Russia’s third Borey-class sub blessed for sea trials | Russia & India Report

A third Borey-class nuclear-powered submarine will soon begin trials in the White Sea, and a Russian Orthodox priest has blessed the sub and its crew, the Sevmash shipyard said Monday.

The Vladimir Monomakh is due to enter service in 2014. “Today a prayer was conducted on board the guided missile submarine to evoke the Holy Spirit to serve a good cause,” the spokesman said, adding that the priest had also blessed the shipyard personnel.

The spokesman declined to say exactly when the submarine would go to sea.
