Russia's Navy To Buy 40 New Vessels

With the aim of modernizing and overhauling its fleet, the Russian Navy plans to acquire 40 new vessels in 2014.
The procured vessels will include a Borey-class nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine, a Varshavyanka diesel-electric submarine and the search-and-rescue ship Igor Belousov.
The admiral, who is responsible for the Navy’s arms procurements, said that at least two diesel-electric submarines are to be added to the Black Sea fleet.
Presence in the Arctic is one of Russia’s top defense priorities for the future.
