Russia’s only carrier, damaged in shipyard accident, now on fire


The Kuznetsov, laid up after its floating dry dock sunk underneath the carrier in 2018, was struck by misfortune again after sparks from welding work near an electrical distribution compartment set a cable on fire, which then spread through wiring in the lower deck of the ship. Officials from the shipyard claimed no workers were injured, but a dozen sailors were transported to hospitals, and three more are missing.
