Y-Net Has the Scoop on the Missing/Found Russian Ship, Arctic Sea

A Ynet investigation revealed Wednesday that the hijacking of the Russian vessel 'Arctic Sea' was ordered by the Russian government. The Kremlin has so far kept silent on the matter, after having arrested the alleged hijackers on August 18 and charging them with kidnapping and piracy. It has made no comment on reports speculating Israel was behind the deed, and Jerusalem has followed suit.

Apparently, private Russian businessmen sold S-300 and X-500 missiles to Iran, which were on the ship. When the Kremlin got wind of the deal (probably from Mossad), they sent a special unit to "hijack" their own ship and recover the missiles, which were stashed under a shipment of lumber.
