The “Zvezda” shipyard located in Primorye will be provided with orders as long as the Russian Pacific Navy exists, said Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov.
“As long as the Russian Navy exists in the Pacific, the shipyard will be provided with orders. Because this is our main platform for shipbuilding, ship repair, in particular, submarines,” – Borisov told reporters.
