Moreover, they did not even hesitate to point out that this was ordered by the Swedish Ministry of Defense (not free), to conduct a “study” and study the question of how the Russian military is actively training to conduct a large-scale war. On the other hand, centuries of history and the gigantic teachings of the “peace-loving” NATO bloc and its allies nowadays tell nothing to specialists from the Swedish Institute for Defense Research.
Since 1991, Russia has taken part in several armed conflicts and local wars, for example, against Georgia in 2008 and against Ukraine in 2014. Since 2009, Russia's military strategic exercises have shown higher ambitions: to be able to wage regional wars, which may include potential opponents such as NATO or China
- says the "study".
The authors note that over the past 10 years, Russia conducted a large number of exercises, which, no doubt, strengthened its Armed forces. It is clarified that the conflict in Ukraine and the military operation in Syria further contributed to this. And now Moscow is ready to conduct military operations on "a significant part of the continent."
Analysts say that now the Russian army is stronger than ever. Now Moscow has a tool to influence (influence) other countries and processes in the world. Up to threats, coercion or open attack. After which it is concluded that Russia is demonstrating a growing willingness to fight.

It should be recalled that the United States are going to to deploy modernized nuclear weapons in Europe, but for some reason this does not bother Swedish analysts.
