>> Fish balls and oat milk, these are the pantry items of a Swedish doomsday prepper.>>
> Hopefully, Christina will never have to use it.
Here is a version in English. 20 pages long, it's full of advice on how to survive if things go really, really wrong, such as how to get clean food and water, find a bomb shelter, and spot enemy propaganda. Sweden hasn't printed stuff like this since the 1960s. It's not a NATO member, but its location on Russia's doorstep made the threat of becoming a conflict zone back then very real.
They built fallout shelters capable of holding thousands of people. And now, as relations rapidly deteriorate again between Russia and the West, the booklet's authors, the Civil Defense Ministry, even want to restore those bunkers and build new ones. The book doesn't explicitly tell citizens like Christina where conflict might come from, but the intention is clear.
Sweden has repeated accused Russian military jets of violating their airspace, for example, which Moscow denies. Its pages also say Swedes have a duty to rise up in resistance if attacked.>>
