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.

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.

"We are satisfied with How everything was resolved. No second thoughts here do not have ", - said Lavrov.

We have stated that we will not attempt to change this decision, to dissuade France from what it has announced. Asked for money back, and We took the money in full, As for what We actually paid to French partners and for what We spent on the construction of the parts of these parts of the helicopter on their cords and staff training " - said Lavrov.
As said the Russian head of the Ministry, " We have No hard feelings, No disappointments - We made very good money, and they are currently not an extra "." in regard to us, the matter is closed, " drew attention Lavrov.
