Breaking: Russian yacht HIJACKED by North Korea!

I didn’t see this one anywhere else here on ATS…

– tensions threaten to explode in the region

Apparently a Russian yacht has been seized and its crew detained in the Sea of Japan. Will be interesting to see how the Russians react to this.

RUSSIAN officials are checking bombshell claims a yacht with three crew on board was “hijacked or arrested” by a North Korean ship.

A VHF radio message from the Katalexa was received from the vessel in the Sea of Japan.

It reported that the yacht “was hijacked, or arrested, by a North Korean ship”, said Russian maritime expert Mikhail Voytenko .

Since the Wednesday message, no further communication has been heard from the vessel.

Russian Yacht Hijacked

Will Putin just let this slide and resolve it quietly through back channels, or will they publically put a giant Russian boot in the backside of Kim
and his regime?

Might be interesting to see this one unfold.

I did some brief searching on the interwebz for a picture of the Katalexa and all I found are some pictures of a 35′ +/- sailboat. Certainly does not
appear to be the run of the mill Russian spy ship by any stretch.
