Buzakov said that the mooring trials of the lead ship Ivan Papanin are scheduled for late 2022. The ship is planned to start shipbuilders sea trials in the third quarter of 2023.

Project 23550 patrol ships is a class of armed icebreaking patrol ships with two vessels currently under construction for the Russian Navy at Admiralty Shipyard in Saint Petersburg, Russia. Two ships have been ordered from the Admiralty Shipyard in 2016. The ships are designed to patrol the Russian territorial waters and exclusive economic zone in the Arctic.

Project 23550 patrol ships have a planned displacement of 6,800 tons, a length of 114 metres (374 ft 0 in) and a draught of 6 metres (19 ft 8 in). They are designed to break through ice up to 1.5 metres (4 ft 11 in) thick.

The ships will be equipped with two Project 03160 Raptor type military boats, a Ka-32 helicopter and small hovercraft. The core crew is planned at 60 with accommodation for an additional 50 mission specialists. Armament will include a 100-millimetre (3.9 in) gun (some sources state a 76 mm, 3 in gun) and 3M-54 Kalibr anti-ship missiles.
