Russia's Shoigu says to receive 12 ships this year -RIA

- Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu said on Friday that the Russian has received two ships this year, and is to receive another 12 by the end of 2023, Russian state agency RIA reported.

TASS, another state agency, cited Shoigu as saying that the country was developing submarines and undersea drones.

In July, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the Russian would receive 30 ships in 2023. In his comments, Shoigu did give a reason for the sharp decrease in expected deliveries.
