The Borei-class (NATO reporting name Dolgorukiy class) nuclear-powered submarines are capable of penetrating any missile defense system owing to its advanced weaponry, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said Sunday.

Borei Class Subs Become Part of Russian Navy's Permanent Readiness Force
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Borei submarines are equipped with the Bulava (NATO SS-N-30) submarine-launched ballistic missiles.

"These missiles provide an adequate response to any missile defense system, wherever it is. Regardless of which ocean, [they] would try to lock us, 'Borei' will break through this defense," Rogozin told the Russian Channel One in an interview dedicated to the Russian Navy Day.

By 2020, the Russian Navy plans to operate a total of eight submarines of this type. The Borei-class nuclear-powered subs are to become the mainstay of the naval component of the country’s strategic nuclear deterrent.

Moreover, according to Rogozin, foreign-made components are not used in manufacturing of the Russian strategic submarines.

"We do not use foreign components in the strategic nuclear forces," Rogozin told the Russian Channel One in an interview dedicated to the Russian Navy Day.

Over 2,000 Russian enterprises are engaged in cooperation for the building of the ballistic missile submarines, he added.
