A Swedish film about an attack from Russia prepares the Swedes for joining NATO

Summary of Disinformation

In Sweden, a film about a Russian military attack on the country has premiered. A film like that has only one objective: to scare the Swedes and convince them that Russia is a monster, prepared to use chemical and biological weapons. Swedes are supposed to feel the threat from Russia. All this is to prepare the Swedes for a NATO membership.

Sweden is maintaining a policy of non-alignment and has no plans to join the NATO.

The film, Den blomstertid nu kommer, is a thriller about an attack from an unknown enemy force. The film never mentions any country as an aggressor.
