He wanted to commission one Mistral each for the Black sea fleet and the Baltic fleet,
The Mistrals are too big for the Black and Baltic seas... they would serve no purpose in either area except antagonise the locals.
Any further problems with Georgia can easily be dealt with using the forces moved into the region after the conflict... instead of facing lightly armed paratroopers, they now face much much better armed paratroopers who likely want revenge for what Georgia did to their comrades... and there will be plenty of volunteers in North Ossetia and Chechnia and Dagestan to go back in and deal with Saakashvili if the need or opportunity ever came up again.
while the second two (which are to be built in Russia) would be commissioned to the Pacific Fleet.
The French made vessels could be fitted with all sorts of sneaky stuff like hidden kill switches or beacons that are remotely activated... it makes sense to base them as far away from France as possible.
There are only two places a Mistral class carrier would be of use to the Russian navy and that is in the Pacific fleet to protect the Kurile islands and also operate in the Pacific in the smaller islands to help locals by providing access to its state of the art medical facilities during peace time, and aide during a disaster with helicopters and trucks to deliver aide and perform rescues.
The other place is the Northern Fleet to protect the potential oil resources on the Russian north shelf.
The Kuznetsov would be with the Northern Fleet. In time, he also wanted for two or three new heavy carriers (revamped modern versions of the Ulyanovsk class), to be built to supplement and eventually replace the Kuznetsov. He reckoned that this would create a new carrier force, instead of recreating an old force.
By rebuilding the Ulyanovsk class carriers are you not recreating an old force?
The new carriers don't need to look anything like US or western carriers and could be fairly exotic in design.
A double hull vessel would allow massive internal space without being too long and with two flattops could allow continuous take off and landing operations from each deck for example.
