SOMALIA: Russia executed all Somali pirates – spokesman

BOSASSO — A pirate spokesman, who wished to remain anonymous, contacted Somalilandpress today said at least ten of his men were executed by the Russian navy after the troopers stormed MV Moscow University.

“The Russians commandos stormed the ship before sunrise, starting a firefight with our men, onboard they injured three of them and one was killed,” he said.

He dismissed the Russian navy statement that the men were released because of “the absence of a legal base to carry out prosecution procedures against pirates”.

“The Russians never released the young men instead they shot them point-blank range then loaded their lifeless bodies back on the boat,” he added.

The spokesman condemned the action of the Russian navy “our men never hurt their hostages, we simply want foreign ships to stop overfishing in our waters, if they are not happy to respect our-fishermen and their livelihood, we have no choice but to take hostage to compensate for the losses,” he cited.

“We condemn the action of the Russians, it’s driven by racism and hate for black people and Africa, it’s the face of the new Russia. In future, if we capture Russians they will meet the same fate as those they executed,” he added.

Meanwhile, many Somalis were angered by Somalia’s ambassador to Moscow, Mohamed Handule’s statement, who backed the Russian navy denying that the Russian destroyer Marshal Shaposhnikov has not acted inappropriately. They requested an investigation and the immediate replacement of Mr. Handule.

“Not one Somali or the government of our country sees Russia has being guilty in this,” Mr. Handule told ITAR-TASS news agency.

On the 6th May, eleven Somali pirates hijacked the Liberian-flagged Russian oil tanker, MV Moscow University, carrying 86,000 tonnes of crude oil worth $US52 million in the Gulf of Aden. The anti-submarine destroyer Marshal Shaposhnikov was notified and dispatched a helicopter which disrupted the pirates while commandos on speed boats stormed the tanker. The Russians have killed all eleven pirates and have destroyed their boats according to the pirate spokesman.

There are reports, Somali pirates still hold 23 foreign ships and 384 sailors in Somalia. Meanwhile, a conference co-sponsored by the United Nation and the Turkish government designed to address the piracy, stability and Somalia’s security will be hosted in Istanbul from 21st-23rd of May.

        It's pretty reasonable to search a small obviously pirate boat trying to board you 350 nm off the coast, full of AKs and RPGs.

        US law doesn't apply here, son. All pirates shall be shot on the spot, regardless of the state of the ship and the crew. And this comes from a liberal Democrat.

      I'm with you Tom.Any pirates are fair game just as they view everyones ships and crews.Standard rule should be to kill all pirates and send them to the bottom of the sea with their boats.
      Do not waste a nickel in bringing these people back for any kind of trial.
      Pirating is an old school practice, it needs to be matched with the old school practice in the fate they receive when caught.

    That Russian ship, Mv, was properly making $50,000 on that oil deal its too much for Moscow they are afraid they might go back to the starving communist days, they are still poor and corrupted and only few control the little natural gas and oil weath. The rest live on bribing and killing others or blackmailing neighboring states such as Georgia and Poland.

    They are lossers and communist.

    • Coon

      Ha-ha-ha!!! Rare stupid comment!

    • Orema

      You are saying "communist" like it is a bad thing.

    • Dammie

      Confirmed!
      Bribing and corruption is a best bussiness in Russia.
      Even the president and premier are included and do not reject this fact.

      Hey, fella, you have no idea what you are writing about. Come to Russia to see how wrong you are ( if you ever have a chance to see Moscow you will be stuned). But until then, I will call you a poor ignorant man.

  • Seaman

    If Russian did so, My applause. May be they will understood what is easy money.

    • Farax

      Sick twisted cont.

  • Kamarov

    If your countries boat was taken over and the pirates got into a fire fight with your commandoes, you would have killed them too. Congrats to the Russians. Maybe the Pirates should stop stealing ships. or Trying too, Pathetic attempts.

    • Kayse

      Not when they were apparended and disarmed, this is called massacre not war even when you take a POW you dont behave like this. I guess Russians never heard of something called Geneva Convention or Rules of Engagement (ROE). I suggest you guys to stop living in the Communist era and read books.

      Everyone else in the world followers rules and systems not the Russians. Too much vodka.

      The French are the most successfull anti-pirate forces in the region and they always act human and civil.

      Russians are just uncivilized and intoxicated by vodka.

      • Gotwsyvm

        The French loose way more money in soft military actions/presence against pirates than what they loose with the hijacked ships…
        The Russian way is the most cost-effective

      • Theisos

        "Everyone else in the world follows rules and systems…"

        Really? The last Superpower on this planet (U.S. America) acts no differently than the former Superpower that is Russia. Your comment would be indicative of less ignorance if you acknowledged that those with power do what they please. There is no international body strong enough to control the actions of the powerful because people like you are drowning in ignorance; unable to rise up enough to challenge them all.

      • Driver

        Geneva Convention defines how to deal with solgiers. Pirates are not solgiers, as a such. So, Kayse, read books.

        • Kayse

          Americans are way ahead and civil than the Russians and who said Russians are super power? You only have few rusted nukes so does Pakistan, North Korea and possibly Iran.

          It is an insult to compare USA with Vodkasia (Russia).

          Everyone will agree and watch our the Western media and intellectuals all attack Russia over this incident now because its just uncivil and shows Russia doesnt have legal system, every thing is by AK47 and Vodka bottle.

          • driver

            Kayse, what you talk is unlawful, it calls racism. You do not have any real knowledge of Russia. At all. What you write is a propaganda. For example: Finland and Poland are highly drinking countries. Btw, I think your roots are in one of these countries. And do not say "our western", just because not everyone on west agree with you.

        I don't believe that the crass generalization of the Russian people was necessary, although I do believe you are right in your statements about Geneva Convention and ROE.

        hah, you think the americans dont act like this in afghanistan and iraq?

  • Ali Deere

    Did you hear the one about Russian navy stealing from Yemeni fishermen? The Russians stripped the fishermen to their underwears, stole all their belongings and destroyed their fishing boats.

    The Russian navy are no different to the so called Somali navy. They are both poor, undisplined and pirates.

    • driver

      Yes, it is national hobby of russian navy to catch yemeni yebeni fishermen, undress them fully and stole their underwear. They do that because they like to see nude yemeni fishermen in their boats. On this particular reason all yemeni fishermen are naked already by this moment.

      LOL. you are truly pathetic.

  • Polovin

    Its fair. Eye for an eye!

  • Mo-yare

    hahaha Russians are joke they properly thought those Somalis were black vodka, they properly drunk their blood and threw their corpes in the ocean.

    Never trust a Russian they are the scavengers of Europe/Asia, whatever they are.

    They ate so many people in East Europe and Russia will never be accepted as a European nation. They are worse than pirates at least pirates dont drink the blood of their hostages they simply demand cash and free them, feed them.

    However the ones who captured the chandlers are properly black Russians.

    Animals!

    • sefv

      when people trying to abuse someone, they usually talk about themselves, you bloodthirsty human-eating mokey

    • SGP

      These are words of an irresponsible person reasoning like an animal himself. You can splutter with rage as long as you wish, but no doubt this is a good lesson to all who want to profit from the abominable crime of piracy and hostage taking. You break the law – you should no longer expect to be protected by the law. Now no sensless remarks about "racism" will help those criminals who got shot and they will stand on trial before God for their actions.

