The most powerful nuclear-powered icebreaker in the world began to be built in the Primorsky Territory at the Zvezda shipyard. The flagship icebreaker of the Leader project was given the name "Russia".

According to the press service of the government of Primorye, this icebreaker has no analogues in the world. He will be able to provide year-round pilotage of the commercial fleet along the Northern Sea Route. The completion of the icebreaker is scheduled for 2027.

According to the Governor of the Territory Oleg Kozhemyako, development of the Far North, Arctic oil and gas fields is impossible without such vessels. Vessels of this series will be able to supply fish products to the regions of Russia and Europe.

The vessel will be able to overcome ice more than 4 meters thick and lay a channel about 50 meters wide, which will ensure year-round navigation of large-capacity transport vessels and gas carriers along the Northern Sea Route.

Contract for the construction of the "Leader" was signed between SSK Zvezda and FSUE Atomflot in April. The state customer of the icebreaker is the state corporation Rosatom.

The Russian government will allocate in 2020-2027 127,5 billion for the construction of the atomic icebreaker "Leader". The decision on this before leaving the post of prime minister was signed by Dmitry Medvedev.
