The Somali Folly: Russia Sends a Mothership...Or Is It Bait?



Gist: The Baltic Fleet tanker Yel'na sets sail for the shores of Somalia. There she will rendezvous with the escort ship Neustrashimyy which has been sent there to fight piracy. The tanker carries water, fuel and weapons for the escort ship. The ship is guarded by a detachment of marines armed with sniper rifles and heavy machine guns. They have orders not to allow pirates to get within shot range.

nothing like a ripe tanker as pirate bait to chum the waters off Somalia. Good luck and good hunting

That's pretty clever...maybe she is bait!

No she is not bait. If the Russians wanted to put out a bait ship they would use a regular commercial ship with no official connection to the Neustrashimyi and the operators it carries not just "marines", but assault force which could be used on the high sea or on land.

They are willing to sail into harms way and not be taken.
