Congratulating the ship’s crew on their arrival at the permanent base, the commander of the Northern Fleet, Vice Admiral Alexander Moiseev, stated that “the submarine cruiser Prince Vladimir will be part of the group of strategic submarine cruisers - the basis of the naval strategic forces of the Russian Federation.”
Vice Admiral Alexander Moiseev, who served most of his service on such cruisers, also noted that "the cruiser has the most modern weapons and unique equipment that are an effective factor in preventing armed conflicts." He also emphasized that "this is the most peaceful weapon and its use is unacceptable, it is precisely its presence and constant readiness for use that is the guarantor of Russia's peace and security."
The commander of the Northern Fleet assigned the command of the submarine forces and the crew of the cruiser the task "in the shortest possible time, taking into account the experience of testing and operating experience of the cruisers of the Borey shooting gallery, to master it, prepare it and take up combat duty."

Strategic missile submarine cruiser Prince Vladimir was laid down at Sevmash on July 30, 2012. The ship was built according to the improved Borey-A project (955A) and belongs to the fourth generation of submarine nuclear submarines created for the Russian Navy.
From the first three Boreevs (the Yury Dolgoruky, Alexander Nevsky and Vladimir Monomakh submarine cruisers), the Prince Vladimir is distinguished by less noise, more advanced systems for maneuvering and keeping at depth, as well as weapon control.
“Prince Vladimir” is the fourth of the “Boreans” mastered in the Northern Fleet.
June 12, on the Day of Russia, at the Sevmash enterprise in Severodvinsk, under the leadership of the Commander-in-Chief of the Navy, Admiral Nikolai Evmenov, the Naval flag was hoisted on the nuclear submarine cruiser Prince Vladimir. The cruiser entered the combat structure of the Russian Navy and was enlisted in the Red Banner Strategic Missile Submarine Division of the Northern Fleet.
