Arctic Sea cargo flown back to Russia?
To fly the alleged pirates and the crew back to Moscow — a group of only 19 men — Russia dispatched two enormous military cargo planes. "The versions we are getting from the Russian government do not fit into any logical parameters, and I don't think that will change," commentator Latynina says. "When people lie, they tend to lie consistently."
The group boarded the plane at Amilcar Cabral airport, an Il-76, in widespread use for the delivery of outsized or very heavy cargo.
