The headquarters of the Russian Navy will not be transferred from Moscow to St. Petersburg, a high-ranking Defense Ministry official told RIA Novosti on Friday.

The headquarters of the Russian Navy will not be transferred from Moscow to St. Petersburg, a high-ranking Defense Ministry official told RIA Novosti on Friday.

In 2007, the speaker of the lower house of parliament, Boris Gryzlov, proposed transferring the Navy headquarters from Moscow to St. Petersburg.

Several Russian army commanders were against the idea, saying it would be too costly and ineffective.

"The Navy headquarters will remain in Moscow," the official said.

He added however that the headquarters would move from their current location to another within the capital.
