France Cancels Deal to Sell Chopper Carriers to Russia


France’s President, Francois Hollande, announced that the deal to sell helicopter carriers to Russia has been halted in light of Moscow’s activity in the Ukraine.

“The French President does not view it possible to continue with the proceedings so long as there is no ceasefire in the Ukraine and so long as Russia continues its activity in the country,” a statement from the Presidential Palace in Paris read.
