“We have Russian ships in the Baltic Sea and the government still believes that it is safer for Sweden not to join NATO? Is speechless”, Tolnai writes on Twitter.
Russia has – in the form of various state formations and with one exception – had vessels in the Baltic Sea for at least 1,500 years. During the Nordic Vendel period (550–800 AD), Slavic tribes from present-day Russia actively traded with the Vikings and the population of modern Sweden. According to recent research, Scandinavian Vikings have been involved in founding what later became Russia and the blame from the Vikings can still be traced in DNA from parts of the Russian population around the Baltic Sea.
During the great power era, Russia lost its Baltic coast to the Swedes. that the Swedish defense of the Baltic provinces collapsed at the beginning of the 18th century, Russia returned as a Baltic nation, and has had a fleet in the Baltic since then.
Réka Tolnai's post on Twitter is now arousing cheer on the social networking site. p>
