MOSCOW, February 5 (Itar-Tass) – Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin has explained his earlier pronouncements that Russian-made fuels cannot be used by the helicopter carriers Mistral.
“As a matter of fact, the “news” about fuels for Mistral is not appropriate, my words should have been quoted rather than interpreted,” he wrote in his Twitter microblog late on Tuesday.
“Russia will fulfill its contract liabilities to the French partners on the first two helicopter carriers,” he stressed. “All unexpectedly arising problem issues will be tackled at the Russian-French consultations on military technical cooperation on February 14-15.”
The defence industry commission, according to Rogozin, has asked military and industrial experts to report about the fitness of Mistral systems to Russia’s standards and conditions. After the commission presents such a report, all necessary measures will be taken, including in cooperation with the French partners.
“The decision about the third and fourth Mistral will be taken based on performance of the first two ones reported from the French shipyards,” he added.
