Sweden reinstates military draft over concerns about Russian aggression

Sweden is reinstating the military draft — for men and women — because of dwindling volunteers and growing concerns over a more assertive Russia in the Baltic and Ukraine.

"The security environment in Europe and in Sweden's vicinity has deteriorated and the all-volunteer recruitment hasn't provided the Armed Forces with enough trained personnel," the Swedish defense ministry said Thursday. "The re-activating of the conscription is needed for military readiness."

A defense ministry spokesperson says 4,000 men and women will be called up in July for service beginning in January 2018. They will be drawn from some 13,000 people born in 1999.

Marinette Nyh Radebo told the BBC the "security change in our neighborhood" prompted the move by Sweden, which is not a NATO member.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A word of caution for Defense Ministry Spokesperson Radebo; your false narrative about Russia having "annexed" Crimea is a pure, deliberate lie, stated to complement the agenda of alleged "Russian Aggression", and you know it!! And so does the BBC, and everyone else on this planet with a brain.

In 2014, the US/Soros/EU/IMF "coup" in Kiev threw the duly elected Ukrainian President, Yanukovich, under the proverbial bus, and the western-centric Poroshenko was "anointed" in an alleged election which was more crooked than a dog's hind leg

You appear to be suffering from SMD (selective memory disorder), and particularly, regarding Victoria Nuland's very public boast in 2013,about how much money the US government had spent on destabilizing Ukraine:

Regime Change in Kiev - Victoria Nuland Admits: US Has Invested $5 Billion In The Development of Ukrainian, "Democratic Institutions"

Sorry, my dear Ms. Radebo; one cannot unsee this, or not realize the point to which the US government was complicit in this regime change!!

Not only that, but President Obama admitted that the US was behind regime change and the destabilisation of Ukraine's government!!

Washington Was Behind Ukraine Coup: Obama admits that US “Brokered a Deal” in Support of “Regime Change”

So if there is any "aggression" to be charged, it should, rightly, be charged to the actions of the USA under President Obama's watch.

Post-putsch, Crimean officials understood that there was no legitimate government in Kiev, so - in a free and fair referendum - asked their people if they wanted to stay with Ukraine, or petition the Russian government to become a part of the Russian Federation. Overwhelmingly, the people of Crimea voted to petition the Russian Federation to join it.

There is a value, enshrined in the UN charter, and that is the right for people to exercise peaceful self-determination; but Ukraine, NATO, and the US got furious when that happened in Crimea, so...blamed the Russians for something they never, ever did.

And BTW, did you NOT get the memo that the "big lie" went out with the whoopie cushion and the dribble glass?!? Just checking.

But these statements have made one thing painfully obvious; the march against Russia, heading to a war against it, is gathering steam; the deep state in Europe, NATO, and in the US are on track for making that happen, no matter what the citizens of Europe and the US want!!
