burst!Russia’s only active aircraft carrier catches fire, 10 injured

According to Xinhua News Agency, on December 12, local time, the Russian aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov caught fire at the maintenance port. According to Russian media reports, the number of injured has risen to 10.

It is reported that the “Kuznetsov” aircraft carrier is Russia’s only active aircraft carrier. It has been undergoing maintenance and modernization at the port of Murmansk Oblast in northern Russia for two years. The Russian news agency quoted a source at the Zvezdochka shipyard as saying that the cause of the fire was a fire caused by welding operations.

According to the TASS news agency, the upper deck of the aircraft carrier caught fire. At the time of the incident, there were more than 400 people on board the aircraft carrier “Kuznetsov”. Currently, the fire is believed to be under control. The Russian Satellite News Agency reported that the number of injured increased to 10 people.

According to public information, the “Kuznetsov” aircraft carrier was commissioned in 1991 and has not undergone a complete overhaul and comprehensive upgrade before. The Russian military expects the Kuznetsov to be extended by 20 years after repairs and modernization.

The Russian side previously expected that the “Kuznetsov” aircraft carrier will be repaired in 2020 and will return to service in the Northern Fleet in 2021. However, a crane hit the deck of the aircraft carrier from a height in October last year, leaving a hole about 5 meters long and 4 meters wide. The situation has sparked speculation that repair work may be delayed.
