Russia's only aircraft carrier damaged whilst undergoing repairs after floating dry dock collapses



Russia's only aircraft carrier has been damaged after the floating dry dock repair facility she was in collapsed and sank in the early hours of October 30.

The Admiral Kuznetsov has been undergoing repairs since April this year on one of the world's biggest floating docks in Kola Bay near Murmansk, close to where Russia's Northern Fleet is based. She was due to go back into service in 2021.

Four workers were hospitalised with hypothermia and one is missing after the incident. A sudden electrical outage is thought to have shut down water pumps on the dry dock, causing the ballast tanks to flood rapidly, leading to the structure listing before sinking completely.   

As the vessel sank, the two 70-tonne cranes on board collapsed. One crashed onto the deck of the aircraft carrier, reportedly creating a five-metre hole in the ship’s hull.

Pavel Felgenhauer, an independent defence columnist for the newspaper Novaya Gazeta, told the Telegraph Admiral Kuznetsov should be inspected for damage in a dry dock, but that this was a virtual impossibility unless a new one was built.

Liberals haven't worked out yet that taking God out of Society destroys society (and morality as such).
