The story of the Artic Circle hijacking keeps becoming more murky as the chronology is revealed. It was hijacked in the Baltic and the Russians, it appears, kept it a secret from Finland - where the ship is registered. Now there is speculation that the ship was hijacked twice - the second time after it had left the English Channel. Additional speculation is that it was heading for Algeria or Iran - although how it would pass Gibraltar, much less Suez or sail around the Cape of Good Hope - is left in the air.
Even more speculation is whose navy actually intercepted the ship, Russia or NATO and what was on it. Timber - yes, apparently. Nuclear materials? Missiles?
I suspect we will never know and that will feed the speculation.
