18 January 2018

Former Ambassador of Sweden to Russia Sven Hirdman stated that the war with Russia would result in the end of the Swedish nation.

In his article published in newspaper Vestmanlands Läns Tidning he urged to increase the level of trust between Russian and Swedish societies and pointed out that the rhetorics about the “Russian threat” are rather dangerous as they “alter a friendly attitude of Russia towards Sweden”, informs RIA Novosti. Hirdman also stated that the war with Russia would result in the end of the Swedish nation.

The diplomat urged to increase the level of trust between Russia and Sweden and warned the Swedish authorities against boycotting Russia because of the Crimea.

“Sweden needs to implement all the possible measures to decrease the level of tension between the great nations, but not to support its aggravation hewing to the US foreign policy”, summarized Hirdman.

We would like to remind that earlier they complained in Sweden about espionage from Russia and China in the field of energy.
