Lead ship of Project 22350, frigate Admiral Gorshkov being built by Severnaya Verf shipyard in St. Petersburg will start state acceptance trials late in 2013, said the yard's director Alexander Ushakov.

"In this year we plan to finish with cable routing. Crew is going to settle into the ship in March 2013, then dockside trials will begin in order to start shipyard's sea trials in the fourth quarter of 2013", said Ushakov.

As for him, financing of works on Admiral Gorshkov has been going systematically, in contrast to other frigates, corvettes, and a special-purpose ship built by the shipyard.
