    Default Pirates Get OWNED By Russian Marines

    This is what more countries need to do to those Somali pirates..Ransom? I think not, motherfuckers..




    Russian marines storm hijacked oil tankerBy the CNN Wire Staff
    May 6, 2010 6:20 a.m. EDT



    (CNN) -- Russian marines have stormed a tanker hijacked by pirates in the Gulf of Aden, freeing its 23 man crew and cargo of oil reported to be worth up to $50 million, naval officials said Thursday.

    None of the crew was injured in the early morning rescue operation by marines from the Marshal Shaposhnikov. The Russian Prosecutor's Office said one pirate was killed and some were wounded. Ten pirates were taken into custody.

    "The Marshal Shaposhnikov was ... fired upon by the pirates holding the ship. The Russian warship ... returned fire," the Eureopean Union's naval force reported.

    "Eventually, the pirates surrendered and a boarding team from the Marshal Shaposhnikov arrived onboard the tanker, captured all the pirates and freed the crew."

    The Russian-operated tanker Moscow University, which sails under the Liberian flag, has a crew of 23. It was on its way to China when pirates hijacked it Wednesday, the naval force said. The ship was carrying an estimated $50 million worth of oil at the time of the attack, according to Russian media.

    The ship's owner credited quick action by the crew at the time of the hijacking for the success of the rescue operation.

    "Due to wise steps taken by the vessel's captain Yuri Tulchinsky and his crew, all the 23 crew members hid in a special room inaccessible to pirates," said Serafima Shukshina, a spokeswoman for the Novorossiysk Shipping Line. "As a result, the pirates failed to take any crew members hostage, and couldn't take control of the ship despite their siege that lasted more than 20 hours."

    Under the Russian law, the captured Somali pirates would face charges of group piracy with the use of violence and weapons, an offense carrying a maximum penalty of up to 15 years in prison, according to Vladimir Markin, a spokesman for the Investigation Committee of the Prosecutor General's Office.

    Farther south off the coast of Tanzania, pirates failed in their attempt Wednesday to hijack a South Korean-flagged vessel, the naval force said. All those on board are reported to be well, it said.

    EU NAVFOR escorts merchant vessels carrying humanitarian aid in the region and protects other vulnerable vessels in the Gulf of Aden and Indian Ocean.

    Pirate attacks are frequent in the Gulf of Aden, which lies between Yemen and Somalia at the northwest corner of the Indian Ocean.

    Put those fuckers in Russian prison, and then make it into a reality TV show.

    Complexity ensues

    Russians release Somali pirates
    The Russian Defense Ministry said Friday it had released a group of Somali pirates who hijacked an oil tanker in the Gulf of Aden this week, the Interfax news agency reported.
    The pirates were released because of "imperfections" in international law, said Alexei Kusnetsov, defense minister.
    Russian marines from the warship Marshal Shaposhnikov stormed the tanker Moscow University on Thursday, freeing its 23 crew members.

    Too bad the Russians only killed one of them. So they get released by the Russians back to Somalia where I'm certain there is a strong justice system that will punish them so as to discourage more pirating [/sarcasm]

    You think a Russian prison is worse than a Somali prison?

    What's the worst that could happen if countries plagued by Somali
    pirates do not adhere to 'international law'?

    Somalia declaring war? Lol. Russians pikes out at the end, what a waste of a job well done by their Marines.

    Panic room meets Under Seige. I smell a blockbuster.

    I'd like to think the Russians released them so they could spread their tales of woe about the time they had to go against the Ruskies.

    Around 20 US soldiers died, but I think the Somalis took a leeeetle bit more of a beating in that one...
