“The last Borey-class submarines, the seventh and eighth, will be laid down by the end of the year. The defense ministry has provided financing in accordance with the contract. There is no sequestration,” Igor Vilnit told RIA Novosti.
A total of eight Borey-class submarines are planned to join the Russian Navy by 2020 to be the backbone of Russia's marine nuclear forces. The first three have been launched, and another three are currently under construction.
