The Russians captured the Pirates, tied them up, put them on their boats, then set them all on fire. No more pirates. Plus, probably no more Somali pirates attacking Russian ships. This video shows Russian Navy commandos on a Somalia pirate ship shortly after the pirates had captured a Russian oil tanker.
All conversations 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. 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 hanged.

anyone speak Russian care to translate a bit ?
At least one leader knows how to deal with pirate vermin. Wished it was ours.
If the US would do that, maybe it would work
Were they shouting Allah Akbar when the ship went down?
It’s not just piracy (although it is), it’s the long history of Islamic banditry, totally sanctioned.
Yeah.....I wish we had one of them presidents.
YES!!! Gotta look to foreign countries for feel good, terrorist-fighting stories such as this, anymore.
So they took the pirates back to the Russian ship, then placed them aboard their original ship, and then blew it up? Doesn’t look very efficient.
I remember when that happened. Good old fashioned street justice.
I suspect the Russians wanted to search the pirate’s boat for any goodies before they blew it up.
The pirates are both Black and Muslim. That means that we practically worship them in America.
if Nancy Pelosi was in charge,she would of captured the pirates,sent them to DC,put them up in a local Motel 6,and register them as Democrats.
Doesnt look very efficient.

The bottom line works for me.
They didn’t need to understand Russian and the Russians didn’t need to understand Somalian.
But the message was received loud and clear and if nothing else, one ‘Pirate Crew’ will no longer be a plague on the ‘Seven Seas’.
The only thing I’d do differently is use bacon grease for ignition. I know, I know, it’s precious bacon grease; however, the global impact is well worth the sacrifice.
Any oldie but goodie video. Nothing in the past several years.
This one is also pretty good:
I liked the one with the two mercs contractors who do a really good job “firing warning shots”
warning shots..! Heh-heh..!!
This is the way all terrorists should be dealt with as well, under the law of piracy.
