Russia has no plans to build aircraft carriers before 2020

Russia’s Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov told journalists on Friday that Moscow has no intentions to build aircraft carriers before 2020.

“So far, no money has been allocated as part of the [state weapons procurement] program for the period up to 2020. [United Shipbuilding Corporation general director Roman] Trotsenko’s announcement that we are about to start building aircraft carrying cruisers is not true, to put it mildly,” Serdyukov said.
