They would need to deal with the fact when the reactor cracked, it started to leak they never fixed or cleaned it up just parked it there and left it.
there are numerous reports of radiation emitting from this vessel in a dangerous manner, even the mayor of a nearby town said it's posing a problem to them.
That would take a very long time to clean up, and it would take years for the radiation to die down. The Hull is dead, why they haven't removed this hazard I don't know.
You're talking about the Adm Ushakov (ex-Kirov), not the Lazarev. She's most likely beyond repair now due to cost.
Numerous reports.... even the major said... yeah well, we all know people talk shit and others echo the shit if it suits them. Lazarev went into dry dock ~5 years ago (exact date?) and they wouldn't have cleaned and repainted her hull and superstructure if she was a useless hulk. Dunno what their long term plans are, but i wouldn't 100% rule out a future modernisation for the Lazarev after PtG is rebuilt.
