Sweden And Finland Apply To Join NATO. Military Equipment Moving Towards Russian Border

Click to see full-size image

On May 17, Swedish Foreign Minister Ann Linde and Finnish President Sauli Niiniste signed NATO membership applications. On May 18, the Swedish and Finnish ambassadors handed over their applications to NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg. These applications will be considered by the North Atlantic Alliance Council. The ratification procedure by all 30 allied parliaments of the military bloc could take up to a year.

Jens Stoltenberg noted that NATO is counting on Finland and Sweden to move quickly toward membership.

He said, «Thank you for your applications. All countries have the right to decide their own security issues, and I welcome Finland and Sweden as members of NATO». This could speed up the process of countries joining NATO.

The official position of the Finnish Foreign Ministry is that their membership is not against any country, but Finland is thinking about its security. Although Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin has previously noted that Finland can no longer rely on a peaceful future next to Russia.

Russian President Vladimir Putin commented on the accession of the countries to NATO. In his opinion, such an act would only aggravate the already difficult international situation, but it would not pose a threat to Russia. Russia will take any action only if NATO expands the military structure in these countries.

 

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov also spoke out about Sweden and Finland joining NATO.

In the video, he states: “Both Finland and Sweden have been participating in NATO military exercises for many years. Their territory is taken into account in NATO’s military planning to move eastward. We will see how their territory will be used in the North Atlantic Alliance, we will draw conclusions. With Germany losing its autonomy, France unsuccessfully pushing its views on strategic autonomy, the EU is merging with NATO in practice, now in membership.”

Despite statements by Russian and Finnish politicians, Russian and Finnish military vehicles were spotted near the Russian-Finnish border.

Iskander tactical missile systems were spotted near the Finnish border. Russia decided to strengthen its northern border in light of Finland’s accession to NATO. The first video shows the Iskander complexes (video taken from Russian territory), while the second video shows the K9 Thunder howitzers (video taken from Finnish territory).

 

Almost all NATO members welcomed Finland and Sweden into the military bloc. However, Turkey was partially opposed. Turkish Foreign Minister Çavuşoğlu had a telephone conversation with Stoltenberg.

As a result, Stoltenberg published the following comment: “Turkey is a valuable ally, and all security concerns must be addressed. We must be together at this historic moment.”

In turn, Cavusoglu responded that the dialogue was rather contradictory and that Stoltenberg was too optimistic. Çavuşoğlu told Stoltenberg that Sweden and Finland support the Kurdistan Workers’ Party and the People’s Self-Defense Units terrorist organizations in all formats, including in trilateral talks and at NATO meetings. This position of Sweden and Finland does not suit Turkey.

At a press conference, Çavuşoğlu said: «We took this position because we believe that countries that support terrorism should not be NATO allies».

Turkey decided to take advantage of a clever political move. In exchange for the approval of new NATO members, the Turkish authorities demanded the re-introduction of F-35 fighter jets and the lifting of sanctions for the purchase of Russian S-400. The requirements for applicants to join NATO were added: Sweden and Finland, among other things, must lift the arms export embargo. Thus, Turkey wants to use concessions in the political aspect to increase its military potential.

Expert Robert Pshel, an independent expert of the Pulaski Foundation, said that the border with NATO will double in Russia, and he described the accession of countries to NATO as a miscalculation of the Kremlin because it was important for Russia not to expand NATO. This shows the consequences of Russia’s war in Ukraine and the accession of Sweden and Finland to NATO are not good news at all.

Sweden has the most mental patients in the world per capita and to fight Russia is a sign of craziness. Last time the dumb Pollacks and Swedish perverts took on Russians at Poltava in Russian Ukraine they lost lost their pants and fled in diapers, so I would caution the NATO warmongers. Leave Mother Russia alone.

This is what happens when you have Soros and Schwab stooges in power. And they are all FEMALES!!! I have pondered for decades as why the old human societies force women out of power positions. Now I understand why. It will be the same when Europe will get under the muslims thumbs. Luckily there are cultures that have brains.

G2 man

Jews have corrupted the west with Feminism, homosexuality, Lesbianism, perversion and now this LGBT sickness, but luckily the Jew agenda of social and moral destruction is facing a lot of resistance in traditional societies like the Orthodox and Muslim world. Western men have been totally emasculated with gender confusion. I feel sorry for them.

You oversize the social issue (cuckolding and the shit) the only matter is race politics finland is almost 100% white and russia is mongrelized so we must side with the Nords.

We cannot move back the war is already triggered so if we have no brakes we must choose the withest side. Jews are in both teams (russian oligarchs are mostly jewish, putin married his daughters to jews, biden cabinet is 99% jewish, french PM is jewish, zelinsky is a kike).

nato + east asians (japan, SK, taiwan) vs the chinese and russian orcs

we cannot escape the fight it’s to late even if the jews triggered it we must fight.

It’s just bluster this integration, Russia has proven to be a real diplomatic nation that only entered the fight as a last resort to protect the Russian people in Ukraine, I don’t think there are any Russians in Sweden and Finland. When you read that Stoltenberg says that every nation has the right to choose its alliance but that the US and NATO are heading for the Solomon Islands because they have a mutual aid agreement with China. The economic war has to be integrated and Putin has understood that it has to continue and increase crescendo. “chi va sano va lontano”

J’admire la diplomatie russe.

“Second largest military” is nowadays crawling in Ukrainian swamp and 21% of its citizens still don’t have indoor toilets. There is indeed huge cultural border between Russia and welfare states Finland&Sweden. Seems to be that all what RF has left is Great Patriotic War Fantasy Factory as religious cult.

Indoor toilets have been something considered self-evident in Sweden and Finland over 50 years even in most rural areas but luxury in Russia. Shit system most likely inseminates shit military.

blind nazi cannot see—USA permanent war economy observed by everyone

reflection

Finland was on the axis side during WW2, at peace negotiations they signed a treaty that they would not join any alliance and would remain neutral in perpetuity, and that was the only reason they were not occupied unlike Germany. The treaty was re ratified between Finland and Russia when the USSR broke up . They have now broken this treaty. It is up to Russia to decide what this now means but could be taken as the peace is now over.

Molotov-Ribbentrop pact was crime against humanity. Hitler and Stalin were allies from August 1939 to mid June 1941.

jorge

What’s the problem? You are allied with Regiment Azov and all the rest of the Banderites, so, by your own words, you are a crime against humanity. Guy, your brain is really fucked.

Sweden and Finland joining NATO is probably not significant to anything other than a hypothetical nuclear war, which is still hopeless for both sides anyway. Ukraine was valuable as a militant/extremist area, which is being lost, and Finland is comparably not prone to this behaviour.

Russia is one of the most corrupted countries on earth while Finland, Sweden and Norway least corrupted, most cleanest and safest places. Domestic violence is also horrible in Russia compared to Nordic countries. Plenty of ethnic Russians living in those countries and happy making that decision.

Frantisek

Every Russian who have driven through Germany, Norway, Sweden and Finland really admired how clean and in good shape places there are. On the other hand they see the terrible condition of especially Russian country side with lousy roads of villages. Most money goes to Russian oligarchs and military industrial complex.

William White

Yes and now we know why.

Turkey has already realized that if Russia goes, Turkey will go next. I don’t like Erdogan, but I can’t say he’s not a Turk nacionalist.
