"The ship will soon complete its builders sea trials. When the state trials are completed, St. Andrew’s flag will be hoisted," Navy Deputy Commander-in-Chief for Armament Vice-Admiral Viktor Bursuk said.

"After the ship accomplishes assigned missions, it will join the permanent readiness forces. Ships of the type have proved their effectiveness and high reliability in terms of their operational characteristics," Bursuk added.

The Project 21631 corvette is a multirole combat ship armed with advanced artillery, rocket, missile, anti-commando, antiaircraft and radio technical weapons. It is designed to guard the country’s economic zone and operate both independently and within formations in various parts of the ocean. Traditionally, Project 21631 ships are given names of ancient Russian towns.
