Russian shipping is in the news for more than just the NEVA 2009 Exhibition. Reports surfaced today that a Russian tanker avoided a pirate attack in the Gulf of Aden. According to the crew of the Prisco Alexandra, pirates fired on the tanker and attempted to board it when the crew issued a distress alert and began taking evasive maneuvers. The pirates were never able to board or gain control of the ship.
