Russia’s Plan to Build New Warships Infuriated the US: China

BEIJING – Russia’s decision to start building several large warships at once turned out to be an unexpected American reaction, Chinese media analysts drew such conclusions, BulgarianMilitary.com has learned.
Some time ago, news came from Russia which surprised the world community and made a particularly strong impression on the American military leadership. The latter was probably furious. Moscow has announced plans to launch six large and several dozen small vessels over the next few years.
According to Chinese journalists, no one expected this from the Russian Federation. This is reported by the Sohu edition.
“Russia has intrigued the United States enough with its plans,” note the authors of Sohu.
The laying of two Project 23900 universal amphibious assault ships, the frigates Admiral Yumashev and Admiral Spiridonov, and the nuclear submarines Voronezh and Vladivostok, took place in the Russian Federation.
All these combat units will receive the most modern weapons, which will significantly increase the combat capacity of the Russian Navy.
The Russian Federation’s decision came as a big surprise to Western states. This is due to the underestimation of the Russians by the United States and its allies, which promotes the theory of Russian economic weakness. They always believed that Russia did not have the money to build large ships. As Chinese analysts have noted, the West has begun to forget Russia’s rather curious ability to implement big plans for minimal funds.
“The Russian Federation has always managed to maintain its position as one of the greatest military powers, even despite economic difficulties. The more power and capability it becomes, the more difficult it is for the United States to maintain its status as the primary world hegemon. Americans are particularly worried that they have not been able to find an effective way to resist these processes,” added experts from the PRC.
Analysts predict that shortly, Russia should expect another blow from the United States, which does not give up its frantic attempts to slow down the development of its opponents. The authors of Sohu hope that the spirit will eventually take over, and Americans will not cross the dangerous line.
The United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) continues on its own initiative to work on the development of a Project Husky nuclear submarine and a Project Kalina diesel submarine, which belong to the 5th generation of submarines, as we reported it on September 9th.
The developer of the Husky is the central design office for Malakhit, and the Kalina is the foremost design office for Rubin.
“No one cancelled these projects. We continue to develop them as part of what can be done proactively. There was part of the work that was paid for by the Ministry of Defense; part of the book is now proceeding proactively. Some problems can be solved with relatively little money and engineering work. But our options for spending the net profit are also limited. We would very much like decisions on promising fifth-generation boats to be taken in the very near future,” said RIA Novosti quoting USC chief Alexei Rakhmanov as saying.
Both projects – Husky and Kalina – are classified, so there is no official information on these submarines. Recall that Alexey Rakhmanov had earlier admitted that the serial production problems of Russian diesel-electric submarines of Project 677 “Lada” showed the correctness of the decision not to change the diesel-electric submarines of Project 636 “Varshavyanka”.
In September 2020, reports appeared to indicate that OEMs had seriously delayed the delivery of two submarines from Project 677 Lada. So far, of the three submarines deposited, only one, “St. Petersburg”, was finally assembled, and the other two -“Kronstadt” and “Velikie Luki”- could not be completed for more than 15 years.
