KALININGRAD, March 11. /TASS/. The Project 11356 lead frigate, the Admiral Grigorovich, has entered service in the Russian Navy after the flag hoisting ceremony, a TASS correspondent reports from the scene.
The solemn ceremony of hoisting the St. Andrew naval flag on the frigate Admiral Grigorovich was attended by Black Sea Fleet Commander Alexander Vitko, representatives of the United Shipbuilding Corporation and the administration of the Kaliningrad Region, as well as the descendants of Admiral Ivan Grigorovich in whose honor the frigate was named.
The ceremony of hoisting the St. Andrew flag on the Admiral Grigorovich frigate was preceded a day earlier by the warship’s acceptance at the Yantar Shipyard, which is building the Project 11356 frigates for the Russian Black Sea Fleet.
This year, two more frigates of this series, the Admiral Essen and the Admiral Makarov, are expected to join the Russian Black Sea Fleet.
The Project 11356 frigates have been designed by the Severnoye Design Bureau in St. Petersburg.
