MOSCOW, September 7. /TASS/. Russia’s heavy nuclear-powered missile cruiser Pyotr Veliky has been docked for repairs in the Murmansk Region in north-west Russia, Head of the Northern Fleet’s press service Captain 1st Rank Vadim Serga said on Monday.
The ship will be repaired at the 82nd shipyard in the settlement of Roslyakovo, he added.
"The repairs of the ship will be completed by the beginning of a new training year when the Northern Fleet’s flagship is due to accomplish a set of scheduled combat training tasks in the sea," the officer said.
The cruiser was docked at the weekend in accordance with the schedule, he added. The ship’s crew is preparing the cruiser’s compartments designated for repairs.
"Measures will be taken to restore the ship’s technical readiness during its stay in the dry dock," the officer said.
The Northern Fleet reported in late August that the cruiser was planned to undergo repairs. Earlier, the Russian sole aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov, also based in the North, underwent scheduled repairs.
The Pyotr Veliky is the Russian Navy’s sole operating nuclear-powered cruiser. It is the world’s biggest warship other than an aircraft carrier equipped with a nuclear propulsion plant.
