- According to a 2013 statement by Sweden's Supreme Commander Sverker Göransson, Sweden can,
at best and in five years, defend itself in one place for one week.

- "One needs to always be prepared to defend the nation's capital, vital infrastructure,
power supply and telecommunications, important airports, import of basic necessities and military
reinforcements. ... [Sweden] today does not have that capability. ... The consensus had been
that no state in Europe would ever attack another state. But someone just had, and it wasn't
just anybody. It was Russia." - Wilhelm Agrell, military historian.

- "The idea of defending Sweden as the most important thing was lost." - Owe Wictorin,
former Supreme Commander.

- "As far as the Russians are concerned, it would be a great advantage to 'borrow' Gotland.
... it's quick and easy and they can say: 'We mean you no harm, you'll get Gotland back in
two-to-three months, we just need to get the Baltic states to do what we want.'" -
Karlis Neretnieks, former head of the National Defense College.

- Parliament demanded many things, but has never given the Armed Forces enough money
to do them.
