Sweden Has More Sightings Amid Russian Submarine Speculation -- Bloomberg Businessweek
Sweden’s Armed Forces received reports of two further sightings as it continued to search for foreign vessels in waters near Stockholm amid media speculation a damaged Russian submarine was seeking to evade capture.
The most recent sightings bring the total to five as the army searches both on water and land “for something or someone,” Rear Admiral Anders Grenstad, the deputy chief of operations at the Swedish Armed Forces, said today at a press conference in Stockholm. While the army can’t confirm an intrusion, it is “very likely” that such an event took place, he said. The events are “completely unacceptable,” he said.
Commenting on the search, Grenstad said “it’s like Jesus - - everyone knows who he is but noone has seen him.” The army has moved its operation into open water, which is an easier area to search than within the archipelago, said Grenstad.
