The Project 11356 lead frigate Admiral Grigorovich has joined the Russian Navy. The St. Andrew’s flag has been hoisted on the vessel, a TASS correspondent reports from the scene. "This day is, indeed, an important event for the Black Sea Fleet. We are receiving a frigate that can operate in distant waters. This is the first vessel built at the Russian rather than Soviet wharves," Black Sea Fleet Commander Alexander Vitko said.
