"The nuclear-powered submarine Perm is planned to be laid down on July 29, 2016 on the eve of Navy Day [it will be celebrated on July 31 ]," the press office said.

According to the press office, all nuclear-powered submarines are laid down and delivered to the customer "in strict compliance with the schedule agreed with the Defense Ministry and the Navy."
Sevmash Shipyard CEO Mikhail Budnichenko said earlier that the sixth Project 885M Yasen-M-class nuclear-powered submarine would be laid down on the eve of Navy Day.

As of today, the Russian Navy operates only one Project 885 nuclear-powered submarine, the Severodvinsk, which was laid down in 1993. Its operational evaluation was completed in the spring of 2016. New Yasen-M-class nuclear-powered submarines are being built under the modified 885M project.
