The head of the Swedish Ministry of Defense named three reasons why his country is determined to continue aid to Ukraine.

Sweden will continue to help Ukraine, as it considers it an investment in its own security. Swedish Defense Minister Paul Johnson announced this on Tuesday, December 5, at a discussion at the Atlantic Council in Washington, Ukrinform reports.

“Today we have 650 days of war in Ukraine. We are facing the worst situation in Europe since the end of the Second World War. Let me be clear about one thing: Sweden will continue to support Ukraine as long as necessary,” Johnson said. .

The head of the Swedish Ministry of Defense emphasized that there are several reasons to continue to support Ukraine.

“The first is a demonstration of decency and humanity. Russia started an unprovoked and criminal war, so the commitment to support Ukraine is a challenge facing the modern generation,” said the minister.

He also emphasized that supporting Ukraine means being on the side of the international order.

“For a relatively small country like Sweden, it is important to know that Europe is not a place where one can be right, and that all countries are free to choose a path for their own security.

Finally, we support Ukraine because it is an investment in our own security. Ukraine is now a European shield against Russian military expansion. If Russia had been successful in this war, I am convinced that neighboring countries like Moldova and Georgia might have felt the pressure. NATO allies will also face greater pressure. So let me assure you that the United States has a partner in Sweden who is united in supporting Ukraine as long as necessary,” he added.

Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden and her husband Prince Daniel visited the Ukrainian military at the Interflex exercises taking place in the UK.

We remind you that Ukrainian pilots conducted test flights with Swedish Gripen fighters.
