Russian President Vladimir Putin speaks during a flag raising ceremony aboard the newly built Project 22600 diesel-electric icebreaker Viktor Chernomyrdin moored at the Marine Facade passenger port, in St. Petersburg, Russia. A power capacity of 25MW, the vessel was ordered by Rosmorport and laid down in December 2012 at the Admiralty Shipyard, subsidiary of United Shipbuilding Corporation. Intended for use on the Northern Sea Route, Viktor Chernomyrdin is designed as one of the world's highest-powered non-nuclear icebreakers.
