Fire on biggest Russian ship
A FIRE on Russia’s largest warship has injured 10 people with seven of them remaining in intensive care.
The blaze on the Admiral Kuznetsov, Russia’s only aircraft carrier, began amid ongoing welding upgrades while docked in the Arctic sea port of Murmansk.
The battleship was first used in 2016 in the Mediterranean Sea to launch carrier-borne combat missions on targets in Syria.
The fire is the second major emergency on the ship since it docked for repairs. In October 2018, a crane collapsed on the carrier’s deck, injuring four.
