Russian Navy Faced with Major Delays in Submarines and Surface Vessels Deliveries

The leadership of the Russian defense ministry met at an expanded session on December 11, 2015 and Minister Sergei Shoigu said that "two multipurpose submarines and eight warships were delivered to the Navy." However the Russian fleet received only two warships last year. They are small missile ships Zeleny Dol and Serpukhov of project 21631 Buyan-M. Military expert Alexander Mozgovoi believes three new auxiliary vessels were included: oceanographic research Yantar ship of project 22010, armament store carrier Academician Korolev of project 20180TB (20181) and rescue vessel Igor Belousov of project 21130, as well as big dry-cargo ship Yauza which completed seven-year long maintenance and modernization. However, they make six vessels all in all, not eight, the expert said.
