"We are satisfied with the shipyard’s work. The trials are to be completed before the yearend and we hope they will be successful," Rakhmanov said.

After the trials, the ship will be delivered to the Russian Navy, he added.

As Russian Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov said in July, shipborne systems are 97% ready and the state trials of the systems may be completed in the autumn of 2017. According to him, delays are of technical nature.

The Project 22350 frigate Admiral Gorshkov was laid down in early 2006 and launched in the autumn of 2010. The ship started undergoing trials in November 2014. The final stage of its state tests began on March 20, 2017.

The Project 22350 frigate has a displacement of 4,500 tons and a speed of up to 29 knots. It is armed with Oniks (NATO reporting name: SS-N-26 Strobile) or Kalibr (SS-N-27 Sizzler) missiles and the Poliment-Redut surface-to-air missile system.

The Russian Navy is expected to receive six frigates of the type before 2025. As Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said, frigates of the type are expected to become main combat ships in the imminent future
