Putin outlines position on looming NATO enlargement
Russia “has no problem” with Sweden or Finland but considers deployment of the bloc’s military infrastructure a threat

The possible accession of Finland and Sweden to NATO does not represent an immediate threat to Russia but the expansion of the alliance’s military infrastructure will “certainly” prompt a response from Moscow, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Monday.

On Sunday, the two Nordic countries officially announced their NATO membership bids, despite multiple warnings from Moscow. Speaking at the Collective Security Treaty Organization’s summit in the Kremlin, Putin said that further NATO enlargement “is a problem that has been created completely artificially, since it is being done in the foreign policy interests of the United States.”

He added that the military bloc has been routinely used as a foreign policy instrument of one country – the US, but “quite persistently, skilfully and very aggressively.”

So Finland seems to have decided they will joint NATO.

Is Finland making a mistake? The country has a common border with Russia 1,300 km long.

I would be surprised Putin sees no problem with it while he went to the point of invadng Ukraine just because he wants to keep it as a buffer state.

Main reason Putin invaded Ukraine is because they were killing Russians who are native there.

No Russians in Sweden or Finland.

“Russia has no problems with these states, and in this sense, the (NATO) expansion through the accession of these countries does not create an immediate threat for Russia. But the expansion of military infrastructure into this territory will certainly provoke our response,” Putin


What good does NATO membership do without hardware and supporting infrastructure?

Putin's statement was a head fake. Playing for time in order to militarize the border adjacent to Fin.

Putin has been a raging madman for weeks, threatening to nuke anyone within a thousand miles of russia.

Looks like his kgb has finally talkwd some sense into him.

I thought we were gonna have to nuke his bunker there for a while.
