Sweden's Armed Forces to employ military sheep against Russia

Summary of Disinformation

The Swedish military has come up with a new method to demonstrate presence on its Eastern borders. They have decided to use rams instead of watch dogs. This is another example of how the Liberal Swedish Government is trying to use the “threat from Russia” to evade attention to the urgent internal issues, facing the country.

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. The ram is a symbol of the island and the Gotland Regiment's mascot.
