"As of today, the Russian Navy's combat strength is only two nuclear guided-missile cruisers, the Admiral Nakhimov and Pyotr Velikiy, which is the flagship of the Northern Fleet. Apparently, the ship requires modernization. Sevmash shipyard is currently completing the deep modernization [of the Admiral Nakhimov]. It will finish [its overhaul] by the turn of the 20s when it will replace the Pyotr Velikiy," Bursuk said.
The Admiral Nakhimov is the third of four Kirov-class guided-missile cruisers operated by the Soviet and then Russian Navy from 1980 to 1998.
