Russian President Vladimir Putin and French President Francois Hollande did not bring up the issue of the delivery of Mistral helicopter carriers to Russia while meeting on the sidelines of a G20 summit in Brisbane.

"The deliveries of the Mistral were not discussed," a source with the Russian delegation told Interfax.

Kremlin press secretary Dmitry Peskov had said earlier that the crisis in Ukraine had dominated the agenda of the conversation between Putin and Hollande.

The two presidents mentioned the importance of historical multifaceted Russian-French relations and "underscored that the heads of state are determined to do everything necessary so that the crisis situation in southeastern Ukraine should not cast a shadow on them."

Putin once again offered his sincere condolences on the death of Total CEO Christophe de Margerie, Peskov said.
