Russian Navy Shows Off Ships For Day of Submariner

The Russian Navy has shared a video of a new Borey-style nuclear ballistic missile submarine for the Day of the Russian Submariner, celebrated in Russia on March 19.

Vladimir Korolev, commander-in-chief of the Russian Navy, congratulated submariners on their professional holiday, adding that Russia's submarine program is being actively developed, the Izvestia news website reported.

Navy leadership is considering increasing the number of Borey-class nuclear missile carriers from eight to 10, the RIA Novosti news agency reported.
