The aerial violations of Swedish airspace by Russian planes are continuous, lately, in fact, Russian planes are carrying nuclear missiles.

Apparently,the Russians had been violating Swedish and Norwegian air space for decades.
Come on,this whole thing is a chance for Erdogan to bargain for F-16s and whatever else he wants from the Americans.We have great respect for Sweden's own national interests and national security, and we care about its geopolitical risks. We would also be pleased to be in the same military alliance as Sweden. The fact that Russia could turn its attention to north while we struggling against Russia in 3 different geographies will be an important widening in terms of our geopolitics too. However, the main criterion here is that both states had to be approaches in accordance with the spirit of alliance.
