Minister of Foreign Affairs of Sweden Ann Linde made a corresponding statement during a phone conversation with Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba, the press service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine informs.

“The conversation took place amid active diplomatic efforts to strengthen the security of Ukraine and Ukrainian citizens against the background of aggressive actions of the Russian Federation,”

Kuleba informed the foreign minister of Sweden in detail about the current security situation near the state border and in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine, massive Russian disinformation, and Russia's efforts to undermine the economic and financial stability of Ukraine.

Linde reaffirmed Sweden's unwavering support for Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity, and its commitment to the principle of "no decisions about Ukraine without Ukraine."
