Putin getting ready for war? Russia ready to hand new patrol ship to military in 2020

The 8,500-ton Arctic multirole ship, the ‘Ivan Papanin’, is being built by the Admiralty Shipyard in St Petersburg.

The Admiralty Shipyard is a leading Russian producer of icebreakers for civilian and military use.

Shipyard chief, Aleksandr Buzakov, also said that a second ship will be laid down in 2019 and would be ready for service in 2022.

He added that the shipyard expects the Russian Defence Ministry to contract more ships of this class, once the two pilot boats prove their performance.

Mr Buzakov said: “We happen to have been specialising in building civilian ice-rated ships for the last 25 years.”

The move signals the Russian Navy’s commitment to project a presence in the Arctic region.

The Admiralty Shipyard is also constructing two advanced diesel-electric attack submarines. The class lead, the ‘St Petersburg’, was commissioned 2010, but only as a “test service.”

Its construction was underfunded and it was not fully constructed at the time.

The two additional submarines currently under construction faced numerous delays as necessary alterations to design were suggested based on the ‘St Petersburg’ operation, according to Mr Buzakov.

Earlier this week, Russia also waded into the North Korea crisis as tensions between Kim Jong-un’s regime and the US continue to soar.

Vassily Nebenzia, Russia’s ambassador to the UN, urged Donald Trump’s administration to avoid provoking power-crazed despot Kim.

Speaking at the UN headquarters in New York, Mr Nebenzia said: “A military solution is not an option anyway.

“Our strong wish is that the United States keeps calm and refrains from any moves that would provoke another party to actions that might be dangerous.

“Russia is ready to do whatever we can to promote dialogue, and through our embassy we are in contact with North Korean authorities.”
