Yes, the West New Guinea dispute was ongoing. Ordering the subs was part of their confrontation strategy with the Dutch. The Soviets also sold them a Sverdlov class cruiser in '62 but it wasn't delivered until '63. About 100 warships of various classes were sold by the Soviets to Indonesia from 1959 to 1965.
