Anyone know if they did go all the way ?

How about that - The Russians captured the Pirates, tied them up, put them on the boats, then set them all on fire-puff no more Pirates!


This video shows Russian Navy commandos on a Somalian pirate ship shortly after the pirates had captured a Russian oil tanker. The Euro Union navy that patrols these waters would not interfere because they feared there could be casualties.

All explanations are in Russian with a single exception of when a wounded pirate says something in English and the Russian soldier says "This is not a fishing boat". All conversations between the commandos are in Russian. If you don't understand Russian, the pictures speak for themselves.

The soldiers freed their compatriots and the tanker. The Russian Navy Commandos moved the pirates back to their own (pirate) ship, searched the pirate ship for weapons and explosives and then they left the ship and exploded it with all remaining pirates hand-cuffed to it.
The commandos sank the pirate ship along with the pirates and without any court proceedings, lawyers etc. That is, they used the anti-piracy laws of the 18th and 19th centuries where the captain of the rescuing ship has the right to decide what to do with the pirates. Usually, they were hung.

I would think from now on, Russian ships will not be targets for Somali pirates.

It has been revealed that Russia released 29 pirates held off the Somali coast to Iran and Pakistan three weeks ago, saying there was no legal basis to try them in Russia.

“The pirates were handed over to representatives of Iran and Pakistan after an investigation that lasted about a week,” Interfax news agency quoted a source in the General Headquarters of the Russian Navy.

The pirates were captured in April by the Russian warship Admiral Panteleyev 15 miles east of the Somali coast. They were reportedly planning to capture a tanker with a Russian crew. A source in the country’s military said the warship’s captain had interrogated the detainees. “You can't hold almost thirty foreign citizens on a Russian military ship forever,” the source said...

What's the reason for the early learner font size Roger?

The film doesn't appear to follow the narrative. The pirates seem to be on the warship sitting on a cargo net prior to their mothership (if that's what it is) being ahem, exploded.

And it's been done on RR several times with a fair amount of dribbling from some call signs.
