Admiral Kuznetsov, Russia’s only aircraft carrier, caught fire today
during repairs in Murmansk. While officials of the shipyard said that no
shipyard workers were injured, Russia’s TASS news service reports that
at least 12 people (likely Kuznetsov sailors) were injured, some
critically. In addition, three people, possibly including the third-rank
captain in charge of the ship’s repairs, are unaccounted for.
