The report of the Swedish military analysts has a customized character, an attempt to undermine the credibility of Russia in the international arena, says Sergey Zheleznyak, a member of the State Duma’s international affairs committee.
Earlier, the media, citing a study by the Swedish Institute for Defense Studies, reported that Russia had begun to train more actively in terms of starting and waging a full-scale war.
“The report of the Swedish military analysts is of a customized nature. It is an obvious attempt to deceive and intimidate the European man in the street by deliberately replacing the concepts: Russia is improving defensive rather than offensive weapons systems, unlike the United States and NATO, and we are not threatening anyone. in the current world of challenges – the natural task of any sovereign country, including Russia “, – quotes his iron press service.
According to the deputy, the statements that Russia is allegedly preparing to wage a full-scale war with NATO or other states create a false view of the goals of Russian foreign policy and form the image of the enemy.
“It looks like one of the links of the anti-Russian campaign and undermines confidence in the international arena. Russia does not threaten any country of the world, has never initiated war conflicts and always acts as a peacemaker in solving complex international problems,” he concluded.
