            Half of the world's ships sail under the flag of Panama, and the remaining half fly under the flag of Liberia. And only a few vessels (compared to the total mass) sail under the national flags. What is the problem? The only thing that sailors have Russian passports. And this is work for other departments. (Ministry of Foreign Affairs, FSB, Armed Forces, fleet and so on). Let them practice.

            This is not GDPR policy. This is the policy of Yeltsin and Gorbachev. In Russia there was this whole series of "Senators" in the amount of 10 container ships. I worked on exactly the same one. And they were sold precisely under Yeltsin. They were part of the Russian Sovcomflot. With GDP, Sovcomflot began to feel more confident. Although now - under external pressure - development has slowed down a little. And it was Yeltsin who signed the documents allowing Russian sailors to work "under the flag" and not VVP. And it was under Yeltsin that the barbaric sale of ships of all shipping companies for a penny was carried out. "Saints" 90s ... With GDP, the fleet is being built. And it was under him that many sailors were able to find work for the good of Russia. And the whole world works under the flags of convenience, including the fleet of the Americans, Japanese and Europeans. This is a business. By the way, MSC ships have armed guards. But they take it mainly for the passage of the pirate-dangerous area in the Indian Ocean. In this case, Mandy is slovenly. There is a citadel protected from pirate attacks in the tiller compartment. If this zvizdobratiya with weapons climbed aboard, it means only one thing - the watch did not rush as it should have been. Spit on the bridge, in short. Slept the pirates. Although, Mandy isn't there the first time. And everyone on it knows what kind of place it is, where a person's life is worth nothing. And this is far from the first case of sloppiness at MSC. In 2010, not far from the island of Madagascar, an executive from Ukraine left the bridge without his presence there, and went to photograph the work done on the deck during the day. The pirates jumped up. The crew worked "in the field". As a result, no one warned the people in time. Shooting started, people somehow crawled to the superstructure and buried there. To the captain, two shots from the RPG flew into the cabin. He had jumped out of there seconds before. They were lucky then. The muddle around the perimeter helped, and active maneuvering, plus the third assistant from Ishmael crawled on his belly under bullets - he opened the horns on the fire main, which were not open due to carelessness, that is, the ship was not properly prepared for irrigating the pirates with sea water. But, then the third opened all this, water began to flow. The captain stood on the bridge under the bullets and commanded the maneuvering of the MSC Peggy container ship, which saved her then. And, as usual, the reason is sloppiness. One left the bridge, the second closed the fire horns. We ourselves create problems for ourselves, and then we heroically fight it all ...

              And to each pirate to personally explain this? Explain the inevitability of retaliation to hyenas, convince them that people can’t be eaten by the example of the execution of relatives, I am sure they will understand you. Russia, with special forces and fleet, knows where the hell, and their native kings who cut the throat for disobedience are nearby, and it’s useless to liquidate the kings, as there’s no holy place. Clear the coast with nuclear bombs, and ISIS and UA are the best way out for idiots at the same time.

          Benin at the other end of the world and there are no ships within walking distance.

          On the other hand, this is the high point for 22160. It was for this that they built it (patrolling distant sea / ocean areas, autonomy for 60 days, actions against irregular forces, landing of Special Forces groups). It's time to show your best qualities. But he should go 10 000km to Benin.

            And when was the last time there was a case of the rescue of our hostages by special forces? After all, it’s not just that you need to land and you need to put all the pirates in, and rescue your guys. It is possible that they will even be kept in different places. To do this, you must first find all these places, and then carry out a simultaneous operation. For this you need agents, do we have it in this remote country? Maybe when I was, but now I doubt it Yes and pirates will be alarmed by the approach of our ship to these remote places. There, it’s not just village fishermen who are engaged in such matters. They are usually bought out /// according to world practice ///. I am sure that I.D. Evdokimov, our ambassador in Benin /// and part-time in Togo /// is already tightly trying to establish a channel of communication with the pirates. Or maybe they themselves have already found it.
            If only the case was not political, staged by one of the states hostile to us. Then it’s only an assault, but it’s better to enter the country from land via Nigeria or Ghana /// in transit through Togo ///. Call in under the guise of tourists, hunters or business specialists, but only evacuation by helicopters and immediately to the ship.

                By the way, nearby Nigeria is famous for its pirates and it is possible that these were just from there, flying.

