According to him, the concluded contract fully fits into this context.

According to Greek specialists, the two Zubr landing ships which were earlier supplied by Russia to the Greek Navy have made a good showing in the national defence structure of Greece.

The Zubr high-speed air-cushion landing ships can transport 500 people with full arms and are designed to land combat elements both onto a prepared and a non-prepared coast. These ships have powerful up-to-date arms and a mine-laying system.
