Tomorrow France and Russia will sign an agreement on the construction of two warships Mistral-class

On Tuesday, January 25, 2011, France and Russia will finally sign the long-awaited agreement on the construction of two Mistral class warships. This is officially reported by the Elysee Palace. The ceremony will take place in the presence of French President Nicolas Sarkozy and Russian Deputy Prime Minister Igor Sechin at Saint-Nazaire in the west of France.

In December last year, Paris and Moscow, after lengthy negotiations, announced the achievement of consensus in the agreement on ships of the Mistral class. According to the parties, this will be an unprecedented project of the commonwealth, which will contribute to the development of industry and the resolution of employment problems in the defense industry. At the initial stage, two landing helicopter carriers of dock ships of the Mistral class are planned to be built, with the subsequent creation of two more. The work is entrusted to a specially established general consortium in which the Russian side is represented by the United Shipbuilding Company and the French side by the DCNS enterprise.
