Somali Pirates: "No force" (Maybe) Says Russia in Ukraine tank ship matter

Russia's soon-to-arrive naval presence off Somlia - a single frigate- is arriving with a limitation - Russia will not use force in pirates saga:
Russia has no intention of using force against the pirates who have hijacked a Ukrainian ship loaded with arms claimed by Kenya, the Russian news agency Interfax reported.

“The questions of freeing the ships and crew are being dealt with in line with the corresponding international practices,” Interfax quoted Navy spokesman Igor Dygalo as saying, according to CNN.Com.

“For understandable reasons, the use of force would be an extreme measure because it could threaten the life of the international crew of the ship.”
