First of all, this is a direct violation of agreements, including the ones achieved in partnership with the United States. I mean the Geneva Declaration from 17 April," said the Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman.''

"NATO's budget is too small to not only purchase Russia-ordered Mistral helicopter carriers, but to even compensate France half of the penalties in accordance with the contract," a military source in Brussels, Belgium told TASS news agency. NATO's military and civilian budget for 2014 amounts $ 1.6 billion, while the penalty for non-delivery of the two Mistral helicopter carriers to Russia could reach $ 3 billion, the source explained.

...

Moreover, NATO simply doesn't have a structure that that could receive the ships. The Alliance has almost no military equipment of its own. So there would be no use in the helicopter carriers even if the money to purchase them is found," the source said.

The idea of buying the Mistral vessels is "absurd from a military point of view" because the ships are "custom-built in accordance with Russian standards, which makes their use by NATO highly problematic and will require additional, expensive refitting," he stressed.
