In the short term Russia's Black Sea Fleet (BSF) will be reinforced with six Project 636 diesel electric submarines and six new frigates, reported Interfax on June 31 referring to Russian Navy Commander-in-Chief Vladimir Vysotsky.

As for him, in total the Navy will receive about 40 new warships under State Arms Program 2011-2020. By the way, except for French Mistral-class helicopter carriers, it is not planned to import naval arms.

Earlier on July 25, Vysotsky told about plans to reinforce BSF with 3 frigates and 3 diesel subs. At present, Admiralteyskie Verfi shipyard (United Shipbuilding Corporation) builds the first Project 636 submarine meant for BSF.

President of United Shipbuilding Corporation Roman Trotsenko said RUR 3-4 trillions would be appropriated for arms procurement up to 2020. About 15-20 percent of annual spendings is provided for the Navy.
