The drills included emergency ascent the photos of which got into the Swedish press.
“On October 17, the Dutch submarine Bruinvis called at Tallinn port (Estonia) and today will possibly sail back. We cannot but hope that this information will help Swedish media find it [the sub] on the voyage back to a naval base in the Netherlands,” the Russian Defense Ministry source said.
