Sweden Distributes ‘Be Prepared For War’ Leaflets

The Swedish government is sending leaflets to its entire population, a leaflet telling them what to do in the event of war. It explains how to secure basic needs like food, water and shelter. It provides locations of bomb shelters and how each citizen can contribute to the country’s defense.

It ludicrously states “Although Sweden is safer than many other countries, there are sill threats to our security and independence”. It comes with pictures for the refugees so they can be safe.

The leaflet was in response to the rising tensions among countries especially Russia and North Korea. Since Sweden has not been involved in a war for the past 200 hundred years the government felt obliged to offer the citizens some information to help them prepare.
