Russian envoy to Denmark accuses Swedish authorities in drug abuse

So, according to Vanin, Swedish authorities see Russian submarines and Russian warplanes invading in Swedish airspace under the influence of drugs.

Vanin stated it during an interview to the Danish publication Berlinske.

"The Swedish authorities also recently said there was a submarine in their waters. There wasn't," the Russian says answering the question about the Russian military plane, which almost caused a collision with the Swedish passenger liner.

The Russian also tried to sneer, saying that the allegations in Sweden due to the fact that the Swedes "visit Pusher Street (the street in Copenhagen, which is known for marijuana trade – Ed.) very often."

In addition, Vanin has used ordinary Russian declamation about "machinations against the Kremlin" and "libel" about Russia spread in the West.

"The goal? Blackmail. To show Russia as a very dangerous neighbor and pave the way for more NATO troops deployment in the Baltic States. It is escalation. Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania were shouting that they saw Russian warships in international waters, and it was a threat. But why? Their warships are in the same area, not far from the territorial waters of Russia," he said.