  • Upyours

    The Geneva convention DOES NOT protect criminals (pirates).
    Should these animals murder any Russian sailors,
    Russia should bomb the Somalis back to the stone-age…….
    Oops they already ARE in the stone age.

    • Boris

      Bravo, Minnesota! All pirates (including their spokesman – what is it, who knows?) should get hung!

  • Hassan

    Russians are still stuck in a cold war mentality, where they think they have to prove something and that they still have complete disregard for human life. Russia will never again be a superpower, you guys are retarded, so stop pretending to be important in the world and respect other countries territorial waters.

    All the Russians that have commented here demonstrated that they are educated ignorant people, who like the U.S was saying ae eveil and have no morals. And for gods sake put down the alcahol and read a book.

    • scaredwardrobe

      Cold war? Looks like that's you, who still stucks in it.
      Only a few people in Russia really remember it.

    • Samogon

      Maybe you are so ignorant, and don't know that Russians are the most reading people in the World. Do you know, there are other books after Koran also! Have you tried to read Tolstoy or Dostoevsky?

      • Smirnoff

        Who told you he reads Koran? LOL

    • Anti-pirate

      It does not seem that you have read at least one book, moron.

  • PD Quig

    The way to end piracy is to administer swift retribution. The Ruskies almost got it right. They should have manacled the dead bodies to the living pirates and thrown them all overboard for the sharks. Put one or two in a lifeboat where they can be witness to the fun–up close and personal–and live to tell the cautionary tale.

    Note to Obama: no need for Miranda or NYC trials.

    • Glenn

      Good thinking. I agree.

    • Frank

      pirates should all be killed, they are all criminals, we should bomb there pirates town, and search all ships and arm all ships with security with a few sniper 50 cal rifles, and etc. If they get within 2500 ft, shot to kill. If ever pirate that goes to sea, dodent return, it will be over. US Navy Veteran

    • Joe

      Of all comments, this is the one that nailed it correctly. Perfect. This is EXACTLY what the Russians should have done. EXACTLY!!! PRECISELY!! BINGO!!!!!!

  • Somalilander

    The Russians are clearly uncivilized and barbaric animals and few white boys driven by isolation and neo-nazi views and behavour are backing this cold blooded killings instead of thinking rational.

    Russia was never a super power and will never be it can always bully small nations but even the Chinese have surpassed them, the Chinese dont come to kill few Somali fishermen instead they come to build roads, proper fishing facilities and empower communities and show them other ways to earn an income.

    The Russians who are uncivil behave like the drunk head they are. They can be angry and drunk all they want but like all issues they never resolved they are not the solution for the pirates — a greek ship has been already taken. The Greeks will not act like the Russians they will find a solution, a civil one and Somalis are ready to resolve the issue.

    Poor vodka addicts.

    • driver

      Unfortunately Greekc will not reac as russians did. And on this reason pirates will continue to capture ships. If all countries reacted the way russians did all piracy ended in one week.
      The funny thing: pirates violate law (or there is no law at all) but they still want others to deal with them in a good, proper, frendly manner. Good luck!

      • Somalilander

        Not true, the piracy will not be ended with this sort of action because the final solution lays with the Somalis and on shore.

        Russians lost the cold war and every other thing, what would you know?

        • Homo soveticus

          Ok russia lost cold war, but we win World War 2 as Sovietic Union, we beat US in the vietnam and have draw amtch in Korea, and if somalian people begins to kill russians – we still have enough power to completely erase you shitty little country from the face of the planet.

          just give us ground for that.

        • Smirnoff

          Russians stopped the cold war, my dear somalian pirate. And the best solution for you is is a bullet from Kalashnikov. You talk all this racist stuff about Russians because you are scared of them. And you should be.

    • pryanicoff`

      you brainwashed moron. watch TV less and thought more of his head. sorry for you

      believe that the pirates have a spokesperson?
      from witnesses (at sea), if all shot?

    • Russian navier

      Dude, the rules are very simple. If you come on board with a rifle, you will be designated as a pirate and killed.
      Imagine me coming to your home with a rifle. What will you do? Right, you will try to kill me before I kill you and your family. What were my mistakes? Right, 1)I came to your place though nobody wanted me there and 2) I carried a rifle.
      Try to think about it. And try to understand, that the war is not a game, you simply can die. If you take a rifle, be prepared for death, it's a law.

    • Anti-pirate

      you are just a moron!

    • mescovic

      You do realize Russia Ethic diverse Country with more then 300 ethic groups and as many languages. Orthodox Christianity, Islam and Buddhism are the main regions along with smaller tribal faiths. Hell one of the crew is Albanian a middle eastern race.

    • ertdfg

      Right. Imagine if someone came into your home, kidnapped your wife, and killed your kids… you'd then try to talk to them; maybe have a chat, give them what they want… and never do anything that might provoke them.

      Because defending yourself, your people, and your family is bad…

      But No, the Russians don't see it that way. They'll fight you if you bring a fight to them; they're not cowards unwilling to do what is necessary to defend themselves… how barbaric defending yourself… right Somalilander?

      Clearly defending yourself against violent aggression is wrong… and the Somali side is right because starting violent aggression is good; but defending yourself is barbaric… "thinking rational" is to let your people be kidnapped, attacked and killed by pirates over and over again with no defense… defending yourself is not rational…

      Does that make sense to anyone anywhere? Why does this look like the stupidest argument I've ever seen?

    • SOMALILANDER-ISSAQ

      GREAT JOB BY RUSSIA!!! REPLYING TO MY SOMALILANDER BROTHER! RUSSIA DID A GOOD JOB. YOU MY S/LANDER BRO, I ADVISE TO MIND OUR OWN S/LANDER BUSINESS.

AS CITIZENS OF THE SOVEREIGN REPUBLIC OF SOMALILAND, WE HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THESE SOMALI CRIMINELS/PIRATES. JUST MIND YOUR OWN SOMALILANDER BUSINESS. NO LAWFULL NATION SHOULD ACCEPT THUGS.

        F*CK YOU!!

  • Spetznaz

    It's so funny to read this whining from a confessed pirate about unfairness on the high seas… And he didn't even bother explaining how the oil tanker passing 350 miles off the coast of Somalia interferes with the "fishing" and what hijacking such tanker has to do with "simply wanting foreign ships to stop overfishing in our waters,".
    And obviously the race card… It's so clear now! Of course, the poor defenseless pirate victims were targeted by racist Russian commandos just because they are black. The attack had nothing to do with those pirate hijacking the oil tanker earlier and threatening lives of the crew…

  • from_Russia

    well done! The pirates got what they had deserved. I hope the rest of their collegues and their supporters will follow. And stop that stupid talk about the alleged discrimination. You are not exempt from retribution even if you claim to be because of your dark skin. The political correctness is nor popular here in Russia.

    • Richard

      God bless Russia!

  • driver

    It is very funny to read. Somalians pirates are highly civilized, but russian navy are barbarians. Wonderful.

    • Samogon

      Yes, we are barbarians! We do not want to do on "reasonable way" – pay money and leave free the people who are taking and killing our hostages. Shame on us!

  • pryanicoff

  • scutum

    Attacking the ships, capturing crews of the trading ships, killing in what not guilty people, the Somali pirates still wish to hope for any mercy?
    With ugly creatures trading in piracy it is necessary to arrive accordingly: to hang up on yards or to feed with them sharks.

