France will not give up the deal to sell two Mistrals to Russia,
French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said that the deal for the sale of two Mistral-class helicopter carriers to Russia will be completed. According to him, French President Francois Hollande during a meeting with US President Barack Obama in Normandy made it clear that France does not intend to refuse the delivery of Mistrals to Russia, as there is a contract and it must be fulfilled.
Earlier, Obama said he was concerned about the supply of warships against the backdrop of the crisis in Ukraine, although he understands how important contracts are for the employment of French shipbuilders.
The first helicopter carrier is due to be delivered to Russia this year, with the deal valued at € 1,2 billion ($ 1,6 billion). Presumably, it will receive the name "Vladivostok", will become part of the Pacific Fleet and will be stationed in Primorye.
