Terrorists have suddenly captured Peter the Great, the only nuclear cruiser in the Russian Northern Fleet that can move without towing, and sometimes it even shoots. The famous ecological site, www.bellona.ru, informs that local security service officers successfully stormed the vessel and detained all of the terrorists onboard.
Director of the Federal Security Service department in the Northern Fleet Sergey Saukin told about the heroic deeds of the officers. He also added that the capture had been just ordinary training. The main idea behind the training was that the terrorists were extremely blood-thirsty and threatened to shoot thei hostages. Moreover, the “terrorists” demanded that their accomplices, who were kept in prisons at that time, be released. The security service officers made a desperate but correct decision: they stormed the cruiser, arrested the “terrorists," and their accomplices remained in prisons. What is really important, neither Peter the Great, nor the officers went down during the operation.
