Arctic Sea Caper Gets Weirder

Yesterday came news that a Russian naval ship had transferred the 15 Russian crewmembers to the island of Sal where they would be flown to mother Russia:
He said all members of the Russian crew were "alive, healthy and are not under armed guard."
There was no mention of captured hijackers or anyone else. Today comes this update:
Russia said Tuesday that it has detained eight suspected hijackers aboard the cargo ship that went missing near the English Channel this month, but it offered few details to explain the maritime mystery that has captivated Europe for weeks.
Apparently the ship's whereabouts were known for most of the time it was considered 'missing', which should be rather obvious in our technical day and age. And apparently those Spetsnaz commandos are pretty good--capturing the ship without a shot fired. The question now might be exactly where and when they did it. So let the conspiracies begin!

Maybe the silence on the chain of events is directly related to the real cargo that was being transported?

Just thinking out loud, again.
