Swedish to English: Excerpt from Dagens Nyheter economic article, 21 Oct 2008
Source text - Swedish
- En övervägande majoritet av branschfolket ser väldigt, väldigt pessimistiskt på framtiden, och oron är störst runt huvudstaden, säger SBAB:s chefsekonom Tomas Pousette till DN.se.

Varje kvartal granskar hans företag den svenska prisutvecklingen genom en enkätundersökning riktad till drygt 200 mäklare. Syftet är att se hur många objekt som säljs och hur dyrt. Statistiken för hösten kunde inte vara mer entydig. Nervositeten på bostadsmarknaden har successivt spridits över landet, från att före sommaren mest ha påverkat Skåneregionen.

- Mäklarna upplever att intresset svalnar allt mer, vilket i och för sig varit väntat. Men styrkan i försämringen har överraskat många, säger Tomas Pousette.

"An overwhelming majority of businesspeople are looking very, very pessimistically at the future, and the unease is greatest around the capital," the Swedish Housing Finance Corporation's chief economist, Tomas Pousette, told DN.

Every quarter, his company reviews Swedish price trends through a survey aimed at more than 200 brokers. The purpose is to see how many units are sold and for how much. The autumn statistics could not be more unambiguous. Nervousness in the housing market has gradually spread across the country, after having influenced the Skåne region the most prior to the summer.

"The brokers are seeing interest cool off more and more, which in itself was expected. But the intensity of the deterioration has surprised a lot of people," Pousette said.

Россия намерена предложить Украине продлить сроки пребывания Черноморского флота в Крыму после 2017 года. Об этом сообщил глава МИД РФ Сергей Лавров.

"Мы строго руководствуемся соглашениями по Черноморскому флоту, в том числе содержащими и положение о возможности продления сроков пребывания флота на период после 2017 года, - сказал он на пресс-конференции в Москве. - В соответствующий момент мы будем готовы предложить украинской стороне обсудить условия такого дальнейшего пребывания. Разумеется конкретное обсуждение этих вопросов предстоит на более позднем этапе ближе к 2017 году и с тем правительством Украины, которое на тот момент будет работать".

По мнению Лаврова, "на данном этапе самым главным является добросовестное выполнение с обеих сторон имеющихся соглашений по базированию флота".

Russia intends to propose to Ukraine an extension of the Black Sea Fleet's stay in the Crimea past 2017, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov reports.

"We are following the agreements on the Black Sea Fleet to the letter, including those that contain provisions on the possibility of extending the fleet's stay into the period after 2017," he said in a press conference in Moscow. "We are ready to propose to the Ukrainians, at the appropriate moment, discussing the conditions for a further stay. Of course, a concrete discussion of these questions lie ahead at a later stage, closer to 2017, with the government of Ukraine that will be operating at that time."

In Lavrov's opinion, "at this stage the most important thing is the conscientious fulfillment of the present fleet-basing agreements by both sides."
