"The nuclear-powered submarine Kuzbass started undergoing repairs at the Zvezda Shipyard in 2009. The technical capabilities of the multipurpose submarine have been restored and the submarine has been furnished with advanced equipment," the administration said.
"Now, the submarine is ready to go to sea to accomplish combat and tactical missions," the administration added.
The K-419 nuclear-powered submarine Kuzbass was laid down on July 28, 1991 at the Leninsky Komsomol Shipyard (now known as the Amur Shipyard).
The submarine Kuzbass was put afloat on May 18, 1992. It joined the Russian Pacific Fleet on February 5, 1993.
Before the repairs, the submarine Kuzbass was on combat duty in the Pacific and the Arctic Oceans.
The submarine Kuzbass started undergoing repairs at the Zvezda Shipyard in 2009.
The shipyard has restored and partially upgraded the submarine’s equipment.
As the Russian Defense Ministry’s press office said earlier, the submarine’s life support systems, as well as radio technical equipment and sonar apparatus have been modernized.
