ST.PETERSBURG, June 26 (Itar-Tass) - According to the Russo-French contract on the construction of two Mistral type helicopter transporting amphibious assault ships for the Russian Navy, the stern portion of the first helicopter carrier "Vladivostok" was put afloat in St.Petersburg on Wednesday, spokesman for the Joint Shipbuilding Corporation Alexei Kravchenko told Itar-Tass.
"The Baltic Shipyard has set afloat the stern portion of the first helicopter carrier in St.Petersburg," the spokesman said. "The Baltic Shipyard fulfills its contract obligations in full despite annoying problems such as a number of inaccuracies in the design documentation provided by the French partners," the spokesman said.
On July 4 the stern portion of the helicopter carrier will be sent to the French Shipyard in Saint Nazaire to be docked with the other part of the ship which was built in France, Kravchenko said.
