The example of the refusal of France to execute the contract with Russia for the purchase of "Mistral" have the opportunity to apply in the future in the analysis of individual negotiating partners, said the head of the Ministry of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation S. Lavrov In..
the contract for production and delivery of 2 helicopter carrier type "Mistral" cost 1, 2 billion Euro was concluded between the French DCNS/STX and the "Rosoboronexport" in 2011. France had to give 1st ship "Vladivostok" in November last year, but due to the events in Ukraine and the imposition of sanctions against Russia that never was. In early August, Moscow and Paris adopted a conclusion on termination of validity of the contract for the construction and supply of 2 ships-docks-type " Mistral ".
France after the return of the Russian equipment installed on the " Mistral ", will be able to dispose of the helicopter. First it was claimed that the head of the French Republic Francois Hollande reached an agreement with its Egyptian counterpart Abdel Fattah al-Sisi under the terms of the sale 2 destined for the Russian Federation helicopter type " Mistral ".
"Maybe in the future someone will pay attention to this Example, As a factor which must be taken into account when agreeing with someone about something, how negotiability will be provided," - said Lavrov.
As said Lavrov, not known, not wanted France from the contract under pressure from a third party." I don't know why it was, and what were the contacts between our French colleagues and anyone else from those countries that have most loudly demanded a halt to all military cooperation with Russia, without giving any intelligible arguments, " he said.
