"the armed Forces will next year increase the number of conscripts to 5 000."
"For the first time, even conscripts cybersoldater trained."
"today, the ambition is to train around 4 000 conscripted soldiers. Commander-in-chief Micael Bydén has now taken the decision to raise the number to 5,000 by the year 2020."
"– We can't wait to increase the number of grundutbildade, " he says."
"Bydén indicate that the armed Forces now need to lay the foundation for being able to recruit more staff to the defense in the long term."
" We shall fill our krigsförband. We are going to recruit soldiers and sailors who are recruited. We are going to recruit officers, " says Bydén."
"The thousand new conscripts are deemed to cost around half a billion kronor to educate. Micael Bydén intend to take the money from less priority areas, if needed."
"He does not believe that there is a problem to find 5 000 motivated young to do military service."
"– will to defend the country is good. It is the high quality of them that come in. They set high standards, but are very motivated, " says Bydén."
"That the number of conscripts would increase the low in the cards. The so-called värnpliktsutredningen pointed to the need of escalation from 2020. Most parties also want to see more inductees. For example, both M and S increase to 8 000 in the long term."
"also New is that the next year started a pilot, which means that around 30 conscripts will be trained to cybersoldater."
"– They should first protect our own systems, " he says."
"Those who are selected for the new training must have a certain expertise in the field already from the beginning."
"– But then we will raise them to a whole other level linked to our system, " says Bydén."
"In his speech at the People and defence conference in Sälen described Micael Bydén, the situation in the armed forces in light terms."
" We feel pretty good. We solve the tasks we are obliged, " he says."
"The main challenges today is, according to Micael Bydén, recruitment needs and investments in armaments."
"– But we didn't stick there, " he says."
"He aimed at the armed Forces take new initiatives in order to strengthen the defence capability while trying to solve the challenges. The extended military service and cybersoldaterna are two examples."
"another is that the commander now takes the decision to bring anti-aircraft missiles to Sweden's two brigades and a battle group on the island of Gotland. It is robotic 70u002F90 with the related personnel."
"– In the mode, we must increase the luftförsvarsförmågan, " says Bydén."
"the Liberal försvarspolitiske spokesperson Allan Widman welcomes this decision."
"– This is a functioning weapon system that works. And that is paid. Such love we Liberals, " he says."
"With the parliamentary committee on budget decisions in december and may, the supreme commander of the money he requested for this year and next year."
"– Now we can continue the journey towards the ambitions that is set for the end of 2020, " says Bydén."
"– It also means that we can embed in order not to lose capacity after 2020."
"But parliament will next year take a decision on a new defence policy focus for 2021-2025. A continued increase of the defence capability from 2021 requires more money."
"Micael Bydén reiterates its requests for more long-term approach to defence policy and to defence funding."
"– It would do that I have agency to act, I can change my schedule for yourself when it is needed when something happens, " says Bydén."
