France: possible Russia may never get Mistral Class warships
France's defense minister suggested on Friday that two warships ordered by Russia may never be delivered because of its actions in Ukraine.
Last month, President Francois Hollande suspended the delivery of the first of the ships "until further notice" due to tensions over Ukraine. It was the second postponement of the delivery.
Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said in a TV interview Friday that the delivery may never happen if the situation doesn't change.
The sale of the two helicopter carriers would be the biggest arms transaction by a NATO country to the Kremlin. bigstory
