Russia and Egypt have set consultations on the purchase and management of a $1 billion worth communication system and Ka-52K helicopters for Mistral-type warships.
The negotiations with Egypt took place, consultations with the country are in process. “They have expressed a desire to acquire Russian equipment, including helicopters,” Kremlin chief of staff Sergei Ivanov a high-ranking official in the Russian Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC) said on Monday.
In October, Egypt and France signed a contract to buy two French-made Mistral-class helicopter carriers originally built for Russia.
Egypt emerged as France’s replacement customer for the Mistrals in September, following the Paris and Moscow’s termination of a 2011 deal on construction and delivery of the two ships.
In November 2014, France had suspended the contract, citing Moscow's alleged participation in the Ukrainian conflict as a reason to terminate the deal.
The Russian equipment for the Mistrals is due to be returned to Moscow by November 21.
Russia has planned to deliver Ivan Khurs communications ship to its navy in December 2016 to monitor US missile defense systems. "The Ivan Khurs communications ship is planned to be launched in the second quarter of 2016… Shipbuilders intend to pass the communications ship to the Russian Navy in December 2016," a spokesperson of Severnaya Verf shipyard said Friday
