France, Russia negotiating solution to frozen warship deal: Hollande

The Sevastopol mistral warship is on its way for its first sea trials, on March 16, 2015 off Saint-NazaireFrench President Francois Hollande said Sunday that negotiations with Moscow were under way to find a solution to a dispute over the sale of two Mistral warships, frozen over the Ukraine crisis. The delivery of the first warship has been suspended for six months over Russia’s role in the Ukraine conflict, straining ties between Paris and Moscow. Russian President Vladimir Putin last week dismissed the refusal to deliver the ship, but said he expects France to repay the money paid. If it breaches the contract with Russia it faces hefty fines.
