Anyone know if they did go all the way ?

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    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.

    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.
