    Quite interestingly, in the second picture, the Admiral Chabanenko, Udaloy II destroyer is under work of some king, maybe retrofit or modernization.

    Ok, it's on Wikipedia that it is in repairs since 2014 and that the repairs will last 3 years, are there any news on some kind of modernization?

    Ruskies said they will give it, Modern cannon, Calibers, Naval S-400 and redo all of the electronics of course if they actually are doing this remains to be seen we have heard them make pretty grand claims before only to see that was not the case.

    It'll spend 5 more years in the yard: http://nvo.ng.ru/nvoevents/2017-08-25/2_962_news.html?print=Y
    Цена модернизации может достигнуть 75% стоимости нового корабля аналогичного класса и составит сумму не менее 10 млрд руб. Решение модернизировать БПК свидетельствует о невозможности сейчас начать строительство кораблей дальней морской зоны. А все разговоры о постройке в обозримом будущем бригадного комплекта фрегатов, соответствующих по тактико-техническим характеристикам «Адмиралу Чабаненко», атомного крейсера «Лидер» и уж тем более авианосца – это разговоры от лукавого.
    Paraphrasing, "the cost is 75% of new ship of the same class, & the fact speaks of impossibility of starting construction of new such frigates in the foreseeable future, & of atomic cruiser Lider, not to mention a/c carrier." Time will tell!

    A lot of unsubstantiated blah-blah in there, as usual. Reading between the lines, I'd guess that the Chabanenko was originally in for repairs, but now they've decided to keep her in longer for a modernisation as she's a relatively new hull (launched 1994, commissioned 1999).

    Repair of the heavy aircraft-carrying cruiser Admiral Kuznetsov will begin in 2018 at the 35th shipyard in Murmansk. ..the work will take at least two years. ..Initially, it was planned that the repair of the aircraft carrying cruiser will begin this year, but it was postponed to 2018. Representatives of the Navy command do not yet disclose the details of the ship's modernization project, but the press reported that the upgrade of "Admiral Kuznetsov" will cost between 40 and 65 billion rubles.

    IMO, 2 years in the yard means the modernization will be extensive & substantial. The USN CVNs spend ~3 years in Refueling Complex Overhaul (RCOH). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Refueling_and_overhaul
    After that, ~1 year will be spent on trials & exercises before it'll be combat ready. Hope they won't need a tug shadowing them next time!
