"We have been building the largest dry dock in Russia that could be used for the construction of the Leader nuclear icebreaker," he said.

"The company has begun the necessary paperwork to obtain a nuclear shipbuilding license, so after the dry dock is ready, it will be the only enterprise in Russia capable of building the Leader nuclear icebreaker," Tseluiko added.

According to the director general, it will take around one month and a half to obtain the license.
