The group included the carrier Admiral Kuznetsov, the heavy nuclear missile cruiser “Pyotr Veliky”, large anti-submarine ships “Severomorsk” and “Vice-Admiral Kulakov” and support vessels.

At the same time commander of the Russian Navy was not surprised by the reaction of NATO.
“We for the first time since the construction of a heavy aviabearing cruiser used our marine aviation in combat. Of course, it calls attention primarily on the part of NATO countries”, – said Korolev.
