DISINFO: Sweden supports Russia on Crimea
Sweden supports Russian on the ownership of Crimea. Crimea was always Russian. This view predominates in Sweden, says billionaire Dan Sten Olsson. According to the businessman, this view in only not supported by NATO.
A recurrent claim on Crimea’s status and a false statement on Sweden’s position on the illegal annexation of Crimea.
Mr. Olsson is the head of a Swedish transnational corporation with large trade with Russia. He did express support Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea in an interview with the Swedish daily Dagens Nyheter, but the claim was a personal view of Mr. Olsson. The businessman does not suggest that his views are representative for neither Swedish business circles, nor among Swedes in general.
The Swedish government has persistently condemned Russia’s aggression against Ukraine, and expressed support for Ukraine’s territorial integrity.
