Russian Foreign Ministry: The accession of Finland and Sweden to NATO will not remain without reaction

Joining NATO does not in any way satisfy the interests of Sweden or Finland, but will only lead to the militarization of the north, said Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko.

Furthermore, according to the diplomat quoted by RIA Novosti, the entry of Finland and Sweden into the North Atlantic Alliance cannot be left without a political reaction. And the decision on the actions of the Russian Federation in the event that these countries join NATO will not be made on emotions, but will be verified.

Earlier, Alexander Grushko stated that such a step by Helsinki would not contribute to strengthening the security of either Finland or the North Atlantic Alliance, and that Moscow would take retaliatory security measures. The diplomat also emphasized that “from the point of view of security, we will not remain indifferent”, the Russian military will consider “all necessary measures that will be required to ensure legitimate defense interests.”

By the way, Turkey is also closely following the accession process of Finland and Sweden to NATO, which cannot yet see it positively, Recep Tayyip Erdogan said earlier.
