The Russian Embassy in Sweden cynically confirmed the strike on the SKF, a Swedish company's plant, during the night before Tuesday. The Russians claimed that it was supposedly a legitimate military target, according to a statement from the Russian embassy.

The Moscow representation recalled the propagandistic statement of the Russian Ministry of Defense about strikes on "key enterprises of the military-industrial complex of the Kyiv regime."

"Don't you see the connection? Then let us explain: this plant in Lutsk is part of the Ukrainian military-industrial complex, it produced bearings for Ukroboronprom (state-owned weapons producer- Ed.). Of course, there's not a word about this fact in the Swedish press," the comment states.

After this, the Russian Embassy jumps into direct threats, promising that "not only the supplied Swedish equipment will be affected, but also the enterprises of the military-industrial complex that work for them."

However, the Russian terrorists, of course, did not provide any evidence of cooperation between the Swedish plant and Ukroboronprom.
