This is coolbert:

From MARCO POLO through Harry:

"It was announced on May 22 that the shipbuilding yard 'AS3' in Komsomolsk-na-Amure -- an industrial city on the shore of the great Amur River in the Russian Far East--launched a new corvette for the Pacific Fleet. The corvette is named 'Sovershenniy'. The Russians say that she is the first warship that a Far-Eastern yard is building for the Pacific Fleet in this century, and also that it is the first time in the past 23 years that this yard builds a ship for the Pacific Fleet."

This is a Steregushchiy class warship of which four others have previously been built. All others of the class: "are assigned to the Baltic Fleet."

Russia is and has been A PACIFIC POWER!
