Moscow, Jun 27 (Prensa Latina) The Russian Navy is receiving more and more warships, and this year there are plans to provide more than 40 vessels, President Vladimir Putin said at a meeting on shipbuilding.

According to the president, in 2022 the Navy received 24 new ships, and in 2023 it acquired 33, therefore a sustained increase can be seen in that direction.

“A lot has been done in this direction: our fleet is being replenished with new ships equipped with modern weapons, repairs, and deep modernizations are being carried out,” the president emphasized.
