"We have the entire design documentation on the ship and the construction documents have been taken into account. In the early 1990s, we received all preliminary notices from the Black Sea Plant, including the modifications introduced during the construction, examination and trials of the ship," Vlasov said.

According to him, the Nevskoye Design Bureau is cooperating with the Zvyozdochka Shipyard, the Proletarsky Plant and other enterprises that will be involved in the repair of the ship.

"We as designers are ready for any work on the ship Admiral Kuznetsov, which will be assigned by the Navy," Vlasov said.
During the repair, the ship is planned to receive new desalination units that will provide high-quality drinking water, he added.

Besides, the Nevskoye Design Bureau is ready to offer the upgraded design of the Project 11711 large amphibious assault ship to the Defense Ministry.
"If the Navy expresses such a wish, we are ready to offer the upgraded design of the ship. It has better habitability and running capabilities," the CEO said.
