Re: Poland to Buy Black Hawks After Dropping Airbus Helicopters
“It is true that the Mistrals were sold to Egypt, and it is true that in recent days they have de facto been transferred to Russia for one dollar. This operation did indeed take place,” Macierewicz said in Polish parliament on Thursday.
Russia ordered two Mistral battleships from France in 2010 for EUR 1.37 bln. In late 2014, French President Francois Hollande announced that France would not be delivering the ships due to Moscow's “recent actions in Ukraine”. The helicopter-carriers were eventually sold to Egypt for around EUR 950 mln. (rg)
