The Swedish authorities continue a policy of provocations against Russia, calling its geopolitical interests for security threats. In particular, Stockholm insists on not recognising that Crimea became a Russian region after the March 2014 referendum, when a majority of its population voted for reuniting with Russia.
The military-industrial complex of Sweden is strongly dependent of the US and NATO. It needs to sell its production to countries under Washington’s control. Sweden produces aircraft, tanks, artillery. The Swedes were allowed to sell around 15 of its fighter jets to Hungary. So this is why Sweden is trying to join exercises with NATO. The NATO countries are vassals to the US. /…/
Sweden’s neighbour, Finland, acts almost the same way. Finland is also a neutral country and not a member of NATO. But it is a part of the European Union, and EU and NATO is almost the same thing.
Recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives, accusing the EU of being subordinate to the US and serving Washington’s interests.
The EU Member States are sovereign countries and make sovereign decisions about their own security and policies. The US is an important ally to the EU but the latter's policy is not determined by the US, as explained by the EU High Representative.
EU and NATO have different tasks and history and a different set of Member States. Six of the 27 EU Member States are not members of NATO; Seven of the 30 NATO Member States are not members of the EU.
Read similar disinformation cases claiming that EU and NATO member states are subordinate to the US, while the US has long regarded the EU as a kind of protectorate, and that lined up with the US, the EU never took independent decisions.
