    Even if there is a political decision to declare the repair completed, and the ship returned to the fleet, its service will not last long. Yes, and this service will consist in a demonstration once a year at the parade. The combat value of the Kuznetsov is a negative value, since it will only divert the forces and means of the fleet, air defense for its own protection, without adding anything to the combat power of the Northern Fleet.

    Some crooked repairmen. Whatever they take, it turns out a fire. In the media, everyone writes about the lack of analogues, but what exactly does not have these very analogues? Not a single serious ship. 16 mines are put on large frigates, chickens are laughing. If only they built such a frigate in 3 years, they build them for 9, 12 years. Everyone laughs at China, and China is building ships of a much more serious rank in 1, 2 years. And he builds them in dozens, and not piece by piece.

      Under Tsar Nicholas-2, the battleship Empress Maria was built in 2 years (google it), and in modern years, we cannot build it even in a decade. At the same time, we have all modern technologies (for example, electric welding), etc. ... just banal theft and cutting the budget

    Another example of blatant irresponsibility is the thousand-year-old mentality, which always intensifies whenever power is weakened in Russia. I think that for this now one should not be shot or put in jail for a long time. It's time to establish penal battalions, where to send the perpetrators of such incidents, so that they wash away their guilt with blood at the front.

    The British have always been vigilant about the enemy fleet. So the tragicomedy of accidents with Kuzey fits into the English repertoire. Why is such a catastrophic fate with Kuzey, and enemy approaches and security of stealth, and together they spread rot forerunner of Russian aircraft carrying ships. Here it is more the strategy that dominates, which is not controlled by temporary workers in the government of the Russian Federation. According to this, only a sprat fleet for the Russian Federation today ....
