Russia’s hybrid war has no end: ‘Sweden will attack Russian military bases’
MOSCOW, (BM) – Russian media report that Sweden is ready to launch military strikes on Russian military bases, learned BulgarianMilitary.com, quoting the Russian news agency Aviapro.
“Even though Sweden’s involvement in the armed conflicts of the last century has been minimizing and the country’s defense industry is at a relatively low level, Swedish television has announced that the country’s army is ready to strike at Russian military bases using missiles. With a great scope, which caused frank bewilderment among professionals,” begins the article in Aviapro.
“What exactly caused such an aggressive attitude by Sweden against Russia is unknown, but any provocation from Sweden will receive an immediate response from Russia,” the article said.
BulgarianMilitary.com took a closer look at the Russian message and the source of this information. It comes from a Swedish information portal but has nothing to do with the “Russian tone.” The Swedish edition of SVT.se writes about Sweden’s new defense plan, the new budget, and the increase in the Swedish army’s combat capability.
“The number of submarines in the country’s fleet has increased from four to five. Today’s seven corvettes have been preserved, but two were modified, and the Swedish Government replaced two. The ships had also upgraded with a robotic air defense system. The West Coast will have its air defense battalion. In the future, the Air Force will have 80-100 fighter jets, both the old Gripen C / D model and 60 new E models. The aircraft must also be equipped with long-range missiles to land. “Such long-range weapons allow strikes on bases in Russia,” SVT reported.
In reality, the only time Russia’s name is mentioning is where the possibilities of the new weapon systems that the Swedes will buy are compared. They use a “measuring unit” – “to Russia.” “We will purchase additional hunting robots and new sensors. Aircraft must also be able to be equipped with long-range robots for ground purposes. Such long-range weapons provide an opportunity to strike bases in Russia,” the article quotes.
However, the Russian media almost announced that the Swedes were ready to strike at Russian bases – for no reason. Naturally, patriotism has taken a severe part of the Russian article’s text, which says that “Russia has air defense systems capable of shooting down Swedish planes over the territory of its own country. It is not clear where Stockholm got such aggression. Still, it is evident that this was done against the background of Swedish citizens’ anger at the country’s armed forces’ insufficient funding – politicians are simply solving defense problems through propaganda, nothing more.”
There is absolutely no point in waging this type of hybrid war and misinformation. Sometimes, when the Russians have no enemy for the day, they try to create one for themselves.
