The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation confirmed that all 11 Russian sailors who were crews of tankers attacked today in the Gulf of Oman were rescued by the coast guard of Iran. According to diplomats, all the saved are safe.


Iranians rescued Russians from tanker 11 attacked in the Gulf of Oman


Around 40, people taken from tankers attacked in the Gulf of Oman were taken by the coast guard of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the port city of Jask. In the course of screening procedures and establishing national identity, it turned out that the 11 of the rescued were Russians.

The Embassy of the Russian Federation is doing everything possible to return our citizens to their homeland.

- informs the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation.

Two tankers were attacked


Tankers from which the sailors were evacuated transported oil in the waters of the Gulf of Oman. The Iranian television channel Press TV reported that two explosions had thundered in the Gulf of Oman on Thursday morning. Norwegian tanker Front Altair, carrying 75.000 tons of oil, caught fire and sank, and a fire broke out on the second vessel, Kokuka Courageous, heading from Saudi Arabia to Singapore with a load of methanol on board.

The attack caused an increase in oil prices by 4%. As CNN later reported, sailors from the USS Bainbridge destroyer, the US Navy, found an unused magnetic mine fixed aboard one of the attacked tankers.

US accused of attacking Iran


Meanwhile, the United States directly accused Iran of organizing a ship bombing. Washington's opinion was voiced by the United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

According to Pompeo, at the next meeting of the UN Security Council, the United States is going to voice its accusations. According to the Secretary of State, in Washington they concluded that Iran was guilty by summing up intelligence data, information gathered on the course of the training, and also based on an investigation of previous attacks.

The US government believes that Iran is responsible for today's attacks on two tankers in the Gulf of Oman.

- the state secretary emphasized.

In addition, the United States said that information about the rescue of seafarers by Iranians could be a lie, since, for example, only the crew of the United States missile destroyer Bainbridge saved an 21 man. Pompeo also announced that, according to the White House, the attack on tankers was caused by Iran’s attempts to cause an increase in tension in the region.

              The suicide bomber was a citizen of Sweden. And a descendant of the Vikings! Mehdi Yezali, 33, of Algerian descent))
              On February 5, 2013, Bulgaria published an official report on the results of the investigation, which blamed the Hezbollah terrorist group.

                No investigation was conducted. Conclusion on the belonging of terrorists to Lebanese Hezbollah group - the Bulgarians made on the basis of a statement by the Prime Minister of Israel. There are no other grounds.

                    Once again, the investigation was not carried out! No evidence was presented, it was directly stated that the conclusions were drawn on the basis of the Israeli side.
                    I did not know who they wanted to please. And whom did the Bulgarians want to please by abandoning the South Stream ?! (now how bites your elbows). I think that the Bulgarian owner lives in Washington and wears a funny hairstyle.

                        May be! But if you "read", you should have noticed that before announcing the results of the "investigation", the Bulgarian Foreign Minister took the "draft investigation" to Israel! (If I remember it even exists on Wikipedia and the Israeli, and not without pride, press wrote about this, as well as Bulgarian publications)

                        Do you doubt that I read about it? Including in Israeli sources, which are proud, and so - the information about the investigation into the circumstances of your citizens' death on someone else’s territory should be taken by the “hospitable” owner of the scene - that's understandable)). In general, Mossad immediately gets into these matters, because Israel’s overseas attack has been a national pain point since Black September. It’s just that if the next “Brigade of Martyrs of the PGT Kryzhopol” did this, I don’t think the Israelis would hide it in order to tarnish the bright face of Hezbollah - everyone already knows that the next war with them, everyone remembers about the border with Lebanon in 2006, about Buenos Aires in 1994, well, in the zig-zag of the Nasralovskaya team, sho Israel is published in the open press, sho West is the question. On a fig Bulgarians / Jews to lie?

                        Well, you imagine (I do not say):
                        1. The terrorist attack was organized by the CIA, for them this is a normal scenario - and that Israel will break off the US’s relations with a country that guarantees their security in anger ?!
                        2. Terrorist attack - ki were filled by "loners" - Israel, of course, will kill them, and maybe their families. But why not blame Iran?
                        3. The terrorist attack was organized by the Saudis to once again push their enemies with their foreheads.

                        Neither the Bulgarian nor the Israeli side provided any evidence. You can fantasize as you like. The situation is exactly the same as with the Skripals.
                        In any case, why should Iran!
                        To get another sanction !?

                        1) The CIA in Bulgaria against the Israelis? Meaning? On the territory of the Russian Federation, China - is still understandable. And if it opens - given the Jewish-evangelical lobby in the States - there are consequences for intelligence, for the administration ...
                        2) Do you know how the Israelis got agitated at the assassination of Abu Jihad? Valnuli him in Tunisia, the Palestinians blame the Mossad, and the Jews to them-this is your internal showdown and conflict. Then all the Arabs began to laugh in the voice - if our soaked him, there would have been a murder not in front of the family, but with the family. So do not confuse Xionyun with Mujahiddin. hi
                        3) Saudis, Cathars, others - it’s quite possible for yourself. They financed most of the anti-Israeli attacks, it is. But why blame the already famous enemy, the Persians?
                        4) evidence - Natanyahu brought down Sulejmani with the IRGC, and eventually found on the bag, EMNIP, a DNA trait terrorist who trained at Hezbollah camp in Lebanon, was previously wanted in Europe. The CIA officers dug up on their own agents and issued that it was Hezbollah without any connection with the IRGC. They waited and avenged Mugnia, who was slammed by Mossad. The Bulgarian investigator, who chatted about the identities of the terrorists identified by Israeli experts along with the Bulgarian police, was fired. Etc. Those. the investigation was, sooner or later these guys would be killed.
                        5) And what about Iran? Why the hell did he have a terrorist attack in 1994? Why expose Hezbollah? They gave the Persian intelligence the go-ahead of Nasral for a terrorist attack and that’s all!

