Bildt to talk to parliament about Ukraine

Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt has asked to speak to parliament about the on-going tensions in Ukraine as soon as possible.

In an unusual step, he will speak to the Swedish Riksdag about the developments on Friday morning. MPs will also be able to ask Bildt questions.

The last time Carl Bildt used the opportunity to personally request parliamentary time was six years ago during the Georgian war, news agency TT reports.
