MOSCOW, October 19. /TASS/. There have not been any emergency situations with Russian military vessels, spokesman for the Russian Defence Ministry said on Sunday.
“Russia’s submarines, like the surface ships, have been following their tasks in the world’s oceans according to the plan,” he said. “There have not been any emergencies or accidents with the Russian military vessels.”
On Saturday evening, Director Communication and Public Affairs of the Swedish Armed Forces Erik Lagersten said: "At the moment we are conducting an intelligence operation in the archipelago of Stockholm with optical reconnaissance as well as with naval vessels equipped with qualified underwater sensors. The units activated are from all branches of the Swedish Armed Forces, the Navy, the Army and the Air Force.”
Sweden’s spokesman said the ministry would not publish any details. The country’s Armed Forces are not in a position to deny or verify media news or speculations recently published about a missing foreign submarine, he said.
