France wants to sell warships to Russia — RT Business

Despite the Mistral debacle French President Francois Hollande says he expects to sell new warships to Russia in the future, Associated Press reported. His suggestion comes less than two months after France cancelled a deal to deliver two Mistral helicopter carriers to Russia.

"Things went well with Russia, which has agreed to cancel the contract. And I even think we'll get partnerships for new ships," Hollande was cited as saying on Tuesday during a visit to the Saint-Nazaire shipyard in western France.
