“Rosoboronexport hopes that the terms of the contract will not be altered as the parties’ obligations are legally sealed and failure to fulfill them will inevitably entail retaliatory actions,” the spokesman said.
Rosoboronexport confirmed that France was strictly complying with the schedule for the construction of helicopter carriers and was even seeking to outpace it “which evidences the reliability of the French side as a partner.”
The Rosoboronexport spokesman said Russia had not yet made final payments under the contract.
France is expected to deliver the first Mistral ship to Russia in October while the second Mistral-class helicopter carrier is due to be handed over in 2016. The contract also stipulates an option to build two more amphibious assault ships for Russia.
The 1.12 billion euro contract for the construction of Mistral warships for the Russian Navy was signed in June 2011 in St. Petersburg.