      It’s also constant. A well-known case when our fellow countryman was returned (Valery Zubitsky) is the standard procedure
      the shipowner, the Swiss company Massoel Shipping, was negotiating with the pirates about the redemption of sailors. Obviously, they paid some amount of money.
      And more recently, on the shores of Nigeria on October 27, pirates captured the ship Pomerania Sky, on board of which there were 8 Poles, 2 Filipinos and a Ukrainian
      According to the RCC, consular departments of the Russian Federation in Nigeria and Benin are engaged in the release of abducted Russians.
      According to the International Maritime Bureau, the year before last, 180 cases of piracy and armed robbery occurred on ships worldwide. These numbers are dominated by pirates from Nigeria.
      This case is one of many
      all captured six crew members (all citizens of the Russian Federation). Interfax reports.
      A year ago (February 5, 2017) in the same bay, an incident with the BBC Caribbean vessel - 8 sailors (7 Russians and 1 Ukrainian) were captured. And this despite the return fire 2 motorboats still captured.
      Last time, the shipowner company, the consulates of Ukraine and the Russian Federation in Nigeria dealt with this issue.
      This time it will be similar.
      No rockets, calibers, nuclear weapons and joyful screams from the sofas .. Routine work for consulates and shipowners. It is their job and duty.

    The representative of the Russian Embassy in Benin, in conversation with TASS, in turn, noted that they are checking information on the citizenship of sailors abducted off the coast of Benin. According to Russian diplomats in the General Staff of the Benin Navy, 26 people were on the ship attacked by pirates: 20 Russians, four Ukrainians and two Georgian citizens.

    Not the fact that they still abducted ours.

        The Gulf of Guinea is the most dangerous place in the world for shipping due to the increased activity of pirates. Moreover, if pirates used to be attracted primarily by cargo, then cases of hostage taking have become more frequent since last year. The seizure of goods (in particular, pumping oil) in connection with the patrolling of ships has become more troublesome. In addition, with the fall in prices for this product, stealing oil has become less profitable.
        Armed security does not always cope. The case I described above was just guarded. Shootout and hostages taken anyway. The wire also does not save from higher stairs.

                The fact of the matter is that they evade taxes in this way, registering in any Panama-Liberia, and the state should save them? If I were Putin, I would oblige ship owners with Russian passports to re-register such ships in Russia. All responsibility should fall on them. Let them be responsible for the flag of convenience. I see that many people do not like my opinion, let them convince me of what I am wrong.

      Your comment suggests that you generally do not know anything about the merchant fleet, after the collapse of the USSR. Neither about shipowners with passports of the Russian Federation, nor about problems sailing only on ships flying the flag of the Russian Federation, nor about multinational crews, people of different citizenships, different religions, nationalities. Yes, they swear on the ship, it can be different, but people are ready to come to the rescue, throw a circle and climb into the fire. So they divide people, hang up labels and set some on others. You famously disowned fellow citizens. It’s sad that you have such an opinion about Russian sailors.

        I did not disown them. Those who, according to yours, disowned them:
        "shipowners with RF passports."
        Our State Duma has not adopted a law on offshore companies. All claims against them and shipowners. You just need to force them to legislatively pay for the measures to save our citizens from the pocket of these, as you said, shipowners, and not from the pocket of the state. And they want Fanta to drink, and hand over the bottles. And all - for free. So my position is clearer?

          ,, here and let silently sniff in two holes ,, .-- disowned.
          ,, Our State Duma has not adopted a law on offshore companies. - What does this have to do with the fight against piracy? The Russian and October islands are being prepared for offshore, if they have not already accepted it, I will not look for information.
          ,, make legislatively pay for the rescue of our citizens ,, -
          Rescuing people is the responsibility of all who have signed and are doing the legal right. The shipowner does not violate anything, pays taxes.
          ,, catching convenient flags, they don’t pay taxes to the treasury ,,, - Even in the days of the USSR there were ,, convenient flags, ”and foreigners used this shipowner, but since our entire fleet was state-owned, the result is simple. Now the state has nothing, everything is private in the Russian Federation.
          ,, And the fact that you need to feed your family is a weak excuse. ,, - again disowned, in fact, unemployment in the country, and if you have a pension and you are indifferent, then all the sailors of the Russian Federation will not have enough companies where ships under the flag of the Russian Federation. It is difficult for a graduate without blat and work experience, just like an aged sailor, to go on a flight. The owner where he wants there and the port of registry at the ship. Why there is no fleet under the flag of the Russian Federation for all sailors - questions to the government.
          ,, First, someone else’s flag, then someone else’s passport - and now your Russian has slowly turned into a non-Russian one. ,,-rave. There is no other word.
          .. But on the ship going under the flag of the USA they will beware to attack ..- They rob everyone. Although you want to google someone they capture. Here, a man already cited an example above in komente- Cro-Magnonets (Trofim) January 5, 2019 15:54
          ..And the pirates, I think they know very well that a vessel, for example, flying the flag of Moldova, ..- does not always have a flag at a passing ship at the stern, this is not a call to the port when it will be aft, plus no wind in Africa time. and how do you view the flag from a distance? ,, ... that on the night of January 1 to 2, 2019 ... ,, - here the ship is in drift and whether the flag is visible and whether deck lighting is on - I do not know what to tell you.
          ,, And we will also wipe ourselves away. ,, - all questions to the government. In 18 they wrote that a sailing ship for the Navy would be built. Plavicens on a sailing boat with a future naval officer? And such an officer will have experience? The Navy has examples of accidents, and I think it depends on training and experience, and marine practice.
          ,, And then they want to drink Fanta and hand over the bottles. And all - for free. So my position is clearer ?, - Your reasoning is a person far from the fleet, specifically - the merchant fleet. There are no freebies in the Russian Federation, they cut off almost everything, and I am not writing about this topic.

