According to MANA, the sailors were released after talks between the owners of the ship and pirates.
Butsay told TASS news agency that a ransom was paid but did not reveal the sum.
Security experts class West Africa's waters, especially off Nigeria where many pirates originate, as some of the world's most dangerous, with attackers often targeting oil tankers and holding hostages for ransom.
