The Navy has launched its first new-generation nuclear submarine since the Soviet collapse, the submarine's maker said.
The Yury Dolgoruky was launched at the secretive Sevmash shipyard in the Arctic town of Severodvinsk on Tuesday night, Sevmash said in a short statement. It can carry 107 sailors for 100 days without surfacing.
The long-delayed submarine was moved to a dry dock last year in the presence of First Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Ivanov, who hailed the construction as a major step toward a naval revival.
