The second vessel of the project, the Admiral Essen, is being constructed at the Yantar shipyard in Kaliningrad. Trukhachyov reminded that a total of six ships of that class are going to be built for the Black Sea Fleet in the coming years.

Besides, the fleet is expected to receive two small-size missile ships, the Zelyoniy Dol and the Serpukhov, whose construction is being finalized at the Tatarstan-based Zelenodolsky shipyard.
Two new Project 636.3 diesel-electric submarines (Kilo-class), the Novorossiysk and the Rostov-on-Don, are also expected to be commissioned by the fleet. Also, in 2015 the Black Sea Fleet sailors should be introduced to a modern tug boat “Professor Nikolay Muru” (project 22870).

The Fleet received more than ten motor vessels and auxiliary ships over the past year and a half, among them anti-sabotage motor boats, speed patrol boats, diving boats and tugs.
