The Russian Navy should build up its combat potential in coming years, President Vladimir Putin said on Monday, Eurasia Diary reports citing TASS.

"In the coming years, it is necessary to actively build up the Navy’s combat capabilities. This largely depends on the planned delivery of frigates and submarines upgraded for employing Tsirkon hypersonic missiles to the Navy’s combat structure," the Russian leader said while opening the 14th series of meetings on defense.

 

This task requires achieving coordinated work of the government, the military command, the defense industry and research organizations, the president stressed.

The hypersonic weapons in the Fleet are becoming extremely important to maintain strategic stability, Putin noted.

The Russian leader also stressed the need to continue the deliveries of destroyers and universal amphibious assault ships to the Navy.

"I request you to report in detail today about how the work on ships of new projects and their armament is proceeding," Putin said, addressing the meeting’s participants.