  • http://intensedebate.com/people/Dayeer Dayeer

    "Live by the sword, die by the sword". The pirates are criminal gangs preying upon international shipping and each country has the right to fight these criminals with every means at their disposal. I find no fault with the Russian response – the pirates brought it on themselves. To the Somali apologists for the pirates, I say "grow up, the pirates are not romantic Robin Hoods, but criminal gangs controlled from by fatcat money-men based in Puntland which use their ill-gotten gains to fund terrorism, anarchy and tribalism thoughout Somalia, Somaliland and Ethiopia. I only wish that the fatcats would be similarly dealt with instead of these ignorant and mislead nomads that are seduced by dreams of easy money. All the other international navies present in the Indian Ocean should take their lead from the Russians and the French and deal with these pirates equally severley. Maybe then the scourge can be brought to an end.

  • Somalilander

    Somalis do not support piracy nor do they act this way, tell us how many hostages did they take and how many were even wounded forget killing?

    ZERO.

    The worst case is the British couples and Somalis continue to rally for their immediate release, all over UK, Somalia, Somaliland and even the Islamists are searching for them. It's very shameful to the Somalis to capture old people and we wish we could do something about it, but, what the Russians did is even worse to kill unarmed hostages then dumb them in the ocean and lie and say we released them. This is not about Somalis but when will Russia grow up and learn to act civil and take responsibility they lie about every thing. When your sons are blown up in so called "submarine accidents" they lie, when chemicals blow up and thousands die they lie. When terrorists take hostages of Russians they lie. Russia is just sad and lying story. Thats what makes us more sad.

    • Spetznaz

      Somalilander, you miss one simple point – Russians did not "kill unarmed hostages" they killed pirates who attempted to hijack a vessel. The fact that historically the pirates did not kill any hostages does not mean that the pirates should be treated well when captured. You sound like the pirates have the right to hijack the ships and we should all be grateful that they are not harming the hostages. Well, it's not the case. We will be defending ourselves against pirates and whoever embarks on a journey to try and hijack the ship should not be surprised to end up feeding fishes.
      You write – "This is not about Somalis but when will Russia grow up and learn to act civil and take responsibility" – are you serious? How is it not about Somalis when Somalis first attacked and seized russian oil tanker? They made it "about Somalis", not Russians. And if you advocate for "acting civil and taking responsibility" – why not start with Somalis? Is pirating, hijacking and extorting ransoms a "civil act" ? I think not.

    • driver

      Somalilander, you better stop to worry about hiw bad the Rusia is and start to worry how bad is your country is and it will be the best you can do.
      I still just wondering of one simple thing: you said "Russian navy shoot them and them put their dead bodies to vessel". My question is very simple: how do you know Russians did if there is no vwitness at all? Who did tell you those details? Whom did you get information from? Who can prove it? Can anyone?

      • USA <3 Russia

        Yeah who's to say the Pirate Leader didn't really pissed and execute them for messing the job up???

    • Gotwsyvm

      It doesn t matter how few hostages they have killed since that piracy started, they are hijacking ships with firearms and WE know what their plot is: to greatly undermine the European/Asian activities around Africa, to cause them economical loss in commercial transport and in military by the sending of a high-cost permanent force which is soft with the pirates and won't discourage them.

    • uibeleth

      так сидора черноокого!!!

    • Sasha

      Hi, Somalilander. I am Russian. I understand your anger. To be just I have to agree with you, that killing those pirates probably was motivated by racial hatred. Unfortunately, It is common for my compatriots to talk about Africans as subhuman apes. Russians in their mass (with a few exception) are very anti-black and constantly making racial remarks towards Africans. It is even unsafe for the black person to walk on the streets on Russian cities. Shame on us!

      • doglove

        It is unlikely a matter of black or white, but rather who is playing with firearms on an oil ship. Maybe the soldiers might have felt bound to the rules of engagement, but would you take the time to find out if the pirates played by the same rules? Even if there is a lot of racial hatred in Russia, in this situation, I do not think it would have mattered: firearms and oil are still a very deadly combination. Soldiers know that in situations like this, an enemy can easily lay down his gun and trigger something more deadly, like a bomb or grenade. Honestly, I think the soldiers did not wait to negotiate or engage, but simply took out their enemy the moment they caught sight of them. The oil tanker itself is both a valuable resource and a deadly weapon, and the pirates taking over the ship can easily be seen as an engaging move, prompting immediate defensive action. If the soldiers executed the pirates, it would have been to make a statement to all the other pirates in the area "This will be you if you mess with us". This practice is as old as warfare itself- kill to make a statement. I am not saying the killing was justified, I am simply pointing out that taking over an oil liner is extremely reckless because governments do not joke around or hesitate to respond when it comes to oil. Even if the soldiers had not shot the pirates, do you really think the oil companies would have tolerated this blight to their business?

    • doglove

      First of all, you are overlooking the fact that the article is mostly in quotes "", meaning the author can not say for certain that the information is true. Pirates are not exactly known for being honest.
      Second of all, the pirate claims they attacked the oil tanker because they want other countries to stop over-fishing their waters. If this were the case, why would they attack an oil tanker instead of a fishing vessel? The last time I checked, the best way to keep the fisherman away is to attack fishing boats, not oil tankers, relief supply ships, and merchant ships. These pirates are demonstrating the same mentality as people who steal during riots- they are using the concerns of respectable people to justify theft and destruction. A ship could be full of scientists who are trying to reverse the effects of over-fishing (put more fish in the water) and the pirates would probably still attack them.
      Lastly, consider the situation from the point of view of a soldier, or even someone with a good head on their shoulders: a group of untrained men are running around an OIL tanker with FIREARMS, and very soon they will be outnumbered, are you really going to wait for the ship to explode to find out if the pirates have grenades and Uzis in their arsenal, or are you going to "neutralize" the situation as quickly as possible? Without an autopsy or some video footage, we have no way of knowing who is telling the truth, since both sides have a reason to lie. Maybe the Russians subdued and executed the pirates, maybe the trained soldiers shot the enemy on first sight instead of risking a gun battle on an oil ship, and maybe it went down as the Russians claim; until a scenario can be proven, perhaps it is best that we state the lesson that should be learned from this experience, which is "Holding an oil ship hostage is flirting with death or detention", and "People with bigger guns do not feel the need to negotiate over resources"(except for the French)

    Somalilander, Google search Somalia and hostages. There are countless accounts of Somalia hostages being taken. Remember the US hostages taken at sea April last year? All but 1 of the pirates were killed. Are the US Navy uncivilized and barbaric animals? You are a moron!

    If you and your people weren't such freakin savages, maybe Russia would have had some compassion. Maybe eliminating these sub-humans was showing compassion to the rest of the world!

    Lets kill all pirates, they are murders and thieves . Viva russian power !

  • dim

    Pirates got what they deserve. russian navi kicked their ass and let them go in their boat, freely. It is pirate’s responcibility to find coastline nearby and it is their problem what land is 350 miles away. It is so funny to read what oil tanker, “disrupt somalian fishermen” beeing almost in the middle of Indial Ocean :) it is even funnier to hear how some looser pirate whining about “bad Russia” kicked his butt. Go grow some chicken, pirate, and NEVER EVEN THINK TO COME CLOSE RUSSIAN SHIPS or you’ll be feed to sharks in no time. Kudos, Russians! Do it again!

      You are a skinhead racist, American will never be this stupid except few like you. what Russian army did if it's true, is barbaric and shame on them.

