The Somali pirates are not content that the process of paying the ransom for the Ukrainian crew of the ship "Faina" is lasting too long. About this reports UNIAN with reference to a source in Mogadishu. According to a source in Somalia, the ransom is 3.5 million USA dollars and "it was discussed for a week, but is not clear why the transfer of money is delayed," a source reports in Somalia.

But earlier the Internet edition «Navy bulletin» reported that on December 5 a ship was directed with the ransom sum for the pirates, but it is not known now exactly if the money was passed to the pirates or not. "Obviously, the ransom was not passed and it is clear from the notes of the pirates, who are not satisfied that the payment of the ransom is delayed. We do not stop praying for our boys and trust that God’s hand of help will be more effective than human [hands].” So said Fr. Olexander Kenez, director of the service of marine chaplains of the UGCC in Australia.
