Probably demotivated technicians/ milliairy personal who have watched the entire millitairy might of the nation go into a downward spiral. If I am informed correct there is only one super boomer Typhoon class sub in service and from what I read only one aircraft carrier....if they are quick fixing the boat up and running that is.
They gave up...they just do not care anymore... Capitalism and all its corruption can walk right into the door and take over without firing a shot.. (uhmm...maybe thats why there are all these problems in russia)

Q: how do you sink a Russian aircraft carrier
A: put it in water
The article said the floating I assume dry dock, lost electrical power which cause the ballast tanks to fill and it sank .
My first question is why wasn’t there more redundancy in the system ?

The Russians are preparing for war!

The Russian navy plans to test missiles in international waters off the Norwegian coast this week, said Norwegian and NATO officials on Monday, as NATO conducts its biggest exercise since the Cold War in the Scandinavian country.
Avinor and the defense minister said Russia had informed Norway about the test on Friday.
Trident Juncture began last week and is to continue as scheduled. It involves around 50,000 soldiers, 10,000 vehicles and more than 300 aircraft and ships.

According to the newspaper Klassekampen, the Russian exercise will take place in the Norwegian Sea just off the Møre Coast, a short distance from Kristiansund, Molde and Ålesund, and in an area with several Norwegian offshore installations. The exercise will take place from November 1st to 3rd, from 7 am to 2 pm every day.
Senior Researcher at the Norwegian Foreign Policy Institute, June Wilhelmsen, tells NRK that she does not think it’s a coincidence that the missile test occurs just now.
– I can not know for sure. But it is very likely that this is a kind of a reaction to Trident Juncture, she says.
USS Harry S. Truman is of the Nimitz-class, the largest nuclear-powered aircraft carriers in the U.S. Navy. The ship has 90 planes and helicopters and a crew of about 5,000 people.
An American aircraft carrier last participated in a NATO exercise in Norway in 1989.
