A Swedish surveillance ship operating in the Baltic sea has saved two Russian fisherman from drowning, according to a report in Svenska Dagbladet.

The incident occurred over the weekend off the coast of the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad.

The Swedish naval vessel Orion was conducting a surveillance operation on behalf of the National Defence Radio Establishment (Försvarets radioanstalt - FRA) when a look-out spotted something in Russian territorial waters.

It turned out to be a fishing boat containing two Russian fisherman in distress with their boat partially submerged in the water.

The two stranded fisherman were then brought to safety by the Swedish vessel together with the Russian coastguard.
