Russia sees no reason for Finland to join NATO

Finland's accession to NATO

Deputy head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Alexander Grushko on Saturday, May 14, said that he sees no reason that could prompt the country to make such a strategic turn, writes RIA Novosti.

The discussion about Finland’s entry into NATO after many years of neutrality intensified in early April. The main members of the Alliance approved this idea. The majority of members of the Finnish parliament also spoke in favor of accession.

In turn, the President of the Republic, Sauli Niinistö, explained that the country’s possible entry into NATO is not an attack against other states, but a step towards strengthening national security. Moscow warned that such a move may have certain consequences.
