The Russian Ministry of Defense will receive its first serially-produced Project 22350 frigate Admiral Kasatonov by mid-June.

 

"Considering the pace of state trials, the ship’s delivery to the Defense Ministry may take place in late May or early June," Severnaya Shipyard said in a statement Wednesday.
