35 Russian Struggle With Somalian Pirates

Russian Struggle With Somalian Pirates

The photos below show how the Somalian pirates have been struggled by Russian naval forces  for the last several years.

Somalian pirates belong to modern armed groups that capture foreign ships next to the Somalian coast and demand for redemption.

Naval forces of Russia, India and some other countries patrol the Gulf of Aden to prevent the crime.

On November 7 2009 Dutch ship CEC Future with 11 Russian citizens was captured by the pirates.

The pirates sailed close to that ship.

That time the pirates were paid and no military intervention was used.

A small plane got the redemption.

The criminals counted the money and sailed away in an unknown direction.


The sum is not mentioned but it is known that they usually ask for 1-2 mln US dollars.

The Russian ship accompanies the saved vessel in its trip to Oman.

The Russian nuclear-powered cruiser arrests three vessels with pirates.

10 Somalian citizens were taken aboard.


The arrested people had a G-3 rifle, an AK-47 gun, and 2 AKMS assault rifles.

They also had drugs, large amount of money, a bag with rice and a bag with sugar.

The pirates were under the influence of drugs.



The Russian tanker Moscow University was captured by pirates on May 5, 2010. There were 23 Russian passengers aboard. The crew had to take 86 tones of petroleum to China and was saved by another Russian ship Marshall Shaposhnikov.

The pirates were first arrested and then redeemed due to lack of evidence.

    that’s not enough, if only they could carpet-bomb the whole country too …

  2. Ham are sick, Al says:

    There was a viral video of Russian justice when somalian pirates were arrested. They were later rounded up, bound to their vessel and they blew up and sank the vessel with the terrorists on board! Now that’s justice!

  3. cro says:

    Ho Ho Ho and a bottle of rum!!! No walking on the board for captured pirates? Or hanging from the mast? Damn, there is no fun today, only “Parley” like pirates say 😉

    No wooden leg no pirate :0)

  5. Steamed McQueen says:

    The story I heard was that after Russia retrieved it’s citizens the pirates were set adrift in their boat and then were blown out of the water by Russian troops. Seem to recall seeing a video of the same but can’t recall the link.

  6. Daniel says:

    Pirates should be hanged at sea, That is how it was done in the old days and it stopped piracy.

  7. shivtik says:

    They look like shark food too me, A simple act as walking the plank would work for me !

  8. karadakid says:

    I can’t blame the pirates, I really can’t. I’d probably do the same if I was in that situation. The extreme poverty and blight is difficult for your typical person to imagine.

      Right, American started some years ago a civil war in Somalia. After they destroyed the state there is chaos no jobs and people got to do such things to feed their families.

      • dmitri says:

        America in Somalia, Russia in Afghanistan, all big countries do the same shit. I’m pretty happy to live in a small and neutral state, which isn’t responsible for all these atrocities, like you Americans, Russians and all else.

      • too much vodka says:

        The Americans started a civil war? The civil war started when the communist regime of Somalia was ousted by several clans aided by Ethiopia and Libya. I don’t see much American involvement there.

    • asdfasd says:

      You can’t blame the pirates? I’m all for empathy but when the “poor” pirates start taking people hostages to get monay for food (LOL!!)) that’s where it ends.

      Your values are misplaced.

  9. moo says:

    Struggling with pirates? This inst Yahoo why make misleading headlines?

  10. George Johnson says:

    How long as we going to keep paying them millions of dollars, to not attack us? (and then acting surprised when they DO keep attacking?). Pirates should be delt with, and severely, and soon.

  11. (r)evolutionist says:

    Future Oakland Raiders players.

  12. robin yates says:

    short and sweet reply.. shoot them !

  13. the man says:

    For centuries the west have been steeling those people fortunes, their oil, diamonds, rubber and left them nothing but hunger, famine and starvation, and now you want to hang them at sea ?

  14. popalumi says:

    Nu stiu ce sa spun.Cind vad si piratii astia cit de prapaditi sunt…Unde e capul?

  15. Truthteller says:

    Feed the sharks with these sub-humans. even though I pity the sharks

  16. GRV says:

    disgustingly unprofessional in the Russian Navy, and I’m not talking about the treatment of pirates: Look at those “uniforms”! Ridiculous

  17. gdfsgsdfg says:

    Pathetic, can you imagine American navy personnel dressed like that!?!?!?

  18. ert says:

    Well the one thing i like about Russia: they do not give shit on pirates, they don’t need uniforms, long proceses. Russian jail is harsh and intimidating – that it is what good for such criminals.

    • eric says:

      I agree, I whish american prisons were like that in russia. then people would act responsibly and realize that gangs aren’t cool, just bands of lowlifes with no future.

  19. aswang says:

    These pirates should have shot on site. There is no rule of engagement when fighting the criminals.

  20. Les. Hayward says:

    Go to it Russia – nice work.

  21. somaliboy says:
