Missing Russian Ship

Right out of a Tom Clancy novel, a 4,000 tonne cargo ship is missing. Reportedly, this ship had nothing worth hijacking. There are not a lot of facts about this available but there are some interesting bits:
  1. 10 armed men boarded the ship about a week before it disappeared. They left 12 hours later.
  2. The ship spent two weeks in Kaliningrad before beginning its voyage.
  3. The Russians are searching for the ship with all available resources.
As reported here, the Russians have battlefield nuclear weapons in Kaliningrad.

I wish the Russians good luck in their search and I hope the NATO forces provide all available resources to assist.