    • Frank

      Maybe obama is getting money from the pirates for his next election, so he does not give them death for killing americans. Just feed his brothers for life in prison. They killed 4 Americans, they should be killed if found guilty right away, they get the Death sentence. They were the only ones on that boat that killed the 4 people, they should die with in the year.

  • FUPirates

    These idiots got what they deserved. Every country should immediately execute pirates. That'll end piracy, just like it did centuries ago. Only a complete idiot would feel sorry for the pirates or believe what this "spokesman" said. More dead pirates makes the world a happy place. Go Russia!

  • Holuai Bay (draft 1-91)

    With all respect to Africa, how can an anonymous somebody become a witness, inspite of the moronic trend to speak about Russia as of a fascist state right after the Victory day, say? “Point-blank shooting”, hmm. Seen any bodies?

    There are some people whom you may not trust, ok… in the U.K… sadly. I’ll try to reveal it further.

    As the boat, as was said above, has disappeared from radars (did it appear on sonars then, or was the echo collided with the pirate mothership drifting 55 miles away from the tanker?) I would suppose that somebody needs a black op in media, quickly, basing on the fact of “disappearing from radars”.

    I’d suppose that the boat was destroyed from the pirate mothership. This is just the way many special operations go. There were no need to kill anyone if they’re captured. If there was, why don’t anybody tell us?

    Fishermen… it’s lies from the very first word. Look, they’re going to “kill Russian seamen”. I’d like to see any b*tch who’d dare to start messing ON THE GROUND with the Russians like those from the SD Shaposhnikov.

    I start to think that’s the goal one would be paid very well for. And, of course, I wouldn’t ponder for more than a millisecond if I’m to shoot or give some mercy, when the adversary is targeting me with his AK.

  • Somalilander

    I can see all the little white boys cheering each others some even write "I wish Putin was the US president" why dont u move to Moscow and see the reality there. Naive little kid, if Americans saw or heard you they do deport you back to your communist nation of origin. We know you one of the sons of the many Russian prostitutes that prostituted their way into the hearts of American men for $50.

    The world is not naive like you little kids and we know how much the West hates Russia and how much Russia hates the West. the Western media now days refers Russia as "Super power, an energy term that is".

    The future is China, and both Russia and US will come under Bejing as that transition is almost complete, the final puzzle missing is Japan, Japanese need to back China and forget the past and share their technology with Beijing.

    You cant even take on 50 somali fisher men, one you execute 10 you celebrate all week. Look forward to the fire works in Moscow, dont forget the vodka.

  • Somalilander

    Russia is useless, they just want reasons to drink vodka, now their president will call national holiday aka Vodkaa day. They just want reasons to get drunk.

    Those who are saying they wish Putin was their president, shows how much they know about the world, Putin is no longer the president of Russia and I am sure you the son of one of those Russian women who came to USA to find American men and few dollars and solution to their vodka problem and proverty.

    Go back to Russia.

    • unsINT

  • Serge

    Absolutely agree with Russian navy. Didn’t get just one thing…Why they didn’t shoot pirates in the first place?! I’m tired to see the news about Somalis who are stealing ships and captured people. It’s the 21st century! They should be punished by their own government. If this ethnic group is SOOOO stupid that can’t even create a proper state, and UN can do nothing with that, only the way is to eliminate these imbeciles from the international shipping routs.

  • http://intensedebate.com/profiles/aresix aresix

  • Serge

    Like it! Finally Russian Officers can speak clear as should be…

  • from_Russia

    quite right. It is higt time a tight naval blockade of the Somalian schore were arranged. The international community has enough strength and ressources to do that. It should be a clever blockade: real local fishermein should be allowed to practise their trade further, but pirate vessels must be stopped and destroyed without exception. And raging apes should be kept in cages…

    What do you offer?
    To pay the pirates a ransom? For as established?
    International laws require if caught pirates planted them in the ocean in a boat without a weapon, as did Russian navy.
    This is not a crime, they acted within international law, but the Somali pirates have violated these laws, but it's their problem.

    • Albert

      That's slightly incorrect, international law says that we can get them to our court and judge them by our laws. I guess our men didn't want to bring them to Russia and just let them go without weapons and navigation.
      BTW 350km without navigation – not deathly as many may think. Of course when I'm saying that I mean that it's not deadly for sailors, professional sailors and fishermen. So I guess that pirates were neither, so they died. Or they were killed by their colegues.

    When I was in a Russian University in my group was a girl Kabunda Ngandu Bibish – the daughter of the Minister of the Republic of Zaire. It was wonderful! She is well spoken in Russian and we dont have problems because of skin color or nationality. Russian is very loyal to people of other nationalities. It is important that you are a man: good or bad …

    A Somali pirates – villains who represented a threat to the crew of the ship (the citizens of Russia). Any country has the right to protect the lives of its citizens by all available means, including military forces.

    Looking at the most of the international comments I feel myself to be glad that everybody in the World know what the Russians really are, despite russian Putin's goverment multimillion dollars TV and other media broadcasting projects, showing that russians are civilized and kind like Jesus.

    I'm Russian and I do excuse for stupid comments from our citizens. Do not blame them – better feel sorry. The link to this article was shown in the truewords antiPutin's goverment news website.

    Most of the nazist russian comments here are made by poor man, living in the grey slumslike cities for less than $500 per month salary and all that is available for them is russian's Putin's corrupted goverment TV and propaganda.

    They even do not understand, that Russia is very poor and wild place on the globe – they are not able to compare it, since most of them have never visited civilized counries.

    The penalty made by russian marines is of course evil but it shows not the soul of all russian people but only the wildness goverment and majority of poor citizens of my country.

  • Wes

    An oil tanker in international seas should not be a target for pirates and justifying it by overfishing in their area? Wrong answer. The tip and horn of the bank off the east coast of Canada aren't full of pirates even though there is severe overfishing taking place.

    Agreed, they don't have a lot to live by but I think ordinary law states if deadly force is used, you can use it against them.

    If this was the reply to attempted or successful piracy; it would stop happening. They got what they deserved.

  • banana

    My condolences to the Russians who now have blood on their hands.

  • uncle Joe

  • US Airborne

    IF the pirates were executed it is a benefit to Somalis. Somalia has a bad reputation world wide. To lose these lowlife criminals is no big tragedy. Some of us still bear a grudge against Somalia and the militias from '93. Personally I think the racial ploy is backwards. The fact that Somalia is a black African nation is probably why the US didn't wipe out Mogidishu. The pirates have been treated with kid gloves for the most part, I hope that changes.

  • Hassan

    Wow I can't believe the number of racist russians that have posted on here, unbelievable! To be honest, you sound very ignorant and no one should take your comments seriously, considering your racist views of Somalis.

    • ukrainian

      You know Hassan, some time ago the somalian pirates took the greek ship 'Ariana' with ukrainian crew on board.
      There were two women and one girl-child. All of them were raped. One woman was pregnant and lost her child.
      Spanish crew tryied to bring help and the medicines but the pirates just threw all the medicines outboard.
      I had always compassion for the somalian people and their destiny.
      But after that case no more.
      Ukrainian people did not do any harm to somalian, so why did you do that? You are more careful with americans or germans.
      But what is matter with us, ukrainian? So, who is here the racist?

      Respect does not come easy. You need to deserve it. Start to work and not to rob.

  • Someone Russian

    Who are you to judge who is civilized and who isn't?

