"Total defense": Sweden began preparations for a possible attack by a "major power"

88

Sweden is preparing for a possible attack by a "major power", the country has adopted a special government plan "Total Defense 2021-2025", which provides for a significant increase in the number, as well as the re-equipment of the armed forces. As noted by the Western press, Stockholm has raised military spending so high for the first time since the end of World War II.


Within the framework of the Total Defense 2021-2025 plan adopted at the beginning of the year, military spending is expected to grow by 40% from the level of 2020. The main reason for such a sharp jump is the aggravation of relations between Russia and the West, as well as, which is noted separately, Sweden's international obligations.

It is noted that although Sweden is not a NATO member, some of the international agreements it has signed indicate the joint repulsion of an attack by a "major power", by which the West means Russia. In particular, Sweden plans to establish a joint operational defense planning group with Finland and coordinate planning with other partners such as Denmark, Norway, the United Kingdom, the United States and NATO.

"Total Defense" also provides for an increase in the size of the army and fleet... According to reports, in the period until 2025, the Swedish army will additionally form one full mechanized brigade, one brigade of the reduced staff, and the garrison of the island of Gotland will be strengthened. In addition, the Swedes plan to purchase new submarines, increase their number from four to five, purchase a new aviation etc. In general, the personnel of the Swedish army will increase from 60 thousand to 90 thousand.

Thus, Sweden, following the course of Europe and NATO, is building its "total defense" against Russia, turning the more or less "calm" flank into another hotbed of tension.

      From January 1, 2018, military service has been in effect for both women and men.
      The Swedish Civil Defense Department has circulated letters to cities and towns demanding the preparation of the population for a possible war with Russia.
      The emergency warning sirens are reported to be working properly and operations centers must be ready to move into underground bunkers.
      Sweden refuses the policy of neutrality In particular, the authorities of Gotland, following the "recommendations" of the foreign and defense ministers, refused to build the SP-2.
      They will vigorously otovyatsya to ... new Poltava.

      No. You are not right. The most powerful army in the world in / in Ukraine. There are prerequisites, there is no money. Most likely the war will go on like this in the morning they will declare war by lunchtime they will surrender. The Swedes are strengthening their defense against prisoners.

      Oh, the Swedes can't sleep: they want revenge for Poltava! So, if according to history, then let them first flee to the pshek (Carlos from there flooded to Russia), and then arrange a battle near Poltava ... ... (I wonder: who piles on whom - Russia just won't be there: they will invite, but take it and don't come ... but Poltava, then in Ukraine ...)

          Well, after the "carpet bombing of Ukraine", for which Monsieur Zyablitsev always votes here, I am not surprised at the paranoia with the "preemptive nuclear strike." It's funny that "the whole world in dust" is presented by this comrade as joy for the good of his children, who must live in a sterile world without any ill-wishers around. Among the peaceful tribal birches and daisies, the beauty of which will not be touched by the nuclear counterparts of the foe. This is the option "and we are for sho?"

        Every time I visit my grandmother in the village, I go to the river bank, where in 1943 a hundred women and children were buried. So as not to accidentally forget and relax. And I show and tell the children. So that they also understand that death is much closer than it sometimes seems.

            I see you misunderstood. A large-scale military operation is planned against Russia right now with superior forces from several strategic directions at the same time. Fortunately, according to some indications, specially trained people in the Kremlin are aware of this. War is inevitable if one of the parties does not surrender in advance. And this war will begin as soon as one of the parties gets a chance for an unanswered strike. And this "one of the parties" is clearly not Russia.

All poles of military power are crucified in their peacefulness and "we are only defending ourselves." You, with your idea of ​​some kind of "preventive strikes", present the Russian Federation in the image of a dull aggressive jock-gopnik with his "shyas vdaryu", devoid of diplomatic skills. So what, excuse me, do you expect from those whom you consider to be a potential target for your "vzhzhzhzhzhzh ... broads!" ??

    Within the framework of the Total Defense 2021-2025 plan, adopted at the beginning of the year, it is envisaged to increase military spending by 40% from the level of 2020 at once.

                I had to live in a Finn with local Swedes, so it is they who consider "Suominash", as well as the Baltic states and even "and Peter is on our land."

                  (well, this is about Peter, of course. Let them turn to Suomi and the Baltic states later, when we ourselves figure out what's what)

    Poor ... If God wants to punish someone, then he deprives him of his reason ... You look at the demoniacs like that and you realize that more and more the planet is becoming like a psychiatric hospital request Madmen live in their own little world, inventing enemies for themselves, and then heroically fight these very "enemies", surrounding themselves with layers of lies and self-deception.
    At least there is someone to laugh with us, sane ... lol

      In vain you think they are half-witted) just all these politicians have the opposite opinion and they hold us for fools. The fight against external enemies, even though real or fictitious, is one of the main pillars of management, diploma that we have in the USA that in Sweden. The main folder of the North Koreans Kim Irsen at one time built a whole dynasty on this, with his philosophy of endless war hi

    "Total defense": Sweden began preparations for the attack of the "major power"

    The question is, whoever, defense, albeit total, can save from an attack by a STRONG POWER ???

    Sweden plans to establish a joint operational defense planning group with Finland

    But this is already serious. I'm afraid to assume, but most likely we are talking about the purchase of combat ferries Stockholm-Helsinki for the needs of defense, powered by wine and vodka.

      How to say it. Perhaps they are preparing to make another court decision in favor of Ukraine, they are afraid that the shareholders' nerves will break down, and something will fly towards Stockholm.
      I’m not the president, and I would have sent them something after their decision to donate $ 4,6 billion to Ukraine.

    Seriously, why should they "begin preparations for a possible attack by a" small power "" ??

    Sweden has a good position in the production of some types of weapons, and wants not to miss them. Thanks to the trend for new hyper-weapons, the military-industrial complex of many countries is happily rubbing their hands.

        They still decide! Can you imagine the amount of $ 4,6 billion awarded from Gazprom? This is more than the amount that the construction of a bridge to Crimea cost. This is essentially a veiled declaration of war, for which they are now preparing, perhaps they want to repeat the robbery.

          This is, firstly, arbitration, which has nothing to do with Sweden itself, and secondly, in fact, ukroina did not receive any money, this is only a discount on gas for some time. And that's all. It's like throwing a bone to a mad dog. On and leave me alone.
