Former Swedish ambassador to the Russian Federation: The war with Russia will destroy the Swedish nation

33
RIA News with reference to the Vestmanlands Läns Tidning edition (VLT) cites statements by the former ambassador of Sweden to Russia, Sven Hirdman. According to Hirdman, who has lived in the Russian Federation for several years (1994-2004), our countries need to work to increase the level of trust in each other.


The Swedish diplomat says openly that in Sweden the opinion is cultivated that Russia is an aggressive power that threatens its neighbors.

Hirdman:
This is a flawed point of view. The statements about the existence of the Russian threat to Sweden are dangerous, because they change the friendly attitude between our countries to a negative one.


According to the former ambassador, even more dangerous are the statements that Sweden needs to prepare for a military conflict with the Russian Federation.

Former Swedish ambassador to the Russian Federation: The war with Russia will destroy the Swedish nation


Hirdman:
This war will be disastrous for both parties. It will lead to the end of the Swedish nation. We need to take all possible measures to reduce the level of tension between the great powers, and not to contribute to its strengthening, following in the wake of US foreign policy.


Thus, the Swedish diplomat openly made it clear that all the hysteria around Russia is gaining momentum due to overt pressure from the United States.

This is another example of the "insights" of Western politicians towards Russia - after they leave their posts in the civil service.

        That is, I think one thing, I say another, I do the third. This in Russian is called hypocrisy, duplicity and hypocrisy. What actually characterizes all of Western politics. And why now his belated confessions, the thing had to be done when he was in office.

            Neither Sweden nor Finland are members of NATO for some reason. Although ferries from both St. Petersburg and Helsinki and Stockholm constantly go, and after all they can transfer several divisions to them, Probably they have more brains than Estonians, who are now waving brushes with Finns .

              the Swedes have not fought with anyone for a very long time, and the Finns had to knock on the kumpole several times and threaten with the loss of statehood before they realized that they needed to live peacefully ...

                What the hell is a "catastrophic war"?
                That is, if Turkey attacks us, we can demand the straits in exchange for peace. And what to demand from Sweden? If Sweden attacks, we will rocket in response with missiles at military bases, and the next day we will sign and forget the world. Nobody needs Sweden until the first attacked.
                Better let the industry develop and trade. This country has an ideal place to live with everyone in the world. Neither strategic position, nor scarce deposits.

            Well, let’s say, politics is different. Although yes, politics is a dirty business.

          It turns out they all understand everything, the fact that Russia is a friendly power, but they do what the United States tells them, and they also clearly understand this.
          Is there any country that does not understand what it is doing (except Ukraine, of course)?

      And Americans zealously do not let anyone go to their borders, if only they would have conducted NATO maneuvers off their shores to counter pirates.

      "... - I see that you are journalists," he spoke benevolently in English. "And I have lived and worked in this area for thirty years as a nurse in a hospital. I have already moved my children from this terrible ghetto to the other end of the city. I don’t want to so that they grow up as bandits or drug dealers. I wish you well. Hide the cameras. You are lucky: at one o'clock in the afternoon all the youngsters (as young gangsters are called here) still sleep. Usually they wake up at three in the afternoon and go hunting for whites.

    Mr. Hirdman, what have you personally done in your life to dispel a negative attitude towards Russia? For 10 years of service in our country, you, like many others, didn’t spit through your lip, but now, apparently, because you were scrapped, you decided to remind yourself? sad

    As they already got, with their "Russian" threat! It seems that there in the governments, some masochists! There are probably special rooms where they, for a more authentic sense of the threat from Russia, whip each other and themselves with lashes and rods.

    Small countries think little: "We have two hundred tanks, and two hundred tanks will hit us. We have no missiles, and the enemy will not use missiles. We have no strategic bombers ...", etc. But, the mess begins, all of Europe from the Urals to Liverpool will be a radioactive desert ...

    Europe again itself insistently pumping up courage for a war with Russia. Forgotten about the war of the 40s,. Once again, they will have to give them stars to calm down for another 100 years.
