Finland and Sweden joining NATO will not improve their security

Finland and Sweden joining NATO will not improve their security

Moscow, Apr 15 (Prensa Latina) The entry of Finland and Sweden into the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) would reduce stability in Northern Europe and would not improve their security, the Russian Foreign Ministry warned.

NATO thus seeks to continue its geographic expansion and create another flank to threaten Russia, Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in a comment posted Friday on the Moscow diplomatic service’s website.

She added that it is not clear what good could do to Finland and Sweden becoming a new line of confrontation between NATO and Russia. The negative consequences for peace and stability in northern Europe are obvious.

Zakharova believes that both countries would automatically find themselves on NATO’s front line, so they would not be able to strengthen their national security and would have to give up, in fact, a part of their sovereignty, when it comes to defense and foreign policy decisions.

She warned that in the event of joining this military bloc, Helsinki and Stockholm would have to face the consequences of such a step for bilateral relations with Moscow and the entire European security architecture, which is currently in crisis.

She also thinks that the incorporation of these Scandinavian countries into NATO would deprive them of their role as promoters of constructive, cohesive initiatives in the international arena.

The decision to abandon their policy of neutrality and Sweden and Finland’s interest in joining NATO gained momentum in the wake of Russia’s military operation in Ukraine, which began on February 24.
