According to him, Russia has many of the necessary technologies to create such a large ship, but some will need to be finalized

"There are also nuclear power plants of the necessary capacity, which will provide the appropriate speed. But several basic elements of the future aircraft carrier need to be brought to mind, including the take-off and landing systems of aircraft.
