A Russian military plane violated Swedish airspace south of Blekinge on Friday night, the Swedish Armed Forced announced.

Swedish fighter jets cut off the Russian plane, several media reports.

The Swedish Armed Forces confirmed the incident on their website on Saturday night. 

They wrote that Swedish fighter jets photographed the plane, which was of the type Antonov An-30, a reconnaissance aircraft developed in the former Soviet Union.

“The plane was located east of Bornholm and then flew towards Swedish territory. For a short period, the plane violated Swedish airspace before leaving the area,” the Swedish Armed Forces noted.

  1. The Toronto Star is Canada’s second largest newspaper in print and largest online:

    “We may be on the road to a wider war. Now is the time to back away from the brink
    ‘The possibility of a deal to end the fighting in Ukraine, a lively possibility a few weeks ago, has faded.’” Toronto Star Editorial Board, By Star Editorial Board, Sun., May 1, 2022

  2. If this hours-old report is true, we’re now *over* the brink: Apparently – presumably with our intelligence – the Russian command bunker near Izyum was hit with many high level Russian officers killed and even Chief of Staff Gerasimov wounded. Whoever authorized this must be insane.

    Expect total Russian escalation and retaliation.

    Our Western warpigs have now finally gotten – for unprepared civilian *us* and our loved ones – our children – the “major war” they have been craving for 2 decades.

    A fair peace and security treaty would have been SO much easier, but NO, that would have been too simple and humane for our bored-with-peace war-rabid lemmings.

    God help us all.
