Russia is working on 5th generation submarines

The developer of the Husky is the Malakhit Central Design Bureau, and the Kalina is the Rubin Central Design Bureau.
“Nobody canceled these projects. We are continuing to develop them as part of what can be done proactively. There was a part of the work that was paid for by the Ministry of Defense, part of the work is now going on proactively. There are issues that can be solved with relatively little money and engineering work. But our options for spending net profit are also limited. We would very much like the decisions on promising fifth-generation boats to be made in the very near future,” RIA Novosti quotes the words of the head of the USC Alexei Rakhmanov.
Both projects – Husky and Kalina – are classified, so there is no official information about these submarines. Let us remind you that earlier Alexey Rakhmanov admitted that problems with serial production of Russian diesel-electric submarines of Project 677 “Lada” showed the correctness of the decision not to change diesel-electric submarines of Project 636 “Varshavyanka” on them.
In September 2020, information appeared that equipment suppliers had seriously delayed the delivery of two Project 677 Lada submarines. Until now, out of the three laid down submarines, only one, “St. Petersburg”, has been finally assembled, and the other two – “Kronstadt” and “Velikie Luki” – cannot be completed for more than 15 years.
