Hardly surprising, the Russians have been talking about building a new carrier for most of the last decade but they are, to put it not too politely, talking shit.

With the exception of their nuclear submarine capability, Russia is hard pressed to build much beyond corvettes and frigates, anything bigger is out of the question.

That's what happens when you have an economy smaller that Australia's while trying to maintain superpower pretentions, plus maintaining an aging nuclear triad.
