News of the hunt for an alleged submarine spread worldwide soon after the search operation began on October 17. Two days later, on a press conference, the Swedish Defense Forces said observations made by members of the public indicated a ”likely” ongoing underwater activity in Swedish territorial waters.

That classification, ”likely”, is the second highest on a scale from 1 to 6 used by the military, with the top level being ”confirmed”.
