  1. 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!

  2. 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 😉

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

      • 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.

      • 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.

    • 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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 ?

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

  8. 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.

    • 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.

  9. they stealing our natural reasors like oil,mines, asians fanishing our fish. western throwing millins tons of toxic in our sea,then you expect us to sit back and just watch what you doing to our ppl?now way guys that is not fear and not working. we will contineu parating kidnaping and even killing any body comes across our water that is MUST,then we i’ll see what you american and russians can do.
