The French Minister of Foreign Affairs Laurent Fabius threatened Russia with a military response to the Crimea actions and with termination of the Mistral contract. "After a certain limit there will be a reaction, including the force one. We cannot allow them to do everything. As a first measure, France may terminate the contract with Russia for the supply of two Mistral ships being under construction in Saint-Nazaire. If Putin continue following his strategy, we can cancel these supplies," added the Minister. Also, Fabius offered to freeze the assets of the Russian major businessmen in Great Britain.
