Moscow, The war crisis between Russia and Ukraine, which has been going on for the last 40 days, is not over yet and now another new problem is coming up. On Thursday, a close ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin said that if Sweden and Finland decide to join the US-led military alliance NATO, Russia will need to protect and strengthen its territory by deploying nuclear weapons in the region.
Russia warns NATO against membership to Finland, Sweden
It is noteworthy that there was a war between Russia and Ukraine over Ukraine’s accession to NATO and if Finland and Sweden take such a decision now, this kind of war could happen in the future. It should be noted that Finland has a 1500 km long border with Russia.
Finland’s Prime Minister Sanna Marin said on Wednesday that Finland would decide in the next few weeks whether to join NATO.
Meanwhile, Russia’s Security Council Vice President Dmitry Medvedev said that if Sweden and Finland join NATO, Russia will decide to strengthen its land, navy and air force. Russia has warned against such signals from Finland and Sweden.
Let it be known that now Finland has to think about its own decision. He fears that his situation will not be the same as in Ukraine. So now the PM of Finland has said that our country is a porter of NATO, but its membership is a different issue and we will analyze it very carefully in future.
Russia says the security situation in Europe cannot be improved if Finland becomes a member of NATO. He warned Finland that its decision would be disastrous. It is expected that Finland will make a major decision to join NATO by the end of June.
In early February, Finland and Sweden sidelined neighboring Russia’s warning that the two countries would face serious military and political consequences in the event of a possible alliance with NATO. “We have already heard that,” Finnish Foreign Minister Pekka Havisto said in an interview with Finnish state broadcaster Rooney on Saturday. We do not believe this is a warning of military action.HS
