(PARIS) -- As the Ukraine situation continues to fester, France has decided to suspend the delivery of a warship to Russia.
Until further notice, the first of two warships will remain in a French port and will not be handed over to the Russians.
A statement from President Hollande's office stops short of cancelling the deal. At stake is thousands of jobs and a contract worth more than $1.25 billion.