                        Reynold Gesner and Fritz Mandel, Max Warburg, Oscar Wasserman and Hans Privin, Gustav Krupp and J.P. Morgan - these Jews sponsored Hitler until 1944 - why would they! Then they organized Israel.
                        In their world, human life, even if Jewish, costs nothing.
                        Why do they need Israel? Certainly not for the Jews to find the "promised land" - this is just another hotbed of tension, a bridgehead for the seizure (control) of resources. They have long lived according to the Liote principle.

            The disaster over the Black Sea, which was forgotten due to the prescription of years, which resulted in the death of 78 from the Tel Aviv-Novosibirsk flight, has not yet found its logical conclusion. Having admitted her guilt, Ukraine did not pay compensation to the Russian airline Siberia in the amount of 15 million dollars, limiting itself to paying 200 000 dollars for each Israeli and Russian killed. Knock-knocked down, but we will not answer in full - this is in the style of the current policy of Kiev.

    But at the beginning of the XIX century, one congressman announced a formula, I don’t remember the exact quote, but roughly: for the sake of the interests of the US state, you can take any steps and measures. So they go to the set-ups, provocations, murders ... At the same time, by the state they mean not the people and the country, but the power elites.

    History teaches us.
    In the port of Havana, an American warship was blown up - the US-Spanish war began. They blamed Spain, although it was proved that the explosion occurred inside the ship.
    Further, the incident in the Gulf of Thin. The Vietnamese ship "fired" the American destroyer - the war in Vietnam began.
    Powers test tube at the UN, we all remember how it ended, no need to be reminded.
    To achieve its goals, the United States will not stop at nothing.
    Examples can probably be cited.

    TASS, June 13th. The incident with two tankers in the Gulf of Oman, which were allegedly attacked, "suspiciously coincided" with the visit of the Prime Minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe, to Iran. The attention was paid to this fact on Thursday by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic Javad Zarif.
    “We are seriously worried about this incident, which suspiciously coincided with the visit of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to Tehran,” Al Mayadeen quoted Zarifa as saying.
    The minister blamed the United States for "intensifying the economic war against Iran."

    Hundreds of Hollywood films, computer games inspire the whole world that only the United States has underwater saboteurs, and even all as one Rambo. Which can mine the ship on the go. We believe well. Now how do you explain the presence of your ship near the scene? As soon as he appeared there, it immediately happened. And before that there were no such cases, with such a handwriting.

        Most recently, a statement was released in the United States by independent researcher Matthew Aide, who specializes in the history of the National Security Agency (US intelligence agency and counterintelligence), that key intelligence about the incident in the Gulf of Tonkin in 1964, which served as the reason for the US invasion of Vietnam, was falsified. The basis was the report of the NSA staff historian Robert Heynok, compiled in the 2001 year and declassified on the basis of the Freedom of Information Act (adopted by Congress in the 1966 year). It follows from the report that the NSA officers made an unintentional mistake in translating the information received as a result of the radio interception. Senior officers, who discovered the mistake almost immediately, decided to hide it by correcting all the necessary documents so that they indicated the reality of the attack on the Americans. High-ranking officials repeatedly referred to these false data in their speeches.

    because there is no logic in it.
    Why should Iran knock a tanker off its shores and still be silent?
    On the contrary, if he wanted to make a statement, then he had to say right away - this is us, etc.
    And quietly knocking them out there is no reason.
    In general, this is someone’s setup.
    And given that the Americans were spinning alongside, and no one has the CIA but the USA, it is highly likely that the Americans organized a provocation.

        Iran? Benefit = 0. There, with all the fanaticism, they are not in power, they know how to count moves. The United States has benefits, and therefore I SUSPECT them and do not blame them. It’s also beneficial for Israel to get Iran into her full ass and there are several players nearby who can also benefit.

        and what to argue about? You accuse them of what they refused, on the basis of indirect owls, spanned by a globe. But I think it's too early to draw conclusions. Iran has no real motive to do so, but there are real motives for substituting it with its neighbors. The question is, is the American base far from the place of attack?
        and about "not so long ago"
        during this time, the United States unleashed a war in Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Iraq, bankrupted almost all of South America, took Venezuela into a tight blockade, deployed missile defense in Europe and Korea, advanced NATO to the east, and set up bases in Asia.
        And Iran at that time all that was done was to supply the Hezbollah with clashes with Israel
        Well, which one wants conflict more?

          again, cite - where do I blame them?

          if you do not see the motives - this does not mean that they are not.

          during this time the USA
          fine! Now you can do anything you want and blame the United States.

          And Iran at that time all that he did was the little things


          the little things hezbollah. on the little things of the Hussites.

          Life is a chain, and little things in it are links. The link cannot be ignored (c)

    Bleed Saudi Arabia and Iran

    the US has a simpler goal - to get a formal reason for building up pressure.
    what could be better than showing that Iran is a terrorist?
    and the USA are in a hurry, because believe that Iran is close to creating nuclear weapons.

    History teaches us.
    In the port of Havana, an American warship was blown up - the US-Spanish war began. They blamed Spain, although it was proved that the explosion occurred inside the ship.
    Further, the incident in the Gulf of Thin. The Vietnamese ship "fired" the American destroyer - the war in Vietnam began.
    Powers test tube at the UN, we all remember how it ended, no need to be reminded.
    To achieve its goals, the United States will not stop at nothing.
    Examples can probably be cited.

    You forget how mattresses squeezed Texas from Mexico and Pearl_Harbor when the Aianossians suddenly went to sea, and the rest were without a trace. Even the Pilots.
