Sweden suspects Russians of stealing traffic cameras for their drones

In Sweden, the disappearance of traffic cameras, which record violations of the speed limit, has become more frequent. Local intelligence agencies suspect the Russians. According to the newspaper Aftonbladet, the stolen cameras were later allegedly found in Russian drones that are involved in the SVO in Ukraine. The Swedish State Security Service (SEPO) reports the loss of at least 100 cameras throughout the country. The same figure is indicated by the transport department of the country.

The first case was recorded on August 27, when eleven speed cameras disappeared on the road connecting the cities of Tierp and Harskamp, ​​100 km from Stockholm. Three days later, almost 50 more cameras were stolen already on the roads near the Swedish capital. In September, thefts continued, especially in the provinces of Dalarna and Estrikland. Several cameras disappear almost daily on the E16 highway between the cities of Falun and Hofors.

The Swedish State Security Service, based on a published Ukrainian video (screenshot above), where a Canon camera was found inside a downed Orlan-10 drone, suspected the nature of the theft of electronic surveillance equipment for sale to the Russian military. It is these cameras that are installed along Swedish roads to capture traffic violations. The cost of one traffic video system is about 250 SEK, which is equivalent to about 000 euros.

The press service of the security forces has not yet given official comments, citing the inability to talk about the details of the intelligence work.

    Brad, for slander and slander, we'll send a smack across Stockholm. Not now, when the time is right. But so that in dust.
    And we also remember the decisions of the Stockholm court in favor of the Ukronazis...

      After WW2, Sweden begged Stalin not to do anything unnatural to the country. And it was necessary to place on that island and in Sweden itself from the heels of Soviet military bases

    Have you tried to place a booth with a Swedish shepherd dog on top of the cameras?
    The German, for sure, will not respond.

    Why Russians and not Ukrainians? Or is it more convenient for the Swedes, who caved in under the United States?

      So the Swedes remember that in 1709 Poltava was Russian and not Ukrainian - yes, you can repeat it!

    As a rule, cameras with a large zoom are installed on UAVs, but traffic cameras do not require this, so fake!

    Yes, these cameras are so annoying that the locals simply destroy them!
    Here in Latvia, the policemen complained that more than a hundred cameras were either compromised or simply ruined. True, they haven’t thought of blaming Russia yet

    Bullshit. The Swedes have a strong idea of ​​themselves, they imagine themselves to be the navel of the world. And there is a bad tradition from ancient times to blame all their problems on the Russians. I know these assholes thoroughly, they are lousy, unworthy people without honor and conscience. And these cameras are most likely stolen by gypsies from Romania or Bulgaria, they come there in hordes, they tear out copper cables, and roofs, etc.

    Like poking and betting on "Geranium". And since out of habit, the camera captures speeding, then before the explosion of Geranium, at the target, it issues a fine for speeding the Ukrainian thermal power plant and sends a copy to the Swedish police.

    And my herring rotted ... I threw it into the waste on the street - and it was gone! I naively thought that it was my dog ​​who ate it. And now I understand - no! The Swedes stole it - for surströming!

    I thought only in the Russian Federation there is a corruption component in the cost of cameras, which cost 1-3 million apiece. And, I see there are cameras in Sweden too, mom don’t cry
