So France may become the first NATO nation to sell advanced military tech to the Soviets,err I mean Russians.
The French are reportedly considering selling a Mistral class assault ship to Russia. It’s kind of funny since the Ruskies have really done quite well playing their hand in the international arms build ups. That being said this current offer seems to reek of actual and possibly immediate perceived needs on the Russians behalf. The former Soviet vassels be warned.
Oh and for the Russians take on the purchase and potential uses
“We are buyers, you are sellers,” he told his hosts.
“Whoever we buy it from, we will reserve the right to use it where and when we consider necessary.”
