Russia's sole aircraft carrier, Admiral Kuznetsov, is expected to re-enter service by the end of 2024.
The Admiral Kuznetsov has been undergoing extensive repairs and modernization since a major accident in 2018.
The vessel is a crucial part of Russia's naval capabilities, serving as a platform for aircraft operations, including fighter jets and helicopters.
The repairs have involved replacing the damaged sections and upgrading various systems, including the carrier's propulsion system.
The work on Admiral Kuznetsov has been taking place at the Zvezdochka shipyard in northern Russia.
The modernization process aims to enhance the carrier's combat capabilities, operational efficiency, and safety standards.
Once operational, Admiral Kuznetsov will bolster Russia's maritime presence and power projection capabilities.
Re-entry into service of the Admiral Kuznetsov is expected to strengthen Russia's naval forces and maintain its status as a major global military power.
