French President Francois Hollande said on Wednesday he would broach all aspects of a frozen deal to sell Mistral helicopter carriers to Russia when he meets Vladimir Putin later this week but that a delivery was not possible in current conditions.

Hollande was speaking after a Paris meeting with Ukraine leader Petro Poroshenko. Paris suspended the Mistral sale after Europe decided to impose sanctions against Russia over the conflict in neighboring Ukraine.
