The US Department of State has approved the statement of the French President about lack of conditions for transferring «Mistral» to Russia. The whole industry and business reputation of the country can fall as victim of American ambitions: in case of failure of the contract the France will have to pay billions of dollars in fines.
Just two weeks ago the French President Francois Hollande said: «nothing can stop France to perform the contract for the supply of Russia by two helicopter carriers Mistral» It looks like the US has achieved the success after a long pressure on France to prevent the deal with «Mistral» that can’t be said about China which categorically refused to support the US in sanctions against Russia.
Who will lose more in this case? America? – No. Russia? – They will order helicopter carriers in other place. France? – Bingo!
