"The Komsomolsk-on-Amur administration has signed an agreement with the Russian Pacific Fleet’s command to take the submarine’s crew under its patronage. The submarine has the same name as the city," the press office said.

"The submarine is expected to be stationed in Kamchatka [in the Russian Far East] after passing dock and running trials," the press office added.

According to the press office, the submarine was smoothly put afloat in accordance with the regulation. The ceremony was held on April 29 in Bolshoi Kamen in Russia’s Far East. Before floating out the submarine, the Amur Shipyard numerously tested and checked the submarine’s hull, its compartments and systems.
