An Aeroflot Tupolev 154 with 152 passengers on a domestic flight from Lvov to Leningrad was hijacked to Arlanda International Airport in Stockholm, Sweden. The hijacker, who was identified as a 19-year old passenger, claimed to have a hand grenade. He surrendered peacefully to Swedish authorities and requested political asylum. The hand grenade he carried was found to contain no explosive material, and it was not capable of detonating. The hijackers request for asylum was denied in July 1990, and he was extradited to the Soviet Union.
