“Kasatonov heard a report by Chief of the Navy’s rescuer and diver training center Captain 1st Rank Vladimir Zhuk on the construction of the new facility. He checked the construction work, examined pier facilities currently being built, as well as logistics support, training, and social infrastructure facilities,” the press office said.

A barrack for 380 servicemen and some other infrastructural facilities will be built on the premises of the rescuer and diver training center by the end of the second quarter of 2021.

According to the schedule, the construction work will be completed in the third quarter of 2021, which will allow servicemen of the training center to start full-fledged training in a new training year.

“The new training center will bring diver training and conversion to a completely new quality level. It will allow training highly-experienced specialists for the Northern, Pacific, Black Sea, Baltic Fleets and the Caspian Flotilla all year round,” Navy Commander-in-Chief Admiral Nikolai Yevmenov said.