    And what did you expected? Our marines will give a chocolate to pirates and let them away, saying "sorry, guys that was a mistake, you can continue robbing". Your luck we are democracy now, ohterwise your country would be invaded, or even nuked! Dont you realise the power of country you have messed with?

  • kada

    I love how the pirates try to spin the story. Stop others from overfishing by hijacking an… oil tanker? True, these are so similar, who wouldn't mistake an oil tanker for a fishing boat? Maybe these pirates need some glasses? And of course if you try to get back your ship you are a racist. If these pirates had been white the Russians would have said… "sure, take the ship, we'll give you our vessel too, let's drink vodka our brothers". Yeah right.

    I'm all for stopping overfishing, but then please only attack those who actually do that. Everything else will appear as the false excuse it is (though it admittedly works).

  • Realist

    "unarmed hostages"??? Maybe they were unarmed because the Russians had to yank the automatic rifles from their hands after they took back their own property!

    Why waste the ammo? Just make the pirates walk the plank and sail away. It worked for centuries!

    Nah, I live in Russia. It's ok, decent, government sucks though. And there are a lot of angry people, stupid people, but every country has them. Anyway cruel operations are the common method of solving any military related problem in foreign policy. But in our country people mostly don't care.
    On the other hand, think, they hijacked a fucken oil tanker, and our economy is based on oil export(that's a shami, I know), so no wonder pirates got killed.

    Like I said they properly ate those pirates, tomorrow they will issue new press release "sharks (Russians) ate the pirates while we were drinking vodka, opzz we are sorry (vodka breath).

    I am also certain on their side of the ocean no one goes there even the fish and sharks below flee from the smell off Russians and vodka (remember Berlin how people dug out holes to escape from their side, the marine live below their vessels are doing the same now).

    Russian all correctly have made, but too on – kind. The pirates in general should be drowned, or to shoot. And them have given chance to survive. If the pirates have not taken advantage of this chance – are guilty.

  • murderous vodka-love

    >the Chinese dont come to kill few Somali fishermen instead

    Instead (at least I heard so) they just told that ANYONE trying to capture their ships will be killed outright. Simple as that.

    And you know, I didn't hear about chinese ships captured by somali pirates.

    >but, what the Russians did is even worse to kill unarmed hostages

    Ahem. They are HOSTAGES already? What did I miss?

    >Yes!! And this tanker was full of vodka. Please do not steal our vodka. It was suicude. Sorry.

    :) good pirate is a dead pirate

    And. There are more variants:

    1) Pirates were released, they succesfully came back, then their leaders started all the fuss with "murders of innocent tanker-hijacking fishermen"

    2) Russians really wiped out that bastards

    3) Pirates were released, but another pirates killed them to create a story about murderous vodka-lovers.

    Why all you people talking about v2? Where and what are the evidences, at least?

  • Sipho

    I hope all Somalis take note of the white racists talking here. Remember that when you take what belongs to us from these oppressors. We are not scared of the giants because when they fall, they fall hard. Don't be scared my brothers, we to in the south of Africa are taking our revenge on the white peoples. Steal from them with no conscence. We are comrades in arms and the Russians trained us, so we know how to fight them. Africa for Africans

    • Alexxx

      Yes, Sipho – Africa for Africans – go back from America and Europe!!!!!!
      Eat themself!!!!!!!!!

    it's not right
    Pirates was using for training young soldiers – few guys on the board don't kill before this mission
    For experiense all young russian soldier must cut head from alive enemy/ It's help control stress on the future fighter

      Where have you got this information? But in any case, I like your way of thinking:)

      • Alexxx

        It was black humor
        John Talor write, that pirates have been eaten by marines

        • Samogon

          It was not true! We Russians are eating only brains and drinking blood, nothing else! We are selling bodies of pirates to Chinese restaurants, but please don't tell it to nobody!

    Listen up little communists and their cheerleaders. First of all Somaliland and Somalia are two different states, Somalia is where the pirates are based in particular in the Puntland region. Having said that allow me to enlighten you.

    First of all learn the difference between a debate and racist slurs, difference between rational thinking and emotions. I am getting nothing but racist remarks and emotions from the 250+ so that commented. The only Russian that made sense is Dammies or whatever.

    Now learn and comment like an adult stop getting sensitive.

    As most of you know Somalia (yes that country next to us (Somaliland)) has not had government since 1991 and ever since commercial vessels have been over fishing in the Somali waters, when the pirate says overfishing he doesnt mean the tankers he means the commercial ships that are there. But they take whatever ship is on Somali waters because most of them dont even pay legal entry into Somali waters, see it as a taxation and tariff rather than a "ransom". See the pirates as coast guards due to the lack of governance in Mogadishu rater than as "criminals".

    Also understand that Somalia became a failed state because of one man who had the mentality of Russians, who liked Russia, who allied himself with Russia, he thought Socialism was wisdom, he thought vodka was holy water, that man is Mohamed Siad Barre, the last Somali dictator.

    Notice wherever Russia influenced, it either became a failed state, a drunk state or a no-go zone like North Korea, Cuba, etc…you all know it I dont need to name them. Somalia is no different, the sided with USSR, they became a failed country.

    So partly you are to be blamed, so allow me to ask now. Why is that wherever Russia goes it becomes back warded failed State? I see it in your culture and the way you live. You gave nothing to the world but communism, destruction and failed policies. Somalia has not recovered from your socialism ideologies. Now its experimenting with new rules and ideas.

    For those Russians living in the US, who think they could tarnish the American name around after their Russian mothers were allowed in to marry to an American. Remember America too had a civil war – today it's Somalia's turn it will recover and be a great nation, while you are still drinking your vodka and practicing same policies. At least in Somalia they are experimenting…its called change and some times change brings a down fall, but it will stand up.

    For now, allow me to toss a glass of vodka to all the Communists, they are happy their rusted ship didnt sink instead it executed 11 unarmed Somali civilians. I say аплодисменты (ура) mother Russia, your rusted ship continues to sail.

    Hail to Rusians!

  • Ron

    Actually the action was s.th between right and wrong.

    It was right that Russians protected their ship (well done) and it was coward the act of killing HOSTAGES.

    BTW, there is nothing to be proud for. They where just 10 – 11 pirates and you found the solution in the worst "diplomatic" way :P. Sometime it works but it's not forcibly the best one.

  • Koko

    Play with fire, get your fingers burned. Pirates got what they deserve.
    Wish every country does the same – and there will be no pirates.

  • AlexF

    Actually Russian tanker was all in fire when commandoes did start their assault. Actually there were not commandoes, just a simple mariners (non-professional 18-20 guys who shall serve in Russian navy).
    Poor pirates have splashed the engine room where Russian crew was with diesel to fire the live sailors. Only in these events mariners opened the fire.
    All of pirates were killed aboard. They were not executed. They were killed in action. Feel the difference?
    Yes this is Russian style.
    10 bandits = 10 bullets.
    1 bullet = $2.
    Total expenses $20. No bad economy result! Congrats!
    I hope in the future pirates shall think twice to attack the civil ships.
    By the way the tanker was under Liberian flag. How they can recognize it as a Russian vessel, ah?
    So in this case Somalia pirates absolutely show their staidness and idiotism:
    Firstly they can not take the tankers more than 22 hours, secondly while they were killed by teenage-mariners.
    It means that pirates have no chances to survive in this situation. May be they’ll better become a peasants and shepherds?

    I hope US Navy will accept this Russian experience.

