A total of 15 vehicles are taking part in the drills, including corvettes, minesweepers, a motorboat and a submarine.
Among other things, the exercises include simulated torpedo launches and the dropping of a death bomb, which are drilled in line with the Swedish armed forces' special shoot-to-kill rule, known by the Swedish acronym IKFN, or "interference in the event of peacetime infringement of Sweden's territorial sovereignty while maintaining neutrality."
In light of this, the lawyers of the Swedish armed forces warned against protecting the country's territorial integrity by firing on the mock enemy during the drills. The lawyers have insisted that the European Convention on Human Rights should certainly prevail over the IKFN rule.
He said that in such situations, responsibility for the loss of human life will belong to those who have violated the state border of a country, according to international norms.
