Ukraine Refugees Refusing to Go to Sweden Over Concerns About Crime, Gangs

Refugees from Ukraine are avoiding going to Sweden due to concerns about rampant crime and gang violence in some culturally-enriched regions of the country, according to reports.

Many Ukrainians fleeing war in their homeland feel Sweden is too dangerous a destination for them and their families.

Volunteers currently working in Poland say they are "having major problems filling their buses when the refugees realize that the destination is Sweden," Samnytt reports.

As Infowars Europe reported last week, a hostel in Örebro, Sweden, had to hire security guards after male migrants from the Middle East and Africa began terrorizing female Ukrainians who were staying there with their children.

Swedish activist Jimmy Hemmingsson told Sveriges Radio that Ukrainians are also worried social services may take their children away, as they have in previous cases that received international attention.

"There are a lot of rumors. People are vulnerable, they hear one thing and then it becomes reality," Hemmingsson said.

He expressed hope that Swedish authorities will travel to Poland to inform refugees "about how things really are."

In reality, the former Scandinavian paradise has become one of the most dangerous countries in Europe, according to some observers.

"In the EU, an average of eight people per million people are victims of fatal violence. In Sweden, the number in 2020 was 12 people per million inhabitants," reported BILD, Germany's most widely-read newspaper, last year.

"When it comes to the victims of firearms, the difference between Europe and Sweden is even greater. In the EU, an average of 1.6 people per million people die from gunshot wounds - in Sweden the figure is four, almost three times as many.”

Now there are as many as 60 'no-go zones' across Sweden, located mostly on the outskirts of major cities such as Stockholm, Malmö, and Gothenburg, where foreign criminals reign supreme and law enforcement are reluctant to operate.

Infowars Europe regularly documents crime and disturbing events in Sweden, considered one of the safest and most sophisticated nations in the world not long ago.
