Experts suggest Hvaldimir is a trained animal, as indicated by the specially designed harness adorned with “Equipment St. Petersburg” markings and camera mounts. It is alleged that the whale came from Russia and may have been trained by the Russian Navy for various military tasks. Although Hvaldimir’s situation in Sweden remains challenging due to the high population density, both OneWhale and the Swedish authorities are committed to ensuring the whale’s well-being. The presence of Hvaldimir in Scandinavian waters draws attention to the interest and concerns surrounding marine animals’ potential involvement in military operations.
