"At present the crew of the cruiser under the command of Captain 1st rank Sergei Alantyev together with Zvezdochka experts and representatives of contractors are carrying out a program of seagoing tests in the White Sea. After a thorough check of all systems and mechanisms in real sea conditions the upgraded cruiser will be handed over to the Northern fleet," Serga said.

The Zvezdochka Shipyard began to restore technical readiness and upgrade the Marshal Ustinov missile cruiser in 2011. "During the time a program of dry dock works was completed, main engines and accompanying systems as well as general onboard systems repaired, mainline cables checked and faulty sections replaced. The main radio-electronic warfare complex of the cruiser was upgraded," the spokesman said.
