Going on the Account: What’s Russian for “Raise the Colors and Engage”?

Looks like the Modern Age of Piracy has gotten so intense that the Russians are sending a frigate to Somalia to fight pirates preying on routes between Odessa and Kenya.  Frankly, the fact that these pirates ended up with 33 T-72 tanks as part of their booty is a scary thought to contemplate; this may not be the richest haul anyone plying the Sweet Trade has ever netted, but it has to be one of the most useful and potentially deadly.
