LONDON (QHA) -

British Defense Secretary Michael Fallon called the heavy aircraft-carrying battleship of the Russian Armed Forces "Admiral Kuznetsov", which returned from Syria, a ship of shame, according to Reuters.

Fallon warned that the British Armed Forces will carefully watch the passage of the Russian naval group near the country.

"We will keep a close eye on the Admiral Kuznetsov as it skulks back to Russia; a ship of shame whose mission has only extended the suffering of the Syrian people," he said.

The RF air mission in Syria with the participation of "Admiral Kuznetsov" had suffered a loss before the operation started.

Russian aircraft carrier "Admiral Kuznetsov", launched December 4th, 1987, is the only aircraft carrier in the world, which may be located in the Black Sea, since under Montreux convention "pure" aircraft carrier ships must not pass through the Straits of Bosporus and Dardanelles, and "Admiral Kuznetsov" with its missile weapon, is classified as an "aircraft carrying battleship."
