The Russian Navy has accepted its newest Admiral Gorshkov class of Project 22350 frigate, Admiral Kasatonov.

According to the Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation, the ship’s receiving ceremony and the St Andrew’s flag raising was held on the Neva roadstead.

Frigate Admiral Kasatonov is scheduled to participate in the Main Naval Parade.

Russian Navy commander-in-chief admiral Nikolay Evmenov said: “The frigate Admiral Kasatonov, which successfully completed the state tests, was accepted into the navy on the Neva roadstead, on the traverse of the Senate Square.

“The navy has been replenished with another ship that can effectively solve the tasks set in the far sea and ocean zones.”

The new frigates feature stealth capabilities and carry high-precision weapons. They are being built by Severnaya Verf (United Shipbuilding Corporation).

With a displacement capacity of 5,000t, the 135m-long and 16m-wide vessels can cruise at speeds of about 30k. The ships can accommodate around 200 people.

The first frigate, Admiral Sergei Gorshkov, joined service in November 2013.

The third and the fourth ships, Admiral Golovko and Admiral Isakov, are anticipated to join the navy within the next two years.

In May this year, the Russian Navy accepted delivery of the strategic ballistic missile carrier submarine Knyaz Vladimir from the Sevmash shipyard.

Laid down at Sevmash in 2012, the vessel delivered is the improved Borei-A class project of the fourth-generation nuclear submarines.
