Russia’s navy is one step closer to getting Mistral helicopter carriers, after a purchase agreement was signed yesterday in the presence of Russian Vice PM Igor Sechin and French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

According to the agreement, French companies DCNS and STX and Russia’s United Shipbuilding Corporation are to construct two helicopter carriers priced at 400-450 million euro each.

And the construction contract is expected to be signed later this year, Komsomolskaya Pravda reported.
