Sweden has failed to present any proof of unauthorized foreign presence in its territorial waters.
“The operation failed to confirm the type, nationality of form of operation by a foreign country,” the search operation’s commander, Rear Admiral Anders Grenstad, told a news conference on Friday. The operation has cost the treasury €2.2 million. The country’s fire-fighters spend as much during one week to deal with forest fires, Grenstad said.
“While the operation proceeded we got 250 e-mails and phone calls from individuals. The mass media were also helpful. As for the results of analysis, I will announce them late, when I know more about what exactly we can say,” he added.
Earlier, Swedish mass media claimed that a Russian submarine might have been responsible for the row. The daily Svenska Dagbladet even claimed the submarine was in distress.
In the meantime a Russian Defence Ministry official earlier said “the search for a Russian submarine is so unsuccessful because there is none.”
In the past Sweden was searching for a Soviet submarine in 1982 - in the Harsfjarden Bay of the Stockholm Archipelago. No submarines were found then but the defense budget went up.
