(Before It's News)

 

Sweden recently announced a contingent of 150 troops previously deployed to Gotland Island for a training exercise will remain there permanently.

Russia has called a move by Sweden to deploy a permanent contingent of troops on a strategic island in the Baltic Sea as inconsequential as “buckshot to an elephant.”

Swedish Armed Forces Supreme Commander Michael Byden, in comments to Swedish broadcaster SVT, claimed that “external factors in the world have deteriorated over time and it means I have made a decision about a permanent presence and that we put the battle group here earlier.”

Gotland Island, with a population of approximately 60,000 people, lies off the coast of Latvia. The historic island occupies a strategic location in the middle of the Baltic Sea.

Political analyst Igor Nikolaichuk suggested the deployment is a symbolic move with no effect on Russia’s defense capability.
