RMS Titanic and their salvage teams

Why did RMS Titanic use the Russian Academy of sciences rather than Ifremer for their last salvage trip? Three explanations jump to mind:
a) Costs were less
b) Two subs means more recovery
c) Ifremer were angry about George Tulloch being ousted.

Which one(s) - or any! of these are right?

Thanks

Geller claimed that the French were booked already. Others closer to the French claim your reason number three. Either way, one and two are true.
