The Admiral Sergei Gorshkov class frigate (alt.Eng. Sergey Gorshkov), also known as Project 22350, is the latest Russian Navy frigate that will be able to execute long-range strike, anti-submarine and escort missions in far ocean zones. According to some sources, Project 22350 was based upon Project 1135.6 Talwar/Krivak IV class frigate developed by Russia for India.

The Russian Navy intends to procure 20 such ships through 2015. The lead ship, Admiral Sergei Gorshkov (actual name Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union Sergey Gorshkov), was laid down on February 10, 2006 in Severnaya Verf Shipyard at St. Petersburg.[1] In late October 2008 the Russian deputy prime minister, Sergei Ivanov, announced that the first ship in the class would be ready by 2011. He also said that the timely construction of combat ships is now a priority task of the Russian shipbuilding industry.[1]

On June 24, 2009, during the "Mvms-Imds 2009" International navies' expo, the Russian Navy Commander Admiral Vladimir Vysotsky announced that the production of a second "Admiral Gorshkov" class frigate would begin at Severnaya Verf shipyard in St. Petersburg by the end of the year.[2] In November 2009 the Severnaya Verf shipyard in St Petersburg announced that it would start the construction of the second Gorshkov frigate on November 26.[3]
