Sweden is preparing a bridge-head for attacking Russia

Summary of Disinformation

Sweden is preparing a bridge-head for attacking Russia and is basing soldiers and military vehicles on the Island of Gotland, a popular tourist resort in the Baltic Sea.

Disproof

Recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation on western military, encircling Russia. Similar cases here and here.

Sweden established a military unit on the island of Gotland in 2018, consisting of a few hundred conscripts; hardly sufficient to attack Russia.
