France has suspended delivery of a high-tech Mistral warship to Russia over the Ukraine conflict. Moscow says it will not take legal action “for the moment”.
Poland said on Monday that the possibility that France could supply Russia with a Mistral warship makes it difficult for Warsaw to opt for French missile shields.
France was decided not to deliver the first of two helicopter carriers to Russia for now because of Moscow's actions in eastern Ukraine, the French president's office said on Wednesday.
Russia said on Tuesday it will not pay for the Mistral warships that France is building until both ships have been delivered.
