MOSCOW, March 2. /TASS/. Russia’s Navy will receive a new promising aircraft carrier, Navy Commander Viktor Chirkov told reporters on Monday.
Presently, the Russian Navy has only one aircraft carrier - the Admiral Kuznetsov - since 1991.
"The Navy will have an aircraft carrier. The research companies are working on it, and strictly in compliance with the requirements from the Chief Commander," he said during a trip to the Kolomensky Zavod plant near Moscow (a supplier of diesel engines for the Russian Navy).
