A fire broke out on Russia's only aircraft carrier, the Admiral Kuznetsov, injuring as many as 12 crew members, in the latest mishap to plague the Soviet-built vessel.

The blaze started in the ship's power plant while the vessel was moored at the Arctic port of Murmansk for an overhaul. The fire spread to an area of as much as 600 square meters (6,500 square feet), Russian media reports said.

Is this the second or third time that Russians have crippled their lone aircraft carrier?

Maybe they should do what China did and spend the next half-century figuring out how to improve their Cesspool country rather than screw with other people's.
