Hollande said in Newport Friday the French government’s compliance with the terms of the agreement on Mistrals would depend on the effectuation of the ceasefire agreement, which the representatives of the Kiev government and leaders of the East-Ukrainian self-defense forces signed in the Belarusian capital earlier in the day.
Another condition for the supplies of the Mistrals specified by Hollande is a political agreement among the parties involved in the Ukrainian conflict.
