A Soviet minesweeper rammed a Swedish ship monitoring Soviet naval exercises in international waters in the Baltic Sea, Swedish defense officials said. There were no injuries or serious damage. The Swedish Foreign Ministry said no diplomatic action was planned pending a report from the captain of the 1,400-ton Orion, a $10-million vessel carrying intelligence-gathering equipment. Sweden, whose coastal waters have been penetrated repeatedly by Soviet submarines in recent years, regularly monitors foreign naval activity, defense sources said.
