other ships can not be done, then the variant of its construction ".
"But this project is very complex - admitted Serdyukov. - We have until the end of 2012 should get a preliminary design, and only then we can talk." "While the money to build an aircraft carrier in the LG 2020 is not" - said Minister of Defence.
Russian Navy plans to build a new destroyer, said Viktor Chirkov.
"We are developing a new project today, a destroyer with a displacement of 14 tons, - he said. - This work is being done, and soon you will learn more about it."

"Work is such ends conduct design work to ensure that we installed on the ship a new strike weapons and means of defense - he explained. - This will be done within five years."
Chirkov also reported that there were plans to build a promising multifunctional corvettes. "The long-term corvette to be versatile vehicle, able to perform the tasks of finding submarines and destroy them, to search for mines and the objectives of water region", - he explained.
The ship will be built in such a way that it "was the helicopter, and you could sit on the deck of his drones." "It will solve the problem of multi-functional."
As noted V.Chirkov, Russia plans to continue to keep the item logistics (ITO) in the Syrian port of Tartus. "Item to be retained, because it is convenient for Russia and the government will spend less if you have one on logistics ships," - he explained.

Commander of the Navy also said that the two types of UDC "Mistral" will be based in Vladivostok. This port has been selected to meet the requirements of this ships. "In Vladivostok, the pier will be built and the system software" - he explained. - There are also shipyards, who will service the ships. "
Chirkov said that at present under construction in France, two types of UDC "Mistral" ("Beijing" and "Sevastopol"). It is assumed that these ships will be able to take the helicopters of "Kamov" with a coaxial arrangement of the rotors. The first ship of the type "Mistral" must be made of the Russian Navy in 2014, the second in late 2015 The building of the third and fourth UDC type "Mistral" Russia will carry out on their own.
The long-term system-based Navy ships will also be created on the Black Sea Fleet in Novorossiisk. In addition, according to the commander of the Navy, work is underway to update the system based in the Kaliningrad region and the Caspian region.
Translation Staff of the Baltic Fleet (BF) from Kaliningrad to St. Petersburg would be inappropriate, said Viktor Chirkov, denying rumors of a possible redeployment of staff.
