RUSSIA VS SWEDEN: HOW DO THE TWO COUNTRIES STACK UP?
If they were to fight it out the old way, Russia also looks to be in the best position, beating Sweden fifty-fold. Thanks to its conscription, Russia claims 766,000 personnel, while Sweden has just 15,400.
If things got really out of hand and Russia decided to launch a nuclear attack, Sweden would have next to no chance of success – while Russia has 1, 600 active nuclear warheads out of a total of 8,000, Sweden has none whatsoever.
Most damning surely is the 2013 report that says Sweden could not actually defend itself in a conflict.
In short: this is one fight Russia will win.
