US urges France not to sell the mistral "Vladivostok" of Russia
The BBC Russian Service reports that a group of US congressmen have called on France to refuse to sell two Mistral-class helicopter carriers to Russia, one of which is called Vladivostok. At the same time, politicians offer NATO to buy or lease these ships.
"This will send a powerful signal to President Putin that NATO allies do not intend to tolerate or in any way condone his reckless moves," Reuters quoted a letter from Congressmen to NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen.
French authorities promise to resolve the issue in October.
