France does not plan to terminate military contracts with Russia

96
French President Francois Hollande, answering journalists' questions following the EU summit on the situation in Ukraine, said that the agreement to sell two Mistral-type ships to the Russian Federation was not suspended.


"France is in compliance with the provisions of the signed contracts. We are not yet at the stage when we need to cancel them, and we would like to avoid it," said ITAR-TASS, quoting Francois Hollande.

The French president also said that the European Union is not currently considering the issue of imposing an arms embargo on Russia. “The measures [of a sanction nature] are of a phased nature. There are those that are taken immediately, and this was done by the EU Foreign Affairs Council, and those that the European Council approved for implementation. These measures can be terminated if the path of dialogue is resumed”, - he said, answering the question about the prospects of the EU arms embargo against Russia.

As it was reported, on Thursday, March 6, in Brussels, they were arguing all day about what sanctions to hit Russia, but didn’t really think of anything, except, perhaps, that the negotiations on visas and the new partnership agreement were suspended, the Russia 24 TV channel reminds ". So the threat to introduce some sanctions remained threats.

In principle, they could introduce sanctions, but only theoretically. Practically for this, it was necessary to secure unanimity on this issue of all EU countries, but two problems arose. Firstly, as it turned out, not all in the EU share the accusations against Russia, and not everyone believes that it is necessary to support the Kiev self-proclaimed authorities.

Mistral class ships are universal amphibious assault carriers. In service with the French Navy are three such ships. "Mistral" can perform the tasks of landing troops on land, take helicopters. It can be a command center and a floating hospital. The ship can accommodate troops numbering 450 people and 16 heavy helicopters, which are provided for the hangar.

The length of the ship's hull is 199 meters, its full displacement exceeds 21 thousand tons. "Mistral" is equipped with diesel engines with a capacity of more than 20 thousands of horsepower, which allow it to reach speeds up to 19 units. Ships of this class have anti-aircraft and rocket weapons.

In December 2010, Russia and France signed a contract, according to which our country buys two such ships. The deal amounted to 1 billion 100 million euros. Two more Mistral are to be built at the Baltic Shipyard under license. The first ship may become part of the Russian Pacific fleet already this year, it is called "Vladivostok".

          In the fight, all means are good.
          Result:
          MOSCOW, March 7, RIA FederalPress. Arrangements for the delivery of two French Mistral helicopter carriers to the Russian Navy remain in force. This statement was made by French President Francois Hollande.

          France complies with the agreements it has signed and would like to avoid a state of affairs in which it is necessary to break the agreements, cites Hollande’s words “Lenta.ru”. EU countries have so far agreed on soft sanctions against Moscow.

            Frankly, and I thought so. If you have your own achievements and projects, then why the Mistral? But later he changed his mind a little. This is the same technology. Similarly with IVECO. Although there is somewhat worse with this. Like Russia, 2 pieces of aircraft does not sell to China, unprofitable. smile

              At the expense of Mistralek - the French immediately realized that the name "Sevastopol" was not given for nothing to the ship under construction - after all, logically, it should have been "Novorossiysk" - but strange Russians do nothing just like that ...

          The paths of the Lord are inscrutable ... Now the warlike frogmen with two hands rest against the imposition of sanctions against Russia at the EU summit.

          "The leaders of Germany, France, Spain and Italy are definitely against the application of sanctions against RussiaAt the same time, in words, they take a very tough stance with regard to Russia's actions, but at the level of actions, it is they who are still hindering the process "

          At the same time, the countries of Central and Eastern Europe strongly support sanctions.
          EU sanctions against Russia are opposed by Germany, France, Spain and Italy

                Syavka has nothing to lose. So they are yapping. And the campaign, they make money on it.

                Yet again. In Europe, only we and the Germans fought as an adult, because we can do it.
                So it’s clear who needs to be negotiated with,
                to be at war on one side of the front line ...

        There is an initial contract for the amount of 1.2 billion euros. And what a penalty is scary to think. And contracts for thermal imaging cameras, inertial guidance systems. Onboard equipment for the SU-30 supplied to India. The French want to buy Krasnopol from us. There are many links to helicopters and maritime topics. For a long time there has been cooperation in space, especially on satellites for various purposes ... So everything will not be so smooth if, under pressure from the United States, they abandon all projects. They themselves will lose more.

            Vladivostok is already at sea. It makes a test exit from the French port of Saint-Nazaire. If there is an embargo, the French are left with an unnecessary box without weapons, especially since the feed is made at the Baltic plant and the bow is in Saint-Nazaire (if not messed up) and it joins there.
            And if we refuse to launch French Helios (satellites of view reconnaissance) by Protons from Baikonur and Unions with Kuru, then they will scratch their heads ... Hollande knows about this. The launch of the Union through a joint venture between Starsem and Kuru will cost 20 million euros, and with the help of Ariane-5, more than 100 million euros. Then let the Earth's rotation be launched from Palmachim in the opposite direction ... Cheap and angry! Even if we laugh at the Great Space Powers! Moreover, the Israeli rocketry has French roots.

