The Minister of defence of Sweden called Russia the main challenge for European security

The Minister of defence of Sweden Peter Hultqvist called Russia the main challenge to European security.

The corresponding statement he made during a meeting with Pentagon chief James Mattis, reports TASS. An example of “Russian aggression”, he said, is the situation in the East of Ukraine.

“From my point of view, Russia is the main challenge. Russia has challenged the European security model. She has a destabilizing effect in Northern Europe and beyond,” said Peter Hultqvist.

We will remind, in January of this year, Prime Minister of Sweden Stefan Leuven announced his desire to reduce tensions in relations with Russia.

“We are trying to discharge in relation to its Eastern neighbor. We want to have constructive contacts and they should be reliable”, — said Prime Minister, noting that Stockholm is in favour of broadening contacts between Swedish and Russian peoples.
