    russia has no money to build new nuclear powered cruisers .....hence it is choosing to reactivate old ones.

    it true that they may be outdated the the era of stealth warships ,but if modernised ,they will be of some use .......building new nuclear -powered cruisers is too costly.

    Russia plans to upgrade 3 nuclear-powered cruisers by 2020

    Russia will upgrade and put on active duty three mothballed Soviet-era nuclear-powered missile cruisers by 2020, a high-ranking Navy official told RIA Novosti on Saturday.
    Russia built four Kirov class nuclear-powered cruisers in 1974-1998. One of them, the Pyotr Veliky, is in active service as the flagship of the Northern Fleet.
    "Cruisers Admiral Nakhimov, Admiral Lazarev and Admiral Ushakov will be modernized and returned to the Russian Navy's combat force in 10 years," the official said, adding that their equipment and weapons will be fully modernized.
    The Kirov class heavy cruisers are second in size only to aircraft carriers, and are similar in size to a World War I battleship.
    The Admiral Ushakov (former Kirov) was commissioned in 1980 and suffered a reactor accident in 1990 while serving in the Mediterranean Sea. Repairs reportedly have never been carried out, due to lack of funds and the ensuing collapse the Soviet Union.
    The Admiral Lazarev (former Frunze) was commissioned in 1984 and mothballed in 1998.
    The Admiral Nakhimov (former Kalinin) was commissioned in 1988 and mothballed in 1999. The ship has been reportedly undergoing a major overhaul at the Severodvinsk Shipyard since 2005.
    The Kirov class main weapons include 20 SS-N-19 Shipwreck missiles, designed to engage large surface targets, and air defense is provided by 12 SA-N-6 Grumble launchers with 96 missiles and 2 SA-N-4 Gecko with 40 missiles.
