Russia launched its seventh Project 20380 Steregushchiy-class corvette at Severnaya Shipyard in St Petersburg on 12 March.

Retivy , which is the fifth ship of the class built at the yard, is intended to serve with the Russian Navy's Black Fleet. This will make it the first Project 20380 corvette to join the Black Sea Fleet.

Two additional Project 20380-class ships are currently under construction at Severnaya Shipyard and two more are being built at the Amur Shipyard in Komsomolsk-on-Amur, in Russia's Far East. Three more advanced Project 20385 and 20386 variants of the class are being worked on at Severnaya Shipyard or undergoing sea trials.
