While Sweden has done their level best to be neutral during military conflicts the last few decades, the Russian invasion of Ukraine has changed their minds. Meet Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson. Andersson has announced her country will give military aid to Ukraine to support their fight against Putin.
Sweden will send military aid to Ukraine, including anti-tank weapons, helmets and body armour, Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson said on Sunday.
“Sweden is now proposing direct support for Ukraine’s armed forces. It includes 135,000 field rations, 5,000 helmets, 5,000 body shields and 5,000 anti-tank weapons” Andersson told a news conference.
The rations, helmets, and body shields are great, but the anti-tank weapons are what may make the most difference. It’s refreshing to see some countries defy Putin, especially those who wouldn’t do so.
