The entire security system in Europe is threatened by Russia's actions. This was stated by the Minister of Defense of Sweden Peter Hultkvist, reports SVT Nyheter.
According to the head of the Ministry of Defense, Sweden needs to expand cooperation with NATO. He also pointed out that European countries should not accept proposals from Moscow on security guarantees and sacrifice their own sovereignty.
Earlier, negotiations between Russia and the United States on security guarantees began in Geneva. The meeting is held in a closed format. The main topics of the Russian-American consultations are the issue of non-deployment of medium and short-range missiles near Russian borders, the refusal to further expand NATO at the expense of the former Soviet republics and the reduction in the number of military exercises.
