MOSCOW, December 12. /TASS/. The second Project 22350 frigate, the Admiral Kasatonov, was set afloat at the Northern Wharf in Russia’s northern capital of St. Petersburg in the presence of Russia’s Navy Chief Commander Admiral Viktor Chirkov.

“We set afloat a second Project 22350 warship designed for remote sea areas to ensure Russian national interests in any part of oceans in the world. This warship has embodied all thoughts and ideas of our designers and requirements of our fleet,” Chirkov said.

He recalled that Admiral Gorshkov, the first warship of the project, is already at sea trials.

“I hope that the Northern Fleet will accept these warships with a great pleasure and responsibility, because they will be first who will operate first-rank warships destined for far sea areas,” the chief commander added.
