Having become a member of NATO, Sweden will begin to reconnoiter the situation in Russia. This assumption was made by the publication “Free Press”, which remembered the event that took place 70 years ago. Then, over the Baltic Sea, a MiG attack aircraft attacked a Swedish aircraft that carried out electronic intelligence for an agency cooperating with NATO.

In those years, an officer in the Swedish Air Force, Colonel Stig Wennerström agreed to work for the Soviet Union and provided him with all the information about the events taking place in NATO. A Swedish officer notified the USSR of the entry of the NATO submarine arsenal into the North Atlantic. Soon, the colonel’s activities were revealed and he was accused of treason.

As for the Swedish aircraft, a machine-gun burst from a MiG-15 was fired at it, and during the flight over the Baltic Sea, it lost contact with the base. The crew of the combat vehicle was killed. Until 2021, Moscow did not recognize the downed plane, and Stockholm did not recognize that it was reconnaissance. The authors of the post in the Free Press believe that Sweden applied to NATO for a reason.
