“Parisa Lillistrand is clearly disingenuous, as she deliberately used false accents in an attempt to shift responsibility for the remaining vacancy to our country. We recall that Sweden unilaterally stopped cooperation with Russia in the field of culture at the official level back in March 2022.”

It was not enough to abolish Russian culture. It’s time to rob her

The diplomatic mission believes that some of the advisers of the Swedish embassy may have nothing to do with the development of bilateral cultural relations, and that their duties consist in direct intervention in Russia’s internal affairs and the promotion of “neoliberal” values.
“As it happened, for example, last year when the diplomatic staff of the Swedish Embassy in Moscow tried to donate books promoting cruelty, homosexuality and the use of psychotropic substances to the Vologda Regional Children’s Library Fund. Such a“ cultural exchange ”will definitely not work with us!” Russian diplomats noted.
