Russia finally acknowledged this heavy fact...

According to the US "Foreign Scholars" website, on the evening of October 29, local time, a floating dock that was undergoing renovation of the Russian "Kuznetsov" aircraft carrier sank into the water due to a breakdown, and a crane fell on the deck of the aircraft carrier. , leaving a hole of 4 meters and 5 meters. The incident resulted in four injuries.

Today, Russian officials have finally admitted that they are no longer able to renovate the only Russian aircraft carrier. Although the Russian shipbuilding industry is said to be still looking for other methods, there is still no timely and effective way to continue the renovation of this aircraft carrier.

The Tass news agency quoted Alexei Rakhmanov, head of the Russian joint shipbuilding company, as saying, "In addition to the 'Kuznetsov', we have all the other ships. Our business, including ship repairs. The factory is in operation. After all, we can carry out the docking work in North Devonsk, not far from Murmansk. In this respect, we have no problem."

But the Russian shipbuilding industry does not have enough facilities to accommodate the aircraft carrier, and it takes at least 6 to 12 months to recover the sunken floating dock. According to public sources, Russia may need international support to carry out this complex operation because there is no equipment to move the dock off the sea floor.

According to the report, although the works in the cabin can continue, there is no large floating dock, and all the works of the bilge have to stop, so Russia is unlikely to keep up with the current renovation progress. Originally, the aircraft carrier could resume service within two years. After the accident, it was reported that the North Devinsk Shipyard had another floating dock PD-1, which could be used to continue the maintenance work of the aircraft carrier. However, after evaluation, it was found that there is no facility to accommodate the size of the Kuznetsov.

The Kuznetsov was commissioned in 1990 and was renovated from 1996 to 1998. It is the only active carrier in Russia. The aircraft carrier was deployed in Mediterranean waters last year to support Russian military operations in Syria and was recently parked in the waters of Kola Bay near Murmansk for maintenance.

The PD-50 floating dock is one of the largest floating docks in the world and is mainly used to repair large Russian surface ships and submarines.
