ST PETERSBURG, June 20 (Itar-Tass) - Reports saying the stern is not ready for the Mistral helicopter carrier do not correspond to reality, Russian Vice-Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said.

On Wednesday, Rogozin visited the Baltic Shipyard, which was being built the stern for the Mistral.

“We exercise tough control over the construction, the assembly and the handover of the Mistral stern, which is being built by the Baltic Shipyard,” the vice-prime minister said.

He said the stern would be launched on July 4 and left for France on the pontoon. After the launch the second part of the hull will be laid. The work will be finished in June 2014, Rogozin said.

In his words, “we can talk about continuing the Mistral series after two ships are tested and after seamen’s views are listened to.”
