Recall that the “Admiral Kuznetsov” returned to Russia after staying off the coast of Syria, where the carrier has done (or tried to do) combat missions.
As previously reported, “Admiral Kuznetsov” and the heavy nuclear missile cruiser Russia “Peter the Great” went home from Syria.
During operations in Syria, “Admiral Kuznetsov” has lost two fighters – MiG-29 and su-33. The accident was explained by the failure of cables, which should stop the aircraft on the deck.
