In Sweden, they found Russian attack drones flying over the territory of the country.
Military drones that, according to the Swedish publication Aftonbladet, have been spotted over eastern Sweden have caused panic. This happened after Sweden began to voice its threats against Russia and, according to the materials presented by the Aftonbladet publication, these are military drones with an approximate wingspan of more than two meters, which, as stated, may well belong to Russia.
According to Aftonbladet, the fact that this is the fourth time a drone has been seen over the same areas of Sweden has attracted particular attention. At the same time, the police claim that the flight of the drone was not authorized.
“Four drones in the air on their way to the city – locals sounded the alarm so early this week that it forced police across Stockholm to begin patrolling. Aftonbladet was able to find out that the areas in which the UAVs were seen have important social functions and are also connected with the government of the country. “The drones could carry a payload and target social targets,” says intelligence analysis professor Wilhelm Agrell. Shortly after dark, a special operation was launched in the Stockholm area after four unmanned aerial vehicles were found “hovering” over Nakka. According to Aftonbladet, one of the drones flew over the oil port of Berg, which is owned by Circle K and supplies the entire Mälardalen with various types of fuel. This led to that the regional task force of the police sent a special team to the scene. “The drone was circling around the oil tanks and oil depot and it caused a lot of concern because it is an important facility,” an official source told Aftonbladet. After 17:00, the police said that they were “large-type” drones with wings, after which other UAVs were found. “Most of the drones flew towards the city at the same time,” the official said. Two drones were later seen in the area of the Kaknestornet TV tower, which is a protected site, and a third appeared near the large waterworks in Norborg, which are also protected sites. Simultaneous flights over nuclear power plants and events, – said in the material “Aftonbladet”.
At the moment, it has not been possible to establish which drones we are talking about, however, after the last recorded incident on January 16, a similar situation was no longer observed.
