On the cruiser "Admiral Kuznetsov", standing at the repair plant "Zvezdochka" in Murmansk, a fire broke out. "Admiral Kuznetsov" is the only aircraft carrier in Russia, it was put into operation in early 1991.
“There was a fire on board the Admiral Kuznetsov, which is in the dry dock of the Zvyozdochka shipyard. There were no casualties, 20 people were evacuated," TASS quoted a source in emergency services as saying.
The head of the United Shipbuilding Corporation Alexei Rakhmanov later clarified that the fire (according to him, we are talking about a local fire) was extinguished.
“The damage control system worked quickly, there is no damage or damage,” Rakhmanov said.
In 2019, a fire was reported on the same aircraft carrier due to uncollected debris.
