Sweden reported that a Russian plane violated its airspace

“A Russian AN-30 propeller aircraft violated Swedish airspace on Friday,” the Swedish Defense Ministry said in a statement, saying its teams recorded the entirety of the incident and took photographs. The plane was east of Bornholm (a Danish island in the Baltic Sea) and then headed towards Swedish territory,” the statement said. The Swedish Defense Minister also denounced the incursion.” It is totally unacceptable that Swedish airspace should be violated (…). This action is not professional and, given the general security situation, is very inappropriate. Swedish sovereignty must always be respected,” Peter Hultqvist wrote to public television SVT. Obviously, we will protest through diplomatic channels,” he added, AFP reported. In early March, four Russian warplanes briefly entered Swedish airspace, east of the island of Gotland, in the Báltico.La Russian invasion of Ukraine prompted a shift in its stance on possible accession to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in Sweden. Some 54% of Swedes currently agree with joining the alliance, according to a Novus institute poll published on Saturday. The Swedish Social Democratic government gave itself until May 24 to make a decision on its NATO bid.
