    Great! Let’s wait few years untill the oil price grows or transform it into an aircraft carrier.

    I suspect that this is double hull reinforced in order to prevent spillage and operate in the arctic region—where Russian sovereignty precludes transport by fascist nations

      The USMIC seem to think that ice in the polar regions will get thinner and disappear. That’s where listening to Al Gore has got them.
      Russia is obviously planning for a whole different future.
