Russia forces storm oil tanker seized by Somali pirates.

Well done Ivan.

I suppose we cant do anything like that due to health and safety rules and the pirates human rights.

It seems to demonstrate degree of self-control for Russian forces, in the middle of nowhere, to restrict themselves to ventilating only one hijacker. Perhaps they had a British liaison officer on board.
 
As with other successful rescues, the crew had informed the authorities that they had secured themselves in a safe area and were not being held at gunpoint. But well done the Ruskies.

Somalians in Siberia......whatever next?

Personal view....they should get rid of them as soon as they are caught....that would send the message

They did it a few years ago with a pirate gang off Mozambique - put a target merchant vessel in an exposed anchorage followed by lots of fireworks one night and lots of floating dead pirates next morning - did the trick nicely from all accounts

HMS Chatham intercepts pirate mother ship
Daily Politics 19 Apr 2010 said:
Royal Navy warship HMS Chatham has intercepted a hijacked dhow, being used as a pirate mother ship, to the east of the Gulf of Aden and set free its kidnapped crew...

It's difficult enough trying to educate an ignorant media and public without worrying about someone purporting to be RN.

It seems when the Arabs kidnapped that complete tosser Terry Waite they also kidnapped two Russians,the Ruskies promptly kidnapped two high placed Arabs of the kidnappers faith and threatened to execute them if the Ruskies were not released.
They were next day and the job was done,meanwhile Waite and the others had to wait for years.
Don't mess about with the Russians/Israel or the SAS now it has come out that the MOD refused permission to rescue those captured two SAS troopers as the bigger picture was more important than these two lives,at least the Leaders took no notice.
Got to admire the Russians though.
We should learn from them in the current pirate situation.
 
Latest is the Russians have released the pirates

However------other quotes mentioned were that there was no international law to try them in Moscow etc. So they reverted to the historical way of
dealing with captured pirates .

Gang plank and walk come to mind.

Russia Frees Pirates It Seized Days Ago
New York Times 7 May 2010 said:
MOSCOW – Two days after Russian marines captured 10 Somali pirates in a much-ballyhooed high-seas shootout, freeing Russian crew members who had huddled for 20 hours in the dank safety of the engine room, Russia’s Defense Ministry on Friday announced an anticlimactic ending to the saga.

They put the pirates back on their boat and set them free.

“It is much easier to catch pirates than to decide what to do with them,†said Gen. Nikolai Y. Makarov, the chief of Russia’s general staff, in comments carried by the Interfax news service. What ensues, he said, is a series of headaches: Russian law provides no basis for detaining them, and when Russian forces release them to their home countries, they are frequently accused of human rights violations. “It is extremely difficult to handle such issues from a legal standpoint,†he said...
