Russia will continue rearmament of submarine base in the forbidden town of Vilyuchinsk, Kamchatka Peninsula, said Russian president Vladimir Putin appearing in the Parliament.

"Russia should have two bases for our strategic submarine force, one in European part, and one in the Far East. That will form very powerful and essential balance in maintaining our national security. These two clusters are located remotely, which is of great military strategic significance", reports Interfax citing Putin.

He emphasized that nuclear submarine force would develop and receive new nuclear missile subs under the national defense strengthening and rearmament program.

"Indeed, we do have rearmament plans, including those for Vilyuchinsk naval base, and they will be implemented, everything is up to schedule", Putin said.

Living conditions of submariners will be improved as well, added the president.

According to RIA Novosti, the up-to-date naval base accommodating nuclear-powered submarines was established in Vilyuchinsk in 2010.
