Sweden sends jets to Baltic after Russian move

The Swedish Armed Forces sent extra air defence to the island of Gotland on Tuesday in response to a large-scale Russian training exercise being carried out in the Baltic Sea.
The Russian news agency Itar-Tass reported on Monday that 3,500 servicemen of the Russian Baltic Fleet were engaged in a "combat readiness" test operation outside Kaliningrad.
This isn't the first time planes have been to Gotland and it's one of the bases the military has at its disposal for military preparedness.
