“Whenever possible, the Swedish Armed Forces supports society with available resources, while performing regular tasks. We have the capability, accessible units as well as personnel with local knowledge”, Magnus Lüning, Head of Operations, says.
The task will be solved by the Western and Central Military Regions, with the support of personnel from the Home Guard and employed soldiers from Ing 2, P 4, P 7 and Lv 6.
The request for support regards observation, documentation and reporting at border crossings. The decision will remain in force until 14 February.
