Russian defense ministry is about to purchase 100 warships till 2020, reports RIA Novosti referring to deputy defense minister Vladimir Popovkin. According to him, procurement of ships will be carried out under State Arms Program 2011-2020 and will imply 20 submarines, 35 corvettes, and 15 frigates. Popovkin did not specify what kind of other 30 ships the Navy intends to buy.

State Arms Program 2011-2020 has not been approved yet; its parameters are still uncertain. As was previously reported, defense ministry would receive RUR 19 trillions under this program. According to Russian Navy Main HQ, part of these funds will be appropriated for renovation of Black Sea Fleet (BSF). The fleet would get 18 new surface ships and submarines within the nearest ten years, including Project 636 Varshavyanka diesel submarines, Project 11356 and Project 22350 frigates, and Project 11711 large landing ships.

It was also officially declared about plans to lay down Project 21631 small-size missile ship, and Project 20380 corvette. It should be kept in mind that the state arms program also provides funds for import of two French Mistral class assault landing ships and construction of two same ships in Russia. Also, it was reported in mid-2010 about plans to build airfoil ships and 4 aircraft carriers for Russian Navy, although later this information was confuted.
