“We have a concrete deadline. Further issues include completing the
construction [of the ship] and fitting it with weapons and communication
equipment. It will be done at our shipyards, including the Severnaya
Verf [Northern Shipyard]. We will launch this work this year. The year
of 2015 is the year of transfer. The entire project is hinged on this
schedule,” he told the Ekho Moskvy radio station on Monday, July 28.

As far as the construction of the helicopter carrier’s frame is
concerned, Russian specialists “completed everything on time this year –
the second stern section,” he said.

Rakhmanov said he does not think that France may backtrack on its contractual obligations concerning the Mistral project.
