“Russian threat” is haunted by the Scandinavian public. Have not forgotten a big story about “Russian submarine” that was allegedly spotted in the waters of Stockholm. As it became known about another similar case.
Unidentified underwater object spotted near the Stockholm archipelago… in the spring of 2015. But hitherto this information was kept secret and known only to the military and to members of the government, writes the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter in an article dated 26 February.
Citing its own sources DN States that the object was seen from a ship of the Navy of Sweden. Then the sailors allegedly beheld above the waves, the periscope, staring greedily at the area where the Swedes carried out the drilling works.
It is argued that the periscope looked out from under the water just a few inches and moved. However, the incident was considered important enough to report it to the Minister of defence how about a meeting with a “possible submarine”.
DN also indicates that the Swedish military managed to exclude from the number of suspects and their submarines, and submarines are the partners of Americans. Further investigation has not progressed, and no alleged perpetrators did not name.
However, the public seems little doubt that if the incident really took place, without the Russians there has not been. In his article recalls how DN scandals fall of 2014 (read the story “Russian plane scared Carlson”) and earlier cases. For example, in October 1981, when a Soviet submarine lost in the Baltic sea and ran aground near Sweden.
However, it is worth Recalling the existence of the view that the panic over “the Russian militant” artificially inflated lobbyists lobbying for additional budget funds for the needs of the army.
