MOSCOW, May 3. /TASS/. The lead Project 885M Kazan nuclear-powered submarine will be provisionally turned over to the Russian Navy on May 7, a source in the defense industry told TASS.
"Ceremonies of the acceptance statement signing for Kazan and the St. Andrew’s flag hoisting will provisionally take place on May 7," the source said. The submarine completed a verification sortie in late April, he added.
TASS has no official confirmation for this piece of information.
A source told TASS earlier that the submarine would be delivered to the Navy by the Russian Navy Day celebrated on July 25 this year. The delivery time for the submarine was repeatedly postponed. It was previously planned that the submarine would join the Navy by 2020 year-end but it failed to accomplish the state trials program within the prescribed timeframe.

MOSCOW, May 7. /TASS/. The Kazan nuclear-powered submarine (project Yasen-M) has joined the Russian Navy, the Defense Ministry told the media on Friday.

The fourth-generation nuclear-powered submarine Kazan (Yasen project) joined the Russian Navy in a special ceremony at the Sevmash shipyard in Severodvinsk on Friday. The Navy’s commander-in-chief, Admiral Nikolai Yevmenov, attended the event to hand the St. Andrew’s Flag to the submarine’s commander, Captain 1st class Alexander Beketov, to be hoisted up the submarine’s flagpole, the Defense Ministry said.

Yevmenov expressed the certainty that Kazan’s crew would handle their mission of strengthening the nation’s defenses with dignity.

The lead submarine of project 885M (Yasen-M) Kazan was launched on March 31, 2017. Factory trials began on September 25, 2018. Project 885/885M submarines are armed with Oniks and Kalibr cruise missiles. Further down the road, they may be configured to carry Tsirkon hypersonic missiles.