    • AlexF

      staidness = mistype. Stupidness I would say….

      • East Expert

        No again, it was a ghost of a killed Pirate who did the photo and video shooting to pass the story to the Pirates remaining alive, so their Speaker could complain.

    • Samogon

      How peasants or shepherds could get dozens of millions of USD in several hours? The World community must pay them for not to be pirates millions to each other, and not to kill them when they are taking hostages! Because pirates are good and civilized, and they are reading books instead of Russians!

  • U.S. Marines

    How you dare to call people which the first have departed to space – barbarians?
    How you to the estimate to call nazis of people which have won A.Hitler and nazi Germany in WW2, and have lost thus 26 million people, having paid this huge price for freedom Europe and Asia?
    It is necessary to be the full idiot to name the most multinational country on a planet racists. (Yes, yes, Russia the greatest country and the most much national power)… Russian marines one of most best solders in the world. I express great respect as Russian protect the citizens, you all should learn at Russian.
    They really great nation to be, pleasant it to you or not.

    • AlexF

    • Kayse

      Everyone knows your not U.S. marine but a Russian alcoholic hiding behind the US. Even when the US act foolish and show no regard for human life, they have agencies that investigate the matters and bring them to justice. I respect USA.

      Go drink your vodka and dream about the marines. Your rusted tank from 1941 (looted from Germany) is calling you.

  • Angelina

    Great job, Russia!
    Death to all the pirates!

  • Alex

    Even if this article is reflecting real events (which I doubt), the moment when a person takes a gun and hijacks a ship he stops being human and does not have any rights.

    So funny, non of the speakers here knows any real Russians. You guys just read newspapers and think that you know things. How ironic.

    Please we know Russia and as far as we are concern it represents vodka, lawlessness and bribery.

    The only reason they killed this pirates is because the pirates didnt have beer to bribe them with.

      I am white and I am your supporter. Somali pirates are not pirates but heroes fighting against exploitation of Western countries. Russians have a slave mentality. And they are cowards and stupid too. That's why their oligarchs stole all the resources from them, but they don't fight back. They work like cattle for free. But now they are proud that they killed 11 Somalis.

    Ha! Pirates possibly would like not to get to russian ship now. But how can they tell, since the flag can be of another country? So their's asses will begin to ache every time they attack a ship in anticipation of punishment :D

    In this case however the tanker's name was "Moscow University". A clear hint. But pehaps those poor bastards didn't know where Moscow is or didn't care a fuck. Supposing they could read at all.

  • Somalilander

    Remember I said to you, the Western media will soon target and expose Russia's mafia clan known as "navy" which is nothing but a fancy title for their sea gang.

    Well that has began and this is why I will say it over and over again – God bless the good Americans who understand Rules of Engagement (RoF), Geneva Convention and regard of human lives. Let's compare them, last year the American ship was hijacked the Navy seals stormed and got the hostages free, while in firefight they killed three or so pirates, the one that was captured they took him to New York to face a fair independent trial, fed him and treated him as a human even if he is criminal, Americans know behind it all he is just a teenager maybe brain washed by a pirate boss, maybe he was trying to feed his family and he isnt the problem but was taken advantage of like the hostages.

    But Russians……they are sad people.

    All my American friends and emailing this story to each others amazed and disgusted with the Russians.

    The few claiming to be Americans in here barking a either skin heads (kept in the shadows) or those who were mothered by the millions of Russian women who were brought to America.

    “We will deal with Russians unlike other hostages. We never think about harming a hostage, but we will reconsider that, and respond the same way their navies respond to us.” said Isse, a pirate commander in the coastal town of Hobyo, told Reuters.

    Its now clear the Russians did execute them.

  • Somalilander

    Somalia’s transitional government called on Russia on Friday to explain why it had cut 10 Somali pirates adrift in the Gulf on Aden without navigation equipment or much hope of survival.

    Russian forces last week stormed a hijacked oil tanker in a rescue operation that killed one pirate. Russia said 10 others arrested were later set loose aboard one of the small vessels they used in the attack.

    A military official said they were stripped of their weapons and navigation equipment. Russian media later quoted a military source saying the pirates were now likely dead.

    Reuters has also now confirmed the Russians executed them:

    Some pirates pledged revenge, insisting their comrades were executed by the Russians.

    “We will deal with Russians unlike other hostages. We never think about harming a hostage, but we will reconsider that, and respond the same way their navies respond to us.” said Isse, a pirate commander in the coastal town of Hobyo, told Reuters.

    • Casandra

      It is a big mistake to treat Russians in a civilized way. It is a barbaric, very cruel and very stupid nation. They respect only somebody like Stalin. Who will turn them in slave, torture and kill by millions. The worse you treat Russians and the more you kill them, the more they will respect and adore you. No wonder their most beloved hero is Stalin. The Bolsheviks didn't even consider them people, but a herd of retarded cattle.

          "An UK couple"- it says all. If you know a little bit of history, English people had colonies all over the world. They stole, and still are stealing resources from former colonies. Not to mention millions of people they killed in the process, and the environmental degradation they left behind. It was all done with army and navy, supported by English people. They are not innocent victims. They pay for the crimes their ancestors, military and governments did for centuries.

            They showed you a video of them robbering Yemeni fishermen and told you they are Somali pirates.

            Also it's amazing you don't even know how to count, those Somalis suppose to be 11-1 = 10. How many on that boat?

            Russians took the Yemeni fishermen's undies and clothe.

    You did not answer my qustion earlier. My comment was deleted unfortunately…
    Maybe because there was the word 'WORK' that somebody don't like?

    So, why 'angry comunists' want any reason to attack Somalis and blacks in general? What for russians need Somali and blacks? What is use of you to them?
    Could you explain this?

    Such a racist as YOU yourself I really did not meet in all my long life.
    Of course, it is always convenient to tell 'he is just a racist' in order to find an exuse for yourself.

    'You people are all big racists. We Africans are peaceful people and only steal from the rich white nations because you have stolen all from us. We only rape and murder to protect ourselves.'

    Yeahh… We are very PEACFUL people. Yeahh, we rape…We murder… But we are very PEACFUL people. But when another killed (under big question) in order to protect their lifes from you, peacfull people, – they are racist.

    Я тоже за МОЧИТЬ тех уродов, которые взяли оружие и нападают на суда, а то всё на бедность сваливают, на автоматы, гранатамёты, быстроходные катера и навигационную систему денег хватает. Я предлагаю, что бы ввили всемирный закон, те кто их поймал, брали в плен и везли к себе в страну и там судили и тюрьму отдельно для них построить, где нибудь около острова Греландия и там их держать.

    So, why 'angry comunists' want any reason to attack Somalis and blacks in general? What for russians need Somali and blacks? What is use of you to them?
    Could you explain this?

    Such a racist as YOU yourself I really did not meet in all my long life.

    Agreed with most comments. By the way, if you sow the video definitely noticed that most of captured pirates were not Africans (about 3/4 of pirates raised their hands when Russian guy was asking who is from Pakistan). So seems that in Somalia thing totally out of control and all world crap found safe haven over there.

    Most people commenting here are uneducated Russians and the kids the Russian ladies that fled from Russia had with foreign men in a foreign land.

    They dont even understand this is a Somali site not Russian, so how come they type Russian language? I blame the vodka.

    Any human would prefer to be kidnapped by a Somali pirate than to be in the hands of what represents law and order in Russia (a police man).

