MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia's Black Sea fleet submarine Novorossiysk has arrived at its permanent location at the Novorossiysk Naval Base in the south of the country, Russian Navy spokesman Capt. 1st Rank Igor Dygalo said Monday.
The Novorossiysk is a Varshavyanka-class submarine, the first new Russian Black Sea Fleet submarine in post-Soviet history.
During its stay in the Russian fleet since last year, the submarine successfully underwent maximum depth submersion and military and technical capacity verification procedure trials.
Last week, it was announced that the Novorossiysk was involved in a four-day military exercise in the Black Sea.
