"The engineering design for the carrier has been prepared, and we are waiting for a response by the Defense Ministry," he said.

According to Vlasov, the timeline and list of specific works shall be hinged on the financing of the program.

"The repair may take two to three and a half years," he said without specifying the amount of financing.

Previously, a source in the defense industry had told TASS that the Zvyozdochka Shipyard would start the Admiral Kuznetsov’s repair in the earlier half of 2017.

The Admiral Kuznetsov was designed by Nevskoye, commissioned by the Russian Navy in the early 1990s and has not undergone medium repair and upgrade since then.
