Caspian Flotilla started recruitment of crews for newest corvettes Grad Sviyazhsk and Uglich; construction of the ships is being completed at JSC Zelenodolsk Shipyard (Tatarstan, Russia).

Only contract servicemen are selected for the crews. Officers and enlisted personnel must have at least 2 Class qualification level.

After crewing, servicemen will go to Zelenodolsk to attend launching ceremony of the ships along with shipbuilders, and then start mastering newest arms and shipboard equipment during trials in the Caspian Sea.
