Vladimir Putin has traveled to a shipyard to participate in the commissioning of new nuclear submarines, the Associated Press reports.

The Russian president's trip to the Sevmash shipyard in Severodvinsk, in Russia's northwestern Archangelsk region, comes three days after he announced his intention to seek another six-year term.

Monday's visit to Sevmash included Putin hoisting the navy's flag on the newly built Emperor Alexander III and the Krasnoyarsk nuclear submarine.

Emperor Alexander III is the seventh nuclear-powered Borei-class submarine to enter service. Each is armed with 16 nuclear-tipped Bulava intercontinental ballistic missiles.

Putin is said to have announced that three such submarines are under construction. They are part of Russia's nuclear triad, which also includes land-based nuclear missiles and nuclear-armed strategic bombers./ CNA
