An interesting detail of the recent S-300-for-Iran story keeps popping up on Russian and Finnish forums. Another ship left the base right after the Ladny frigate (which was sent to chase MV Arctic Sea). Two Russian Navy ships passed through the Strait of Gibraltar, the frigate and some transport ship. This is something that Estonian Admiral Kouts mentioned, but it somehow fell through the cracks. Now, that second ship was seen hanging around the Arctic Sea, too. The $1M question: what was it doing there? I understand sending a frigate to intercept an allegedly hijacked freighter, but sending along a transport?
Welcome to FRee Republic. Perhaps some links to the story would help us understand what your point is.
Sounds like somebody working out of Russia wants to move more aggressively than the Big Boss.
