"We are closely monitoring the "Admiral Kuznetsov", as this "ship of shame", whose task is only to prolong the suffering of the Syrian people" goes back to Russia, said the Minister of defence sir Michael Fallon. The ship and its certificates are on the way back to Russia after participating in the air strikes in Syria. They went out to the Mediterranean sea earlier this month.

In December, they succeeded in promoting fighters from the key city of Aleppo. A brutal civil war in Syria has raged for almost 6 years and killed about 400 thousand people.
Fallon said British forces are closely monitoring the Russian vessels. "We control every step of the Russian courts to keep the Kingdom safe," said Fallon. At the time, Russia said that the voyage of the "Admiral Kuznetsov" have to "provide a naval presence in important regions of the World ocean. Special attention will be paid to ensuring the safety of Maritime navigation and other Russian Maritime economic activities, and to respond to new types of modern threats, such as piracy and international terrorism".
