A US military veteran and US House representative Brian Mast congratulated the US Navy with a tweet on Sunday. It would have been a mundane congratulation if only one striking detail did not attract attention. Mast attached a picture of the Russia's powerful Pyotr Velikiy battlecruiser to his post.

Is it so hard to find pictures of US vessels on the internet?— StoicLion (@StoicLion1973) October 13, 2019
The heavy nuclear guided-missile cruiser Pyotr Velikiy is one of the largest warships of its class in the world. The Russian battlecruiser is designed, predominantly, to carry out attacks and destruction of an adversary's air carrier groups.
