Maria Zakharova certainly knows physical principles of boomerang and reacting to Australia "choosing" US-British nuclear subs instead of French diesel ones and we are talking about gigantic multi-billion dollar contract.
МОСКВА, 16 сен — РИА Новости. Официальный представитель МИД России Мария Захарова, комментируя разрыв контракта между Австралией и Францией на создание подлодок, напомнила Парижу об их решении в ситуации с производством авианосцев "Мистраль".
Translation: MOSCOW, September 16 - RIA Novosti. The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova, commenting on the breaking the contract between Australia and France for submarines, reminded Paris of their decision in the situation with the production of the Mistral aircraft carriers.
Ah, the karma, what a bitch. Thankfully, Russia never got her Mistrals and that was a huge blessing in disguise, but then again, as I state in my video, it is about both shrinking financial pie of the combined West and about dropping non Anglo-Saxon "ally" of France in favor of the increase of the "cohesion" of Anglo-Saxondom in a face of a lot of geopolitical centrifugal forces exacerbated by the Washington's desire to "counter" China.
Now French complain:
France's foreign minister has spoken of his "anger" and "bitterness" and has criticized the US and Britain, after the allies agreed a deal to supply nuclear submarines to Australia, undoing Paris' $40-billion deal for French subs. "I am angry and bitter. This isn't done between allies," Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian told franceinfo radio on Thursday morning, after the leaders of Australia, the UK and US convened a virtual press conference on Wednesday night, announcing the AUKUS pact and the delivery of conventionally-armed nuclear-power submarines to Canberra.The delivery of the nuclear subs under the AUKUS (Australia, UK, US) pact means Canberra will scrap a 2016 deal with French firm Naval Group to upgrade its fleet with more diesel submarines. The scrapped deal was reportedly worth $40 billion."This brutal, unilateral and unpredictable decision reminds me a lot of what Mr Trump used to do," Le Drian stated. He also took aim at Canberra, "it's a stab in the back. We created a relationship of trust with Australia and that trust has been broken."
