"At the moment, we have no information pertaining to the inquiry. There may be some information later," the source said.
Earlier in the day, a high-ranking official from the Russian Defense Ministry's Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation told RIA Novosti that Moscow has sent an official inquiry concerning the reasons of the Mistral non-delivery.
The Military-Technical Cooperation group official stated that to proceed with the issue, either by taking the case to court or giving France more time, Moscow requires a written explanation of the current situation.
In early January, French Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said France would deliver the Mistral ships to Russia once a ceasefire in eastern Ukraine was observed and a political roadmap for a permanent settlement to the conflict was implemented.
Moscow has denied its involvement in the Ukrainian crisis and warned Paris of large penalties should France fail to deliver on its contractual obligations.
