I am guessing that the blatant show of Russian-made war machines which we are seeing of late is to tell the Western powers not to interfere any further on the bear's territory, namely Ukraine. Any further incursion or additional arming of Ukraine's mad Nazi forces to continue their bombing of the Novorussia areas, especially the civilian areas, will be severely dealt with.
Also, was there really a submarine in Sweden's waters and was it a Russian sub that managed to slip out unaccosted by the full force employed to find it? IMO, there was probably something there "testing" the detection powers of Sweden's military or the Swedes used an imaginary sighting to bolster their war chest..... just like the USA, Canada and UK are now doing by strategic reporting of sighting Russian jets invading their airspace. Even if Russia denies their planes were nowhere near disputed airspaces, most of us have been brainwashed nicely enough to discard anything Russia says as lies and nothing but lies.
