MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, Macierewicz said that Egypt had resold the two Mistral warships to Russia for the symbolic price of $1.
"How can we comment on this [statement], if we know that Egypt is in talks with Russia on purchase of military equipment for the Mistrals? How Egypt could sell them for $1?" Ayman Mousa told RIA Novosti.
He added that such statements had nothing in common with the real state of affairs.
On Tuesday, Anatoly Punchuk, deputy director of the Russian Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC) said that Egypt had appealed to Russia to supply Ka-52 helicopters (NATO reporting name: Hokum B) for the Mistrals.
