Somalia: Pirates Deny Food for Russian Captives
The livelihood situation for Russian sailors on board a ship captured by pirates off Somalia’s coast last month is deteriorating sources said.
The captain of the German-owned Lehmann Timber ship was able to contact his family, and his father says the sailors have no food, no fresh water and no medical aid.
“The pirates are tired of waiting for a ransom from the ship owner. So they vent it on the crew members. The seamen have been lying without moving for days on end now,” says Vladimir Bartashev, captain’s father.
The ship, seized three weeks ago, could run out of fuel within two days.
Besides the fifteen-man crew from Russia, Ukraine, Estonia and Myanmar, there are about 25 pirates on board.
Reports suggest some of the pirates are constantly under the influence of drugs and they’re starting to squabble with each other.
The ship’s owner has reportedly collected money demanded by the pirates and is now looking into ways of delivering the ransom, as time is crucial to the success of the rescue operation.

What really pisses me off is that pirates in Africa kidnap people constantly, and the dumbass shipping agencies refuse to arm the ship’s crews to DEFEND THEMSELVES. These Somali pirates are no different than the jihadists in Iraq, Afghanistan and Gaza. When faced with armed opposition they die. So they pick on the defenseless.
