People hold signs and Ukrainian national flag during a rally in front of the French embassy in Kiev over the possible sale of two Mistral helicopter carriers to Russia by France, in Kiev, Ukraine, yesterday. According to various media reports, France, which signed a deal with Russia in 2011 on the sale of the ships, has been urged to sell the warships to NATO instead, in light of the ongoing crisis gripping Ukraine.