        I want to add. With this vicious circle, one must end long ago. Shipowners, catching convenient flags, do not pay taxes to the treasury, and the Navy receives rather strange small-tonnage vessels of unknown destination due to lack of money. I hate the picture when our sailors of the Navy fly the ship under the Russian flag, and that one hoists the Panama flag, and taps further. If they don’t care which flag to fly under, then I don’t care. And the fact that you need to feed the family is a weak excuse. First, someone else’s flag, then someone else’s passport - and now your Russian has slowly turned into a non-Russian one. And the pirates, I think they know very well that Moldova, for example, going under the flag of Moldova, will not be freeing. But on the ship going under the flag of the United States attack they will beware. So ours will be constantly captured. And we will also wipe ourselves.

    The similarity of this:
    http://www.msecurity.ru/rus/page186/
    I think that the possibility of obtaining (necessary in the long run for piracy) the necessary information from such Internet resources is available.

    data is verified with the resource https://www.marinetraffic.com/

    So we have potential ships for piracy.
    It remains to "check" the data of the vessel for the presence of protection.

      The cargo ship “MSC Zoe” lost up to 270 containers near the island of Borkum (Germany).
      The waves, however, nailed the wreckage of a shipwreck on an island in the Netherlands.
      According to the laws of the Netherlands, shipwreck fragments can be appropriated to anyone who finds them.


      Here are the people-residents (and not only) of the Dutch islands and get some fun.

      Moreover, the official authorities of the Netherlands not only do not prune this type of looting, but also:
      "Following the accident of the MSC Zoe, the Dutch judicial system has opened an investigation into the incident. The prosecutor wants to investigate possible violations of environmental regulations."

          A rhetorical question.

          Received differently:
          Together with 240 containers, cargoes with chemicals that were not entirely useful for human health were lost (in places, even very). Distributed this information through the media.
          They showed a picture of a chemistry bag that had arrived on the coast of the Dutch island.

          The company which owns the vessel contracted subcontractors for "cleaning up garbage on the coast"
          In search of chemistry, nailed on the coast, the military kingdoms of the Netherlands are involved.
          In general, the state can circumvent its own law, while neutralizing its negative consequences.

    The composition of the hostages is strange. For the captain, senior assistant and third assistant may require a substantial ransom. They will not demand a ransom from Russia, but from the MSC company, since it is very rich. And the Russian side, if they invest specialists in the matter, will also ask the same company for money to compensate for the costs. But rather, they will not send specialists. The princes are not great, and they work in a strange company. Although maybe in MSC there are pennies of Russian oligarchs.
    But the boatswain, the welder and the cook ... here's the question. What do these pirates have their own big ship? Do you get a team? Or is there already a team, only a welder and Russian-Ukrainian cuisine is not enough?

      Explore maritime laws at your leisure. Yes, unfortunately, NO firearms on civilian ships are foreseen (which is what pirates use). In the rarest cases, the captain has a gun in his personal safe, and it’s a hassle with him at customs inspections. Therefore, there are only hoses from the pirates, barbed wire on the sides, and, in close contact with the handle of the mops, cutting knives, axes, hooks, etc. (if possible, and if there is a desire).

      It is unfortunate that in the Gulf of Guinea, the long-standing maritime estate of the USSR, and indeed of modern Russia, maritime security is not ensured.
