Looks like India and China have bought two Russian Bangers. China has Varyag a Kuznetsov-class multirole aircraft carrier. She was known as Riga when her keel was laid down at Nikolayev South (formerly Shipyard 444) in Nikolayev 6 December 1985, and she was launched 4 December 1988, but she was renamed Varyag (Varangian) in late 1990, after a famous Russian cruiser.India has Admiral Gorshkov was a modified Kiev class aircraft carrier of the Russian Navy, originally named Baku. Sometimes Gorshkov is considered a separate class due to its improvements including a phased array radar, extensive electronic warfare installations, and an enlarged command and control suite. In 2004, she was sold to India for conversion into a STOBAR carrier to be named INS Vikramaditya.
The Minsk (I think) is parked up in Shenzen, just over the border from Hong Kong and has been for years. I flew past it in a light plane around 2002. My mate, the pilot instructor, was ex Sdn Ldr RAAF/RAF and flew Nimrods (RAF) and MP3 Orion's (RAAF) as well as Shackletons (old fart). I remember him saying 'Do you recognise that?' and me replying 'No, I've only ever been underneath it'.
