STOCKHOLM, Apr 16 — Counter-protesters demonstrating against a far-right group’s intention to burn a Koran in Orebro in central Sweden clashed with police last night, leaving nine police officers injured, authorities said.Police said in a statement that nine officers were injured in all.Medvedev's comments are among the most detailed threats Russia has issued over the prospect that its north-western neighbours may join the alliance after decades of staying out.Their injuries included “broken arms and police officers who have been hit by stones,” police spokesperson Diana Qudhaib told the daily Aftonbladet A member of the public was also hit by a stone to the head.Medvedev also explicitly raised the nuclear threat by saying that there could be no more talk of a"nuclear free" Baltic - where Russia has its Kaliningrad exclave sandwiched between Poland and Lithuania.The demonstration, involving around 200 people, according to local media, dispersed later in the evening.But Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda dismissed the threats as"empty", accusing Russia of already placing tactical nuclear weapons in the Kalinigrad exclave on the Baltic.It was the second day running that there had been clashes on the fringes of a rally by the anti-immigration and anti-Islamic Stram Kurs (Hard Line) movement led by Danish-Swedish Rasmus Paludan.

Three police officers had to be taken to hospital after a riot broke out in the city of Linkoping on Sweden’s east coast on Thursday, where a demonstration that included a Koran burning was planned.Russia based Iskander missiles, which can carry both nuclear and conventional warheads, in Kaliningrad starting in 2018, according to the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington think tank."If our hand is forced well.Two people were arrested at that protest.Reacting to the violence, Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson said; “In Sweden, people are allowed to express their opinions, whether they are in good or bad taste, that is part of our democracy.Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov declined to comment on the possibility nuclear weapons may be deployed in the Baltic region but said that Putin has already ordered the military to prepare plans for boosting defences along Russia's western frontiers.No matter what you think, you must never resort to violence.take note it wasn't us who proposed this," he added.We will never accept it.Russia's border with Finland runs for over 1,300 kilometres, more than the total length of its frontier with current NATO members.

” “This is exactly the kind of violent reaction he (Rasmus Paludan) wants to see.The very purpose is to incite people against each other,” she added in comments to the TT Paludan has regularly been at the centre of incidents in recent years.Though the initiatives to consider NATO membership picked up in both countries only after the invasion, Medvedev said Russia's move was not to blame.Finland gained independence from Russia in 1917 and fought two wars against it during World War Two during which it lost some territory to Moscow.In November 2020, he was arrested in France and deported.Five other activists were arrested in Belgium shortly afterwards, accused of wanting to “spread hatred” by burning a Koran in Brussels."We don't have territorial disputes with those countries like we do with Ukraine," he said.— AFP You May Also Like.KALININGRAD Kaliningrad is of particular importance in the northern European theatre.
