Update: According to Swedish officials: “On Friday night, a Russian aircraft of the type AN-30 violated Swedish airspace south of Blekinge. Swedish fighter planes followed the incident and photographed the plane.”
This development comes off the heels of Swedish and Finnish officials announcing that they will vote on NATO membership and make the decision together in mid-May. Triggering a strategic disaster for Putin.
Few details coming in, but Swedish officials in Stockholm have told AFP News that Russian reconnaissance planes have entered Swedish airspace moments ago.

This is developing and will be updated.
If true, this would be the second Russian violation of Swedish Airspace since early March 2022, when 4 Russian interceptors, possibly armed with nuclear air-launched ballistic missiles violated Swedish airspace.
