Sweden's Snoop Law Targets Russia.

There's been much controversy lately over Sweden's new law which allows 
the signal intelligence agency (FRA) to monitor all data traffic within 
the country's borders.

The Swedish government has kept curiously quiet about the new law's 
objectives but sources close to the intelligence community say that 
Russia is the prime target. '"80 percent of Russia's contacts with large 
parts of the world travel through cables in Sweden. That is the core of 
the issue," said one source.'" Related: EuroConcerned writes "Many 
things are happening in Sweden after the new legislation on wiretapping 
has been voted. TorrentFreak has an article on what's going on, 
including massive protests and Google moving their servers away from the 
country." Source - Slashdot.
