The Kremlin is concerned about the decision of Finland and Sweden to join NATO

The Kremlin is concerned about the decision of Finland and Sweden to join NATO

Russian spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that the Kremlin is now very concerned about the situation with the entry of Sweden and Finland into the alliance. The Kremlin has already analyzed the possible consequences, and this is what caused the unrest. 

“We have already said that for us, of course, this is an issue that we are monitoring very carefully. There is reason for a very deep analysis of the possible consequences. We do not think that the accession of Finland and Sweden to NATO will somehow strengthen and improve the security architecture on our continent,” Peskov said.

“We will closely monitor what will happen, we carefully record the statements. There were statements from the Swedish side that Sweden is not going to place any foreign military bases or weapons systems on its territory even if it is a member of the alliance. “, Peskov added.

At the moment, Russia has no territorial disputes with these countries, if Ukraine potentially becomes a member of NATO, then Moscow may have a conflict with the countries of the alliance, and this has irreversible consequences.
