On October 3 a ceremonial hoisting the ensign of Maritime Border Service of the Russian Federation on patrol ship of Project 22460 Amethyst took place at the Almaz Shipyard.

Congratulating the team of the Almaz and the border guards the Governor of St. Petersburg said that "Amethyst is another ship from Jewels series, which does not end there". Russian Border Guard has got Rubin (Ruby), Zhemchug (Pearl), Brilliant and Izumrud (Emerald) ships. Chief of the Border Department of FSB of Russia in St. Petersburg and Leningrad region Lieutenant-General Zabrodin in his speech emphasized the high level of technical equipment of the ships. He also said that "this ship was very waited in Murmansk region, but with the changes occurred in the country, she will go to the Crimea".

Patrol ships of Project 22460 are designed for the protection of state borders, territorial waters and continental shelf, for rescue operations, environmental monitoring and post-disaster recovery. Alongside the frontier guard missions of this class ships, the operations against terrorism and piracy are increasingly growing.

One of the main features of the ships is a helo deck for light helicopter, and a boatslide at the aft part for high-speed RHIB designed, for example, for fast transportation of a boarding party to intruder ship.
