Yes, I feel that in this case there was some level of corruption happening in the Baltic fleet. However, it needs to be investigated thoroughly. If the investigation shows no signs of corruptions, then no charges should be made. However, if a thorough investigation unveils corruption, then of course action needs to be taken.
In a surprising turn, the Prime Minister of Russia Vladimir Putin, who has constantly been accused of corruption, took measures against corruption. He fired almost all of the commanders in his Baltic fleet. This culling was long overdue and signals that Russia may have hit a turning point in how they deal with political corruption.
No, the commanders in the Baltic fleet were simply standing up for what they believed was right and were not corrupt. They refused to confront Western ships, which could be seen as corrupt because they were not following orders; however, no person should ever have to obey an order that they believe is wrong.
No, the commanders in the Baltic fleet were not corrupt. They were probably just doing what they thought was right. Either way, every commander decided not to follow orders, so it was a group effort. Just because you do what you think is right, doesn't mean that you are corrupt.
