…. Inside

"PD-50, a huge floating dry dock at the 82nd Repair Shipyard in Roslyakovo, Russia, accidentally sank on Oct. 29, 2018 while Admiral Kuznetsov, Russia's only aircraft carrier, was inside for repairs. Kuznetsov is still afloat but the dry dock could be a total loss.

While injuries and possible deaths in addition to damage to the flight deck — caused by a collapsing 70-ton crane — are noteworthy, the loss of the PD-50 could potentially ripple through the Russian navy and exacerbate its persistent problems with maintenance and modernization…."

Back in the day, when I was in Naval Intelligence, we considered the Soviet navy to be the most professional and competent of Ivan's combat arms.

Unfortunately, cutting the training and maintenance budgets is the height of stupidity and incompetence.

Don't get me wrong, it's horrible that people died due to someone else's stupidity.

But I think it's good that the Russians are in trouble with getting their ships refitted.
