So apparently a Russian cargo ship went missing in the North Atlantic over 2 weeks ago and this is the first anyone is hearing about it. Supposedly it was carrying almost 2 million dollars worth of Finnish timber and supposedly they had repelled a hijacking attempt earlier in their voyage. Now they've vanished and nobody knows where to, and non-Russian naval authorities have claimed to have seem the vessel at times since their reported disappearance.
NOW practically the whole Russian navy is out looking for this thing, which begs the question: why would Russia, a country still wallowing in some of the First World's most dire economic straits, expend such vast resources to look for a ship that only contained like 10 sailors and 2 million dollars worth of timber?
Unless it wasn't timber at all...
Seriously, it's not in Russia's nature to execute a dynamic search effort for such a small number of people, they just don't care that much...there has to be ulterior motive

I pictured myself in a Denver bar that night, with all the gang, and in their eyes I would be strange and ragged like the Prophet who has walked across the land to bring the dark Word, and the only Word I had was 'Wow!'"
