Arctic Sea: in re Viktor Matveev
Is Viktor Matveev alive? Most likely he is well and living in Switzerland. here
You might ask Igor Shumik, merely because he is available -in the sense that pirates have got him and he will be released. here
Let's review in simplest terms. The bad guys in the Russian military and regional entrepreneurs exported AA missiles to Iran in the Arctic Sea. That's the common story. The good guys in the Moscow establishment got them back or at least stopped the shipment. One would think that Viktor was hired by the bad guys, but maybe the good guys, or maybe he is a simple ex-Navy man who came into some money.
If you really, really want to know, ask the Federal Prosecution Investigation Committee. here
