According to a spokesman from Rostec's United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation, Russian radio and electronic equipment stripped from the Mistral-class helicopter carriers that were not delivered by France to Russia has been returned to the Russian Navy.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The Russian radio and electronic equipment stripped from the Mistral-class helicopter carriers that were not delivered by France to Russia has been returned to the Russian Navy, a spokesman from Rostec's United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation said Monday.

'[The equipment] has been taken from France and given to the Russian fleet to use and train sailors,' the spokesman said.

Moscow and Paris officially terminated the $1.3-billion contract on the delivery of the warships in August. Moscow has received some $1 billion in compensation.

Cairo and Paris signed a contract in October for the purchase of two French-made Mistral-class helicopter carriers originally built for Russia.
