    What the hell :confused: This was a Japanese fishing boat of some sort? Those Russians getting a little hot-headed?

    This is silly. Russia owes those poor fishermen a new boat and lost wages.

    Even if they were illegally fishing in Russian waters and refused to stop when told to by legal authorities?

    And this is clearly nothing new. It's happened 7 other times in the past 12 years, only those times the shots only injured people.
