    A Russian and Ukrainian word

    When is the Russian word "шведа" used instead of "швед"?

    Does "шведа" exist in Ukrainian, or is there only "швед"? If it does exist in Ukrainian, when is it used?

    In genitive case.

    около шведа - near the Swede
    здесь нет шведа - ...there is not Swede here
    вместо шведа - instead of the Swede

    шведа is used in two cases - genetive and accausative.
    Я так думаю.

    It's like in English "I" is the Nominative case and "me" is the Objective case of the same word.

    In Ukrainian "шведа" is Genitive and Accusative cases of the word "швед" exactly like in Russian.

    Here are all possible cases of the word "швед" in Ukrainian:
    Singular: швед, шведа, шведові, шведу, шведом, шведі, шведе
    Plural: шведи, шведів, шведам, шведами, шведах
    "Россия для русских" - это неправильно. Остальные-то чем лучше?
