STOCKHOLM, March 12. /ITAR-TASS/. Supporters of the right-wing radical Party of the Swedes, Svenskarnas Parti, have headed for Ukraine hoping to support Ukrainian radicals. A dozen of Swedish nationalists have already arrived in Kiev, reports Sveriges Television, SVT.
Yet Swedish politicians are not bothered about this fact. Deputy chairman of the parliamentary committee for foreign affairs, foreign policy speaker of the Social Democratic Party Urban Ahlin finds fears over Swedish nationalists’ involvement in the events in Ukraine exaggerated.
Svenskarnas Parti is a very small party, and the uproar is largely due to headlines, while members of other Swedish parties have also visited Ukraine, he said in an interview to Itar-Tass.
“At the same time, Social Democrats from the very start pointed to the need to represent all political forces in the Ukrainian government,” Ahlin added.
As it was earlier reported by the online version of Dagens Nyheter paper, members of the extremist organization Nordisk Ungdom (Nordic Youth) are among those who support Ukrainian counterparts. The paper also refers to The Daily Beast online paper citing the statement of Nordisk Ungdom’s chairman urging to collect funds to help “free Ukraine” and create a group to support Ukrainian extremists on Facebook.
Right-wing radical movements in Sweden are supervised by the Swedish Security Service Säpo, yet it has not yet taken any heed of radicals’ trips to Ukraine either.
“These trips are none of our interest. There are no bans on membership in organizations, international contacts or trips,” Swedish radio quotes Säpo’s chief analyst Ahn-Za Hagström.
