The newest Project 955A Borey-A strategic nuclear-powered missile submarine Knyaz Oleg arrived at the main base of the Northern Fleet – Severomorsk – and began planned preparations for solving the assigned tasks.

Upon arrival of the submarine at the base, it was examined by the commander of the Northern Fleet, Admiral Alexander Moiseev, and the commission of the fleet. The fleet commander assessed the state of the ship and the progress of the crew’s training. Admiral Alexander Moiseev noted the professionalism of the submariners and their desire to master the cruiser as soon as possible.

In the Northern Fleet, the crew of the Knyaz Oleg SSBN will have to undergo a basic training complex and pass course tasks at sea. After confirming the readiness of the crew for the inter-fleet transition, the cruiser will go to a permanent place of service – to the Pacific Fleet to the Vilyuchinsk base on the Kamchatka Peninsula.


The Project 955A Borey-A strategic missile submarine Knyaz Oleg was built at the Sevmash Nuclear Shipbuilding Center and successfully tested, including naval missile and torpedo weapons, in the White Sea with the support of the forces of the White Sea Naval Base and the Northern Fleet. On December 21 last year, with the hoisting of the Andreevsky flag, the ship was enlisted in the Russian Navy.
