"If war comes." Civil Defense Brochure Reissued In Sweden

For the first time in several decades, Sweden decided to publish a brochure on what to do in the event of a full-scale war or a serious crisis, reports the Aftonbladet publication.

“In the 1943 year, at the height of the Second World War, the Swedish government released a pamphlet entitled“ If war comes, ”which said what the Swedes need to do if their country is drawn into a conflict. Among other things, it was written there that “any message that resistance is useless is a lie”, ”leads the article InoTV.

During the Cold War in Sweden, the publication of such instructions continued, but they were intended mostly for a narrow circle of people - for those who were trained in "total defense."

However, this day has come again. The reason for this was the deterioration of the security situation in Europe and the near abroad of Sweden,
writes a newspaper.

By the summer, the Swedish Civil Defense Agency will distribute this brochure to all the houses in the country. Her working title is "If a crisis or war comes."

The goal of this work is “that not only the Armed Forces, but the whole society be ready for a military attack.”

The government clearly indicated that the supply of this material needs to be improved. There can be talked about how to behave during crises in peacetime with serious disruptions in the work of society due to extreme weather conditions or in the case of an attack on some of its important function,
Christine Andersson, one of the compilers of the pamphlet, told the newspaper.

According to her, the brochure has “a number of concepts related to the danger of war and military attack, which have not been explained to people for many years.”

The following topics are raised in the brochure:

1. Total defense and increased readiness.
2. How to treat the influence of information on individuals as well as on Sweden as a state.
3. What do crisis and war danger mean and how do they affect society and individuals.
4. Short tips on how to behave in the event of a terrorist attack.

When society experiences serious difficulties or cannot come to help at all, people should be able to meet their basic needs and the needs of their loved ones for some time,
said Andersson.

According to her, nowadays citizens need completely different information compared to the times of the Second World War.

At that time, attention was focused only on the war, but now society looks completely different. Now there is a much more comprehensive picture of the threats, which includes climate change, terrorist attacks, pandemics and informational influence. People need to know how to handle it,
summed up the total Andersson.

        Here it is not necessary so about Sweden.
        Until 2010, the army was called up there. that is, a large percentage of the population went through minimal military training.
        In addition, it is quite easy to buy weapons there, 31,6% of the population have a personal firearm.
        If you want to have slaves instead of citizens, deprive the people of weapons. In Sweden, this process has been going on for only 10 years (weapons have already been banned). In 40-50 years, yes, instead of the people there will be an electorate. And now the partisans will let any aggressor creep in. The Swedes are freedom-loving. Now closed the door for refugees.

          So do not! In Stockholm, daily robberies and robberies, banks are robbed with regularity once a week, bank robbers were caught in my age only in 2014 or 2015 and then only because there was a group of police officers under cover in front of the bank, such joy was, all the newspapers in Sweden sucked two weeks, Once every two or three months, the Stockholm police chief resigns from unbearable shame. And if you show up resistance in a robbery, then according to Swedish laws you will most likely end up in prison, since your life is more precious. In Swedish schools, roughly 50 / 50 are white and tanned. And about the fight was present in such a situation when a crowd of Swedish and a crowd of Finnish youth stood opposite each other, shouting, cursing, spitting, threatening each other, our people would have beaten each other in 20 seconds, and these 15 minutes tried to fight, but Zassali, because everyone can shout, and hit no longer!

      I do not understand sarcasm. The Swedes have absolutely the right approach - do not wait for the cock in the ass to bite. What's the problem, you know? The fact that in Russia GO for a long time and for a long time pushed into the far corner.

      Sad but true. In Soviet times, from school, children were taught how to act in an extreme situation, including if war begins. Therefore, when people grew up, there was already a “vaccination” from panic in the blood and a correct idea of ​​the universal “virtue” of fsh.

          Household appliances in Russian are completed with instructions here in Russia. Why not put another brochure? Smartphones, so those generally in bulk in containers go pack here.
          Car kits, after all. Their contents are precisely being studied, many, however, already forcedly.

            You can release special ones. Only in our country, as usual, they are pushing garbage at exorbitant prices.
            The state should think about its citizens! Let at least provide manuals.

    The brains were dusted with sweets. The main threat is the tuyeva bunch of refugees who have made garbage from my beloved Stockholm! And who have already successfully criminalized entire areas of the city. And this is only in the capital! They say the same thing about other cities! Previously, you could go for a walk where you want, but now there’s a place where the white man should better stay out at night. And the police just shrug their hands. That’s how the descendants of the Vikings turned into a tolerant one that hawks about the Russian threat!

    And this would not hurt us. Life in conditions of war and terrorist attacks. Survival in the city and nature. God saves man, who save himself.
    Recently they announced in the supermarket - "Fire alarm" ... and people are standing silently watching .... they are probably waiting for it to light up so that they can save vodka with a snack. )))

      Recently they announced in the supermarket - "Fire alarm" ... and people are standing silently watching

      Today, we got into a situation that was previously heard only in the media, the evacuation of visitors to the mall. Before that, they said in news feeds and wrote that because of a call from an unknown intelligence agency, people were evacuated from such and such a mall and that’s all. He watched, read and always thought, "Well, well, they saved everyone, nothing threatens anyone." The actual evacuation was never told. And today, my family and I went to buy gifts and all kinds of little things, drove into the second level of street parking, spent 20 minutes looking for a place to park, of course, there were a lot of buyers. Having walked through various boutiques for about half an hour, we first noticed a running guard talking nervously into the radio, then two policemen in body armor and, as it seemed, in huge helmets, and a couple of minutes later a message sounded about the need to leave the room. All people rushed to the exit, there was no panic, there was no particular rush either, everything was calm, but without hesitation, they left the mall. And most went to the parking lot in their cars and then the BP started. Nobody was able to leave, a giant traffic jam formed, from the shopping center the road goes to one of the busy streets of the city, through which there is very dense traffic + existing traffic lights. People were blocked in the parking lot, several thousand people. Traffic along a busy highway near the “mined” shopping center was not blocked, traffic lights were operating normally, there was no cordon or traffic controllers so that it was possible to let people leaving and not to let people in. What is this evacuation when it creates more danger to people. I agree that everyone is responsible for his own life and if you worry about life, not about the car, you could have evacuated not to the parking lot, but to another place, BUT where? There were no signposts, nor employees who would indicate the direction of safe following. No one led the evacuation. They just kicked the people out of the building and that's it. They stuck out in the parking lot for about an hour, breathed in carbon monoxide. With a particularly stormy imagination, one can imagine what can be done with a thousand blocked people, even at least 2-3 trained bandits. While they were waiting, all sorts of stupid thoughts climbed into my head, from which it became terrible.

    It would be better if the phrasebooks in Arabic were ordered. Well, if they are so afraid of us, then in Russian, the first phrase in which should be this - "Do not shoot, I give up!"
