PARIS (Sputnik) — Egypt emerged as France’s replacement customer for Mistrals in September 2015 after Moscow and Paris had terminated the $1.3-billion contract in August as Paris accused Moscow of alleged participation in the internal conflict in Ukraine.

Russia received around $1 billion in compensation for the unfulfilled deal.
