Written today by the Swedish Minister for Foreign Affairs Mr. Carl Bildt on Twitter:

  • Suspension of preparations for G8 Summit in Sochi in June clear political signal to Russia.
  • When Russian forces demands that Ukraine forces in Crimea surrender weapons it's clearly a military occupation that is taking place.
  • On the centenary of 1914, we are suddenly in a Europe of invasion, aggression and threats of massive use of military force.
  • Russian military intervention in Ukraine is clearly against international law and principles of European security.
