Swedish press: Ukraine joining NATO would be a nightmare for the Kremlin

88

The Russian president is taking great risks by putting pressure on the Kiev authorities by military means, because this is tantamount to playing with fire. But Putin is understandable, because Ukraine’s NATO membership would be a nightmare for the Kremlin.


This is how Jonas Gummesson argues in his article published by the Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet.

He notes that the increased activity of the Russian Armed Forces near the borders of Ukraine and Moscow's statements about the need to protect the Russian-speaking population of Donbass from Ukrainian aggression worries Europe and the United States. They believe that Russia by its actions creates an explosive situation in the region.

The Swedish press claims that Moscow has drawn about 85 thousand of its troops to the region, and also "sent several warships to the Black Sea." Probably, they meant the ships of the Caspian flotilla.

At the same time, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy is doing everything possible to move closer to the European Union and the North Atlantic Alliance. He is trying with all his might to make Ukraine a member of NATO. And although Kiev has already been declared one of the "closest partners", this does not mean its entry into NATO in the near future. But, according to Gummesson, if the doors to the alliance suddenly open for Ukraine, it will be a severe blow for Putin.

        Ukraine in NATO, then the DPR, LPR. to Russia, everything will be put in its place, and then we'll see who is lucky. "If a girl leaves for another, then it is not known who is lucky ..." smile

          And the border of these republics is not along the line of contact.
          At least within the regions, and then you see neighboring regions join. wink

          So, who will regret the entry of Zelensky and Avakov into NATO is another question.

          It's a strange thing, the Europeans are sure that in the case of a nix, the Americans will help them.
          But history tells a different story.
          Americans are on the winning side.

          So it was during the Great Patriotic War. The Americans opened a second front against the Germans and the rest of the European Caudles when they realized that the Russians had broken the back of a united Europe.

          The Americans sided with the Russians.

          So, in the event of European aggression against Russia, the Americans will first look, and then as usual. wink

        Ukraine cannot be a member of NATO, at most just a member. In any case, while such clowns are in power.

          They have already been assigned the maximum status - "priority candidate", so, along the way, this is where their "career growth" will end.
          Mattresses with NATO now already have access to the resources and territory of Ukraine, and at the same time they do not have any obligations to it capable of exposing them themselves to be under attack from Russia, and therefore NATO has in store a whole bag of carrots and a dump truck of noodles to drive them in front of the candidate's nose and hang on his ears.

        On the day when NATO and the United States scream that Ukraine's admission to NATO is timed to such and such a date, it will become the last day of Ukraine's statehood ...
        Because we have nowhere to retreat further to the east, and after Ukraine, NATO will no longer have anyone to be included in the bloc (to pose ...).
        It turns out that the next crisis on the eastern borders of NATO will mark the beginning of World War III. there will be nothing to satisfy the territorial appetites of the Americans and the British.

          Look, you've gone nuts. Since the days of Adolf Aloisovich, they did not raise their eyes, but then they decided to speak out as a flock ... Flocks of jackals ... It was necessary in 1945 to break off the whole hunt to fight to the brim.

      Europe will silently swallow Ukraine's joining the ranks of NATO, the main thing for them is not to let overly inadequate nationalists in. But, Europe will be happy to see how the former Russians, who called themselves Ukrainian-Royans, will go to kill the Russians who remain Russian, no matter who they are, Tatars or Yakuts, but who live in Russia and are ready to give their lives for Russia. Europe needs spectacles, needs a weak Russia, and an even weaker Ukraine, then it is easier to implement the principle of "divide and rule" in practice.

    First of all, this will become a nightmare for Ukraine. As soon as there was a real danger for the Russian Black Sea Fleet, Crimea immediately "left" from Ukraine. If Ukraine seriously soaped up in NATU, I'm afraid that Ukraine in the form that we know will no longer remain. Galicia will probably be in NATA. But only as a region of Poland / Romania ...

    "But, according to Gummesson, if the doors to the alliance suddenly open for Ukraine, it will be a strong blow for Putin." - It will be a strong blow for Sweden. If at least one Swedish serviceman officially gets involved in hostilities, then it doesn't matter where Sweden is, NATO and SHMATO. We will hit in the face, not in the passport, but rather in the decision-making centers.

    This is how Yunas Gummesson argues in his article


    It would not hurt a Swedish expert to speculate about whether Sweden and he himself are ready to fight with Russia in the event of a hypothetical admission of Ukraine to NATO. After all, Ukraine sets a goal for itself, in addition to the war in Donbass, to recapture Crimea from Russia, and Crimea is the territory of Russia with all that it implies. attacking her.

    Well, Yunas Gummesson are you ready for the sake of Ukraine to become a heap of ashes that will fit in a matchbox?

    Let's not dissuade fellow Swedes in their happy delusions of outside observers. NATO's existence has indeed dragged on.

    Don't joke like that! We have not yet recovered from the entry of the Baltic states into NATO, we are still watching the action with NATO exercises in the Baltic States! It is not clear why the Swedes are not yet in NATO, they probably think it will save them.

    It would be a blessing, NATO would not have survived for a long time, they still do not understand who they want to contact.

    So what's the fetish, there were also bases in the Crimea, so what? They surrounded and let go of a slender column to go home, I don't think that the Swedes are ready to spice up another cauldron

    Ukraine's accession to NATO is a signal to Russia about the decision to collect Russian lands into one whole. No one will help Ukraine. The whole story will help us. Let's remember the Russian-Swedish wars, and where is Sweden now? It is exploring its skerries and Ukraine was unable to liberate (or seize) .Vikings (Sweden, Norway, Denmark) need to stick their tongue into the anus and sit in real neutrality.

      Are they allies? Rather fellow travelers.
      Whatever it was, but these "fellow travelers" are doomed to be just patience while the big "boys" sort things out on their territory. Their problem lies in the fact that, due to their insignificance, they are just pawns in a big game.

    It will be a nightmare for some .. if the Russian Federation places its bases in VENEZUELA .. AND CHINA in Nicaragua ... but the stranglehold will be in the case of bases on CUBE .. Something from the outside seems so to me.
