India may buy three Project 11356 patrol boats, which are being built for the Russian Navy in the “Baltic Shipyard” Yantar “in Kaliningrad, as Indian Ambassador to Russia Pound Srinivasan Raghavan told “Interfax” on Tuesday.
The diplomat said that India would make every effort to resolve the issues for the supply of engines for frigates under construction.
In early September, a source at the plant told “Interfax” that they were talking about a possible transfer of the frigates “Admiral Butakov”, “Admiral Istomin” and “Admiral Kornilov,” to India which were being built at “Yantar”.
According to the source, the complexity in the ships’ completion is associated with the Ukraine’s refusal to supply frigates for power plants. At the same time, according to the source, the Russian engines required for the frigates will be ready before the end of 2017.
At the “Yantar” they are familiar with the Indian side’s requirements, including those regarding the installation of the equipment on the ships, which is produced in India and other countries.
