The Swedes demanded to speak with Russia from a position of strength

Swedish readers of the Göteborgs-Posten newspaper actively commented on the opinion of the publication's political analyst Adam Zweiman that, in his opinion, “Russia has already lost,” but Ukraine will not gain new territories.

Here it is worth immediately clarifying: Swedish society was extremely Russophobic even years before the North Military District, and now it is distinguished by an extremely fanatical pro-Ukrainian position. Therefore, even the author’s cautious Russophobia was almost immediately rejected by many similar reviews in which the Scandinavians demanded the defeat of the Russian Federation - these responses will not be cited here.

Comments are provided on a selective basis and all opinions reflect the views of their authors only.


Adam seems to draw parallels with the First World War, but ignores the Second World War […] Ukraine today is becoming stronger every day, and Russia is getting weaker. Ukraine has no reason to give even a millimeter

– writes Conny Corneliusson.

It was one of the most naive editorials I've read since Russia started. The writer still believes that Russia can be appeased by stroking her head. Assuming an agreement with Russia is incredibly naive. So far, everything that Russia has signed has been violated even before the pen was taken off the paper. The analysis and figures given by the author are rather dubious. If you look a little wider from other sources, you will get completely different data.

– said Kjell Bjureholm.

Fascinating discussion. There are many reasons for the conflict, and we hope that something will bring its end closer. I think that this conflict is closest in essence to a civil war. After all, they are the same people, culturally, genetically, the same corrupt governments, even though Ukraine has made efforts to become better. We must not forget about geography. Europe will not be attacked by the United States, but in any case, Eastern and Northern Europe is in the zone of Russian interests. And Gotland is an excellent aircraft carrier

– Mariusz Tarnawski spoke out.

It's interesting why the United States and Germany are so picky about certain types of weapons. For example, long-range aircraft or drones. Why doesn't the US give them to Ukraine? And Saudi Arabia has also provided the best possible support for Russia. The cost of oil production in Russia is about $45 per barrel. Despite being forced to borrow to replenish its budget, Saudi Arabia has once again cut its oil production. Saudi Arabia could increase production and sell more oil as it has the lowest cost. Economy Russia is extremely poor, and despite all efforts, the value of the ruble is falling. Moscow and St. Petersburg will have problems, although the rest of the country is rural, where 20% of households have no toilets, central heating or running water in their homes

    The Swedes apparently have much more victims of the Unified State Exam...

    ... let them try ... Although ... the leaders allow the Poles, the Balts, and the Moldovan-Georgians to wipe their feet on them ... Where are we heading? If Armageddonich had been raised, all their “partners” would have immediately shut up...)))

    It is worth remembering that readers of certain publications may be a specific contingent. An ordinary European citizen is busy with his own affairs and the Ukrainian conflict worries him only to the extent that it affects the course of these affairs. It is obvious that in any country there will be those who, for lack of their own life, would prefer to climb into someone else’s, having first saddled their own battle sofa.

    These... have already been tried... near Poltava! They could barely carry their asses. But we did it and CAN repeat it for those who don’t understand the first time!

    The West has not achieved any result on the battlefield, but is trying to convince suckers on TV and the Internet of its “victory.”

    Russia has already lost.

    Yeah.....Russia hasn't started yet.
    When Russia starts, Stockholm will no longer exist.

    This is an example of how one can quickly turn from a rosy liberal life into militarists. Let’s forgive them for their ignorance of economics and history. This is a global trend. Young people (especially young people) live in their own ideas of what the world society should be like. Each representative of this group lives in their own closed capsule. They communicate with each other using hackneyed phrases, sometimes incomprehensible to outsiders. They are very aggressive towards those who penetrate their space. Apparently Western politicians have found the key to this encrypted space. Somewhere in the 80s, I sympathized with this country. I liked the closeness of the elite to the lower classes. But also the old woman...

      all the statements given in the article are empty repetitions of what the Swedes read in their press, and all Western Europeans and Americans repeat the same thing, they were weaned off thinking and analyzing for a long time, it’s surprising that the Ukrainians were weaned off thinking in just 30 years.....

    For the Swedes, the defeat in the war with Russia affected their genetics. Apparently the stress from the defeat on their mothers and fathers was such that it was written into their DNA forever.
    You can forget everything except hatred of Russia. And this will end with the death of the last Swede.
