Russia's second Project 22350 Gorshkov-class frigate, Admiral Kasatonov, is conducting trials before commissioning, the Northern Fleet press service reported on the Ministry of Defence website. The service announced on 11 February that Admiral Kasatonov had arrived in Severomorsk following trials of its electronic warfare systems with the Northern Fleet in the Barents Sea. This included passive jamming and creating decoys to defend against missile attack.