      Today, the introduction of sanctions from the West is required not only by the Communists, but also part of the business. Then entire sectors of the economy will revive, the infrastructure will improve, and in general Russia will become richer. All this is now slowing down. But with the introduction of sanctions, there is a chance to really turn the national economy towards the West with its tail, and face people

After all the necessary procedures, it will not be rams, as you wish to express yourself, but the seamen of the Russian Navy - there are no options. And if you consider them rams, then this is a big mistake.

    France does not plan to terminate military contracts with Russia
    Today, 10: 45
    France has no plans to terminate military contracts with Russia. French President François Hollande, answering journalists' questions following the EU summit on the situation in Ukraine, said that the agreement on the sale of two Mistral-class ships to the Russian Federation had not been suspended.

    This is the whole of Hollande. He is ahead of the Anglo-Saxons for sanctions and at the same time squeaks from the desire to sell us his "mistrals", which we (well, except for Tolik Serdyukov) don’t need. Even the French p.r.os.t.t.u. and are much more decent.

    A little off topic!
    I don’t know what is there and how France is, but Canada is already boring!

    Canada expels Russian troops, reports CTV News. We are talking about nine military men - one of them taught Russian to Canadian colleagues, eight of them underwent language training.

    A source in the government confirmed that the military was informed of the decision, they have 24 hours to leave Canada.

    The reason for the decision of Ottawa is called the policy of Moscow in the Crimean issue.

    The Canadian authorities were among the first to condemn Russia's decision to send troops to Crimea. On 1 in March, the Federation Council supported the proposal of President Vladimir Putin to introduce the Russian army to the peninsula before the settlement of the political conflict.

    The day before, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced that all planned bilateral activities between the Canadian armed forces and the Russian army were suspended. He added that the Canadian government does not recognize the results of the referendum in Crimea on joining Russia, because the region "is currently under illegal military occupation."

    Speaking of Canada’s actions in relation to Russia.
    Just looked, it turns out exports from Canada to Russia are 3 times more than from Russia to Canada.
    This is where you need to look - how competently and it can even be beneficial for Russia to replace Canadian manufacturers with others that are more loyal to Russia.
    And to do it loudly and so that it would be clear to everyone that this is not accidental, but connected with the squeals and actions of Canada itself.
    As there in the song of Vysotsky sings "There are few real violent."

    As some smart people said: "Only fools and crazy people refuse money ... And even then, not always." Well, you can make it with visas and other bureaucracy, for a month. And there again everything will return to its own circle.
    I liked the Canadians even more. They sent our officers out, refused to participate in the G8 ... "and what could be wrong with that?", And there are no more thoughts.
    This fuss of the States and Europe reminds me more of a childish rhyme:
    You are no longer my friend
    And do not pee in my pot.
    Take your toys
    And go to your girlfriend.
    Mom will buy me a goat

    In the late seventies, Germany succumbed to the persuasion of the United States and imposed an embargo on the supply of large-diameter pipes to the USSR, as a result, the Soviet Union launched the production of its own pipes, and the United States did not pay the promised money to Germany for embargo damage, since then Germany has not been involved in such scams.

    This is the same technology. Similarly with IVECO.

    There has already been an article on this topic, and as it turns out, the receipt of Western technologies, announced by Storetkin, together with Mistral, turned out to be LIPOY! An excerpt from the article - “it was asserted that Russia would be given not only modern systems, in particular, the SENIT-9 BIUS and the SIC-21 command control system, but also the related technologies associated with them. However, in reality, it turned out that all these promises turned into bubble." And this is not the first time that we are NOT LET'S LOOK at Western technologies (Remember our anticipated purchase of Opel, which the Americans did not allow. And Taburetkin and Co knew about this, but it seems that they had to make a purchase behind a talk shop about technologies techniques - all the signs of a SAW operation!

    UDC - at present these are the ships that all developed countries pay close attention to and we are not the only ones who buy them, construction technologies are the main thing, and even free capacities in shipbuilding, we are our scrap metal .... There will be capacities, we will sculpt our technologies, we will come up with a new one, and now ... "Mistrals" with "our stuffing" will show themselves if something happens. And in general, the UDC is an intermediate link, so to speak, a small helicopter carrier (even an aircraft carrier, like the Australian "Canberra). In general, it is too early to find fault with something that has not yet been seen in business, the future (operation) will still show both the weak and strong sides of the deal ...

    In vain you rejoice, and even more so justify Serdyukov, who committed this idiotic deal. After the adoption of Crimea as part of the Russian Federation, France may freeze the deal, and we will not receive the ships or billions that have already been paid for them. This is the most powerful lever of pressure on Russia, much more tangible than all other possible EU sanctions combined. And France in this regard will not have any remorse if the arms embargo against Russia is adopted in the EU. Like we are forced to obey the decision of Brussels. And these ships, built with Russian money, will enter the French fleet. Those. there will be a similar situation with the S-300, which we did not sell to Iran, in connection with the UN sanctions, with the only difference being that the Iranians did not manage to pay for the delivery.
