А.А. Komarov. Swedish ambassador to the USSR Rolf Sulman on his meetings and conversations with Nikita Khrushchev // Petersburg historical journal, no. 1, 2023, pp. 182–190
This publication contains two letters from the Swedish Ambassador to the USSR, Rolf Sulman, to the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Torsten Nilsson. In the first letter, the Swedish ambassador describes his impressions of the reception he had at the Kremlin on the occasion of the 1963 New Year’s Eve, and in the second he describes a lengthy conversation with Nikita Khrushchev in late February of the same year. The letters present the impressions of the high-ranking Swedish diplomat as a result of his interaction with the Soviet leader. The tone of the letters witnesses that at the time of writing Soviet-Swedish relations were developing in a favourable spirit.
