Sweden's cause

Hard for me not to use "cause" here:

"Krigsutbrottet blev en chock för Sverige och regeringen valde att inte, som annars brukligt, avge någon neutralitetsförklaring. Istället blev Sverige formellt icke krigförande. Det innebar att Sverige i praktiken tog ställning för Finland och att man på ett annat sätt kunde stödja grannlandet."
