Kaliningrad Baltic shipyard «Yantar» has suspended production of the second batch of frigates of project 11356 ordered by the Ministry of defence of the Russian Federation, due to rupture of cooperation with Ukraine. About this 26 December, said the head of the enterprise Eduard Efimov, «Interfax».
