Experts in Sweden called the landing of troops on the island of Gotland an attempt to justify the existence of the Swedish army

26

The Swedish Armed Forces have demonstrated their determination to defend the island of Gotland, which belongs to this Scandinavian state and is located in the Baltic Sea. In Stockholm, they fear that Russia "will not limit itself to Ukraine" and will actively engage in the Baltic.


This was told by the journalists of the German TV channel ZDF.

They note that the Swedish army is actively preparing to repel "Russian aggression." True, Swedish experts interviewed by journalists from Germany called the landing of troops on the island of Gotland an attempt to justify the existence of the Swedish army and the defense industry in Sweden. They criticized Stockholm's actions, stating that the authorities are using a non-existent Russian threat to waste public funds.

From the statements of Swedish experts:

This landing on Gotland itself is a demonstration performance designed to justify the existence of our army and the expenses that the country bears in this regard.


And the German journalists themselves, with slight irony, watched the actions of the Swedish military, whose equipment, including Tanks, appeared on the picturesque streets of the capital of the island - the calm provincial town of Visby. They managed to talk with the commander of the Gotland regiment of the Swedish armed forces. He noted that although the situation in the world and Europe is tense, this is not felt on the island.

But we are ready for any development of events

- said the Swedish officer.


And although soldiers and tanks on the streets of Visby are a novelty for local residents, they, as German journalists note, behave extremely calmly and even phlegmatically.

          About the aggression of Russia - this, of course, is a common brand (or is it more correct to write nonsense?) Recently, so do not be surprised.
          But the voices that have appeared in favor of abolishing the army altogether are the result of the degradation of thinking. After all, Sweden was one of the first in Europe to approve gayism at the government level.
          The rest will follow soon. And disappear, assimilated by the Arabs.

      Objectively speaking, in Ukraine, up to the Crimea, the opinion prevailed that it did not need a strong army, from whom should it be defended? Everyone around seems to be friends, members of the UN, the twenty-first century is in the yard, it is clear that there may be some troubles, but what if the army suddenly comes in handy? No, this will not happen. And it turned out that in the end, we all remember. Therefore, Sweden is in the same position, no matter what friends are around, gunpowder must be kept dry.

        From your comment I conclude -
        Sweden is getting ready defend against NATO invasion - from Norway (NATO member) and Denmark (NATO member)
        Also, Sweden "keeps an eye" on Finland - a neighbor from the East ...
        It's scary to live in Stockholm...

    But where is the tambourine? I can't find it in the photo or in the text...

      They looked bad, everyone had an earpiece and a smartphone. Now everyone is jumping, some from drugs, others dancing to a smartphone, and you can’t make out why.

        Well, no tambourine was heard in / on 404, but there were: mass races, decommunization of people and objects, sounds of shooting, shouts: Shame, promises Ze: I will end the war in Donbass! and "Kill them at once!"; tantrums on the Maidan and in social networks.
        But in Gotland-Buyan, apparently, the tambourine is still audible, even though the drum is more dear to them.
        Either they mumble that they are united with NATO and brought 2 tanks, then they mumble that they got excited and are simply "looking for a meaning in the existence of the army!" Here it is.

          Yes, the Swedes have not yet reached the tambourines, slander, burning tires, but everything has its time, and tires will burn there.

    It is already clear to any fool that in the event of a war with Ukraine, which they are so waiting for, a completely different transport with a completely different cargo should come to the island.
    ... The Swedes, on a small island - there are so few of them, they drive tanks - it's so funny .... what a stupid and vulgar divorce.

    The bourgeois world, which had not mastered the pandemic, decided to win victory at least somewhere. And this is serious. Different penguins are pushing us to the slaughter. They will be far away.

    And how did they gather to crawl under fire with this?
    From practice, there will be broken bricks, glass, some wires and it’s dark ....
    To serve the 300th is to substitute yourself. So let's take a picture...

    In the photo - straight students of the military department at the field training camp! Well, right, at least they will learn to make fires and put up tents.
