Also admiral Verma inspected aircraft cruiser of MNF of India «Vikramaditya», repair and reequipment of which are carried out at Sevmash. Firstly he visited the enterprise in June 2007.

Next months will be very important, because it is a period of trials,”  Admiral said to journalists. ” It is necessary to give the aircraft cruiser before winter. Sevmash leadership argued, that they direct all powers for it. When the ship will be at the sea, and airplanes will fly from the deck, we can mark it. But I have to say, that quality of works is very high. We see good traditions of shipbuilding. My gratitude is for all workers of Sevmash and Severodvinsk.”
