Russia to develop its undersea fleet

Russia needs its undersea fleet and intends to keep it on the alert. Nuclear-powered undersea fleet remains one of its major forces, said Konstantin Pulikovsky, the Russian president's plenipotentiary to the Far Eastern Federal District, while visiting the submarine squadron stationed in Vilyuchinsk, Kamchatka region.

On Monday, Pulikovsky completed a tour of Kamchatka, during which he met with Viktor Gavrikov, Commander of the troops stationed in Northeastern Russia, and Alexander Neshcheret, Commander of the Operations Squadron, to discuss the stationing of the nuclear-powered fleet, combat training of officers and sailors, and social welfare of the families of servicemen, reported the plenipotentiary's press secretary Yevgeny Anoshin.

During the trip, Pulikovsky boarded the nuclear-powered vessel Tomsk, which had been assembled and launched simultaneously with the submarine Kursk. Today, several officers from the second crew of the sunken Kursk serve on the Tomsk.
