And there is only one way out - contract service.- said Korolev, adding that professional naval schools last year trained more than 1000 people in 200 specialties.

We have kept the highest special officer classes, this is the training of ship commanders, flagship specialists. I have little idea now what it would be like if we lost this excellent educational institution. We have surpassed the naval formation that was in the Soviet Union by an order of magnitude. And according to the flying of our pilots and the surfacing of our ships today can only be compared with the times of the USSR- said the commander in chief.