    Even our lawless pirates have more mercy and regard for humans than Russia's police and doctors. In Russia you can never trust that so called doctor could be a KGB carrying an AIDS suringe (that's how aids spread in Russia and is the worst place in that part of the world).

    Any Russian woman would prefer to be kidnapped by a sexy 6 ft dark Somali man than a Russian smelling vodka who is going to rape her and chase her to USA. This is why Russian women have so many dating sites looking for FOREIGN men. So I ask why are your women running from you? Why?

    All the American agencies are investigating this incident now – we all know Russia only good for bullying small nations and unarmed civilians. When they hear America, China or UK they fly two dusty bombers over Ukraine and run back to their base to have more vodka. Thats Russia.

    Russia go bully some small nation like Fiji. You cant stand up to the bigger nations.

    Bravo to the Russian Navy! The merchant marine salutes you and hope that other navies take a lesson from you. If all warships took the same stance, piracy would be over in a week!

    Since when did pirates start having spokesmen?? They are a bunch of criminals who deserve to be executed. And the idea of protecting 'fishing grounds' 1500 nautical miles off the Somalia coast and claiming the 'high seas' as their fishing area sounds so ridiculous. Where do these idiots come from and have they not heard of the UN Convention of the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS)?

    If they threaten the Russian seamen, the pirates are playing with fire. All Russia has to do is park a couple of guided missle destroyers off the Somalia coast and blast the pirate stronghold cities of EYl, Haraderre and Bossaso. And the world, I a sure will look the other way!!

    It is high time the pirates realised that when you play with fire, you can get burnt!

    “our men never hurt their hostages”?

    1.) 2 coast guard guardsmen killed
    Somali pirates with automatic weapons captured the ship, carrying 6 Kenyans and 6 Sri Lankans. On February 27,2007 members of the Somali coast guard attempted to take back the ship but failed, and 2 coast guardsmen were killed.

    2.) 1 hostage killed
    The Taiwanese fishing vessel was hijacked on May 28, 2007. The surviving crew of 10 Chinese, two Taiwanese and two Filipino crew members was released on November 5 after spending more than six months in captivity. One Chinese crew member was killed by the pirates on May 28 because the ship’s owners failed to meet their ransom demands.

    3.) 1 crewman killed
    The MV Bunga Melati Dua, a Malaysian palm oil tanker owned by MISC Berhad, and its crew of 29 Malaysians and ten Filipinos was hijacked by pirates in two speedboats. One Filipino crew member was killed during the boarding.

    4.) 1 hostage killed
    The French yacht was captured by pirates on 4 April 2009, taking hostage a couple, their 3-year-old child, and two friends of the family who joined them in Aden. They were supposed to join Mayotte, and left Vannes on 26 July. The French forces stormed the yacht on 10 April while the pirates refused French offers to free the hostages. One hostage, Florent Lemaçon, 28, was killed, and the four other freed, including the child. Two pirates were killed and three others captured.

    5.) 1 captain killed
    Pirates attacked the vessel near Mogadishu harbor. During the hijacking attempt, the Syrian captain was killed and several crewmen wounded. Somali police and African Union peacekeepers rescued the ship.

Please, this is nothing more than psychological warfare and, sad to say, it is necessary when dealing with the criminally minded.

    Do you know why 30 years ago pirates did not attacked ships from the USSR? They were afraid. Because USSR naval forces were allowed to give pirates what they earn…

    The problem is necessary for considering through a geopolitics prism. Washington arranges with hands of pirates provocations on the sea to the countries upon which it is necessary to put pressure. It is very a pity to me that as a bludgeon the American special services have chosen defenceless Negroes. Responsibility for  destruction of the Somali aggressors lies on Washington. It is necessary to remember it always when we face the next capture of a vessel. All captures are dated to kaim-or to events in the world. It is necessary to the Turkish leader or the leader of Germany to take a step towards Russia, pirates here as here. Similarly and with actions of leaders of other states. A problem not in pirates, and in those who stands up for their backs.

I have no problems with the Russian courts of laws passing the death penalty to pirates they bring to justice, but there is no justification whatsoever for soldiers murdering people in their captivity.

    Killing these pirate rascals was the wrong approach. We should have dressed them in striped shirts and wool caps, outfitted them with floaties and set them adrift. Then, all the transocean air passengers can play a giant game of "Where's Waldo". Why waste good pirates?

  • Ahmed Osmanb

    I Think the pirates in Somalia are defending their international territorial waters which is 12 nautical miles as well as commercial zones. We know that the American vessels and the NATO vessels paroling the coast of Somalia are catching thousands of tons of fish per day for their troops fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq. This is an acceptable theft and fraud committed by what is called advanced countries who reached in a common consensus to Somalia sea resources.

    The pirates may disappear if fishing industry is helped and this shows how UN especially FAO failed to help artisan fishermen in Somalia to discourage piracy, but the piracy is the recursions and consequences of international community's theft, and a good example can be taken by the Spanish vessels caught by the piracy as well as Egyptian vessels as well.

    All Somali administrations, including the only viable state of Somaliland, Djibouti, Puntland and TFG should defend their coasts against new era and hidden colony who are based in Somalia territorial waters.

  • Stacysole

    I admire Russians. Our Navy acting on orders from Washington fingerprint them. Russians kill them. They can try to skin 1 Russian and Russia will destroy Somalia. Not half ass war with Rules but real war the same like Russians killed over 1 million and I beleive if Breznev is alive he will order total liquidation of this state called Afghanistan. I was in army under Russian Generals and I beleive the war over Cuba will lead to total destruction of USA and Russia too

  • asdffasfsfdsf

    Does anyone have any balls here. The guy did armed robbery and sometimes people die when they try to steal other peoples belongings. The Russians should be commended for shooting them since if they would have released them they would have been out tomorrow and put more lives at risk. Keep the Kalashnikov barrels hot in Gulf of Aden. For most of the responders of this add the Gulf of Aden is indeed a body of water.

  • donkelly

    Oil tankers are not fishing boats taking fish from Somali fisherman. The Somali claim to the contrary is disingenuous. Pirates should be immediately hanged,

  • Otto

    The Moscow U. is a tanker, never had anything to do with fishing.

    Russians made THE GREAT JOB! Pirates MUST BE EXECUTED every time they are found on the ship. They do not resp[ect any law – why russians should respect p[irates. You Europeans better forgot all dumb _correctnesses_ and do the same – and world will became better.

  • Margaret

    I wish more countries would get a back bone like the Russians did and treat piracy in the same manner instead of worrying about what the rest of the world will think, good on them.

  • liberator

    Why don't the affected countries(US, Asian and other Western countries) form a joint force and do some cleansing activities in the Indian Ocean and around the Somalian coast. Basically what I mean is destroy their mother vessels/boats and basic infrastructure. It's also necessary to negate their intelligence activities and information sources. They should also look forward to do this cleansing periodically to ensure fearless passage of the ships through that region. I do agree that not all Somalians are pirates and It may sound very inhuman, but certain communities/groups of that country are acting as mad 'animals' which is not only affecting their country but other communities as well. It's high time we pinpoint these elements as accurately as possible and wipe them out periodically. A co-ordinated effort in this regard will help in minimizing the losses suffered by the concerned nations.

  • ken

    To all you panty wearing "civilized people" Go drink your late and leave the dirty work to the men. The only way to deal with them is to kill them. They will continue to attack ships until they feel unsafe doing so.

