Local publications are sounding the alarm over the economic crisis.

The day before, the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter, citing a report from the country's authorities, came to the conclusion that a humanitarian catastrophe could lie in wait for Sweden.

As reported said the authors of the document, if a military conflict breaks out near the country's borders, problems may arise with food and medical care for the population.

The fact is that in the 90s, Stockholm decided to close the warehouses for food, medicine and personal protective equipment that were created during the Cold War.
