In the new training year, Black Sea Fleet (BSF) will prepare for acceptance of two new warships and two submarines being built by Yantar (Kaliningrad) and Admiralteyskie Verfi (St. Petersburg) shipyards respectively.

Crews for new ships will be formed on a competitive basis amid graduates of higher naval educational institutions and most qualified BSF servicemen.

The newly formed crews will traditionally begin studying theoretical issues prior to commissioning of the ships. They will participate in sea trials together with shipyard experts and learn how to operate new equipment.

Forming and preparing crews for new ships is one of the fleet's priority tasks in the new training year.