  • gurtz

    I like the race card. Russians might have all types of guilts, but they surely have no race guilt. Truth is that a black pirate won't get any better treatment from the Russians only for the sake of political correctness. He can be sure to be executed as easily as if he even were a Russian.

  • gurtz

    "if we capture Russians they will meet the same fate as those they executed,” he added.

    Statements like this can only make Russian ships to blow up any vessel on a horizon that remotely looks like a pirate. Russian strategy has always been – shoot first, ask questions second. The only way for Somali pirates to live a bit longer – avoid Russian vessels at all costs.

  • Greg

    They should ve been shot right away during storm of that ship. Pirates are like terrorists. If they decide to rob they have no rights

  • ernie i. gonzalez

    Since the time of the Phoenicians through to modern times the penalty for Piracy has always been death. It is expected just as death is expected when attacked by Pirates. In this case the Russians are guilty of not following international due process. While the outcome is the same the process was a bit too brutal and efficient.

    Good for the Russians, and too bad for the pirates. The world needs more of this, not less. Pirates practice violence as a way of life, and shouldn't be surprised when violence practices them.

    Those of you who are trying to support the minority Somali claim of illegal fishing, just show me where a yacht, or a cargo ship, or an oil tanker is stealing your fish.

    You kidnap, and kill people for money, and hold ships ransom. You don't like the label, then stop putting bullets in innocent people.

  • garrett

    And this is bad because…?

  • Cha-ching

    Wow, it's as if being a pirate is a dangerous lifestyle or something.

    Who would have thought kidnapping and ransoming would have such conseqeunces!!!!

    But seriously, I don't think it's right that the Russians are executing prisoners, that having been said, they're pirates. Russia is making a clear message, we take no prisoners and give no quarter to pirates. This is exactly the message that needs to sent. Perhaps then there wouldn't be so many anxious to start raiding on the high seas knowing Russian destroyers are actively hunting.

  • marwawa

    I think Russians did what every other nation should do. There are no excuses for 21 century pirates. You try to board one of the ships just remember that you might not come back home to your Allah. Why don't you do farming, build the roads, educate yourself. Instead you count on Chinese to help you rebuild the country that you can not take care it yourself. Thank you Russian Navy if this is true fact.

  • Voice of Europe

    The atricle is a lie. The pirate spokesman justifys the pirates actions by saying:

    "our men never hurt their hostages, we simply want foreign ships to stop overfishing in our waters, if they are not happy to respect our-fishermen and their livelihood, we have no choice but to take hostage to compensate for the losses,”

    As if the OIL TANKER was there to fish!? It's totally clear to me that hijacking of the oil tanker was an action of pure greed and nothing else. I think the russians did the right thing. It might sound harsch, but that's the only language they understand.

  • Mary

    This is a very strange article. I do not think it likely that merchant marine and cruise line ships in these waters are really fishing, so I find the statement of the pirate that they simply attack to preserve the livelihood of Somali fisherman to be questionable. Furthermore, if merchant marine and cruise ships are damaging the livelihood of Somali fisherman, the should be addressed by the government by international law, treaty, law suits and the action of the Somali navy, not by common pirates. Note that this news outlet publishes with the word 'pirate', not freedom fighter or protector of the environment. The word 'pirate' has always indicated a lawless person who preys on lawful ships. If Russia's actions can be proved, then the government should bring a grievance against the Russian government as provided for by international law.

  • abdi alimatan

    my comment is based to handule somali embasdor in moscow, this s joke simply, he always been alcholic man living with russian woman, I know him since early nineties, the embassdor and the counselor left and most of the employers left the country, eccept one russian woman who speak fluant somali.when the fishermen realised western are damping the wested in our rich sea, they knew they should volenteer,__americans and russians knew that they were right to valenteer, that is when russians start to show to americans they have one bloodvodka sucker somaliman in the embassy, whom they can use him as they wanted against our country men, this barbaric Russians should pay the price

    hahahaha. They not only are pirates but also liars and cinics. Your waters? Most of the hostages are captured in International water or even in other countries' water (i.e. Yemen, Seychelles and also Sri Lanka). Overfishing? Do the vessels overfish? Do the yatch overfish?

  • Hurray Russians

    Sorry Somaliland, Pirates are fair game, and race has no part in this. White or asian pirates would get blown up or executed the same way. These guys are taking on professional military forces of one of the strongest nations in the world. did they expect to get away with a slap and tickle? Russia has major problems, but none of them have any bearing on this issue. If you travel the world, you will see there are serious problems in every country, there is no magical promised land. Lies and corruption exist everywhere there is power to be sold and greed to fester among those who exercise power.

    Russians have a healthy disregard for political correctness and for pragmatism, when something bad happens, they get the job done in the most straightforward way possible. As a former US Marine who served with Allied forces trying to stabilize your pile of shit country, I salute them for protecting thier people the right way.
    You can live by the rule of law, and be protected under it, but you cant live as a criminal and then cry when your victims defend themselves.

    • Robs

      Apparently they don't see themselves as pirates.

      Their point is that some companies took advantage of the political situation in Somalia (civil wars, absence of navy, etc..) to operate recklessly in their territorial waters : overfishing, toxic waste dumping etc… Diminishing fishing resources and outrage led those former fishermen to find other ways of subsistance. Of course criminal gangs found a new "market" and now piracy is seen as a common way of living in Somalia.

  • Skinny Joe

    Lot of mad skinnies in this thread. While I agree with the assessment that the Russian sailors are quite unprofessional and probably a bit ill-disciplined, they got the job done, eliminated some 'fishermen' (interesting use of AKs to catch fish), and freed their ship. More of the same from everyone involved please, that number of captive ships would drop to 0 pretty lively.
    It's nothing to do with hatred for Africans either, the Russians don't care what opposes them, they'll simply level the obstacle, just like the war in Chechnya.

    The Republic of Somaliland must forcefully protest the Russian governments execution of the Somali Pirates. While they are citizens of neighboring Somalia we as Somalilanders can not accept that fellow Somalis from other countries get massacred by foreign navies just because they are black and from a poor country, if we don't protest this then all Somalis are at danger from Djibouti, Somaliland, Itoobiya, Kinya etc. Shame on the Russian Government for its anti-African policies.

    • Jackman55

      Somalians are NOT being executed for being BLACK! Somalian pirates are being executed because they are breaking international laws and the Russian Navy has every right to protect the property of their citizens as all civilaized countries do….Quit playing the Black card, this has been old news with no basis for at least the last 50 years and most of the educated people of the world are now tired of hearing this weak argument! Had the country of Somalia had actually educated their people rather than stayed in tribal communities for so long Somalia would probably not be dominated by these pirate thugs with no respect for laws. I hope all these Somali pirates are killed because they are the real problem for the Republic of Somaliland. Oh by the way, there is no republic in Somaliland!

    • Headman56

      They were not killed because they were black and from a poor country. They were killed because they hijacked a Russian vessel and took the crew hostage and then the Russians had to storm the boat to get their people back. If those pirates had surrendered when they first saw the Russians coming, they probably would not have been killed. But they did not. Russia has never made a secret about how they handle such hostage situations. Remember what they did in Chechnia. Piracy has almost always been dealt with harshly.

    • Mohammed bin Yusuf

      Russia did the right thing. So should all other countries. There is only one way to deal with pirates. History has taught us this lesson, that is the only way to remove the evil.
