A fire broke out aboard the Project 11435 aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov of the Russian Northern Fleet on December 12, 2019
It came a day after a mystery fire at Vladimir Putin’s only aircraft carrier while the vessel was under repairs from an earlier inferno.
The ill-fated Admiral Kuznetsov was docked in the Zvyozdochka shipyard in Murmansk for repairs when the blaze started on the vessel which has been beset with problems.
The fire erupted in the cabins on the port side of the flagship of the Russian navy, which also caught fire in 2019.
The blaze today could further delay the Admiral Kuznetsov’s return to active deployment.

The past week has also seen two explosions and major infernos at key energy facilities in Irkutsk region.
Armageddon-like flames shot into the sky from the giant blaze at the Markovskoye condensate treatment unit in the biting minus 22C cold.
The scene from hell was caused by the ‘jet fire’ in the east Siberian district of Ust-Kut.
At least seven people suffered injuries in a blast at Angarsk three days earlier that was compared to an earthquake or plane crash for its force.
Separately, a huge explosion hit a major Russian gas pipeline some 560 miles from the Ukrainian border.
