0

A geopolitical front is opening between the West and Russia, at a time when the economic-energy war between the two world poles is in full swing. Finland is moving at full speed towards NATO membership, a fact that will drastically change the balance in the wider region of Europe and will skyrocket the geopolitical escalation between Moscow and the West.

Finland, overwhelmed by the Russian invasion of Ukraine but also by the intense past of conflict with Russia, is making a geostrategic turn of historical dimensions. Helsinki is ready to abandon geopolitical and military neutrality and join the North Atlantic Alliance. He intends to do so, in fact, under the Russian threats, which have intensified recently, as the information from Helsinki “ignites”, for submitting NATO membership.

Today, the country’s leadership is openly and unequivocally in favor of joining the North Atlantic Alliance. In a joint statement, Finnish President Sauli Niinistστε and Prime Minister Sana Marin said: “During this spring, a major debate took place on Finland’s possible accession to NATO. It took time for Parliament and society as a whole to formulate their position on the issue. It took time for close international contacts with NATO and its member states, as well as with Sweden. We wanted to give the discussion the space it needed.
Now that the time for decision-making is approaching, we declare our equal views and to inform the parliamentary groups and parties. NATO membership would boost Finland’s security. As a NATO member, Finland would strengthen its entire defense alliance. Finland must apply for NATO membership without delay. We hope that the national steps that are still needed to make this decision will be taken quickly in the coming days. “

In the same vein are the statements of Finnish Foreign Minister Peka Haavisto, who pointed out that “Finland’s accession to NATO would enhance security and stability in the Baltic Sea region and Northern Europe. “Finland is a regional security provider and would further strengthen NATO as a future ally.”

Sweden is also on the way to NATO

The issue of joining the North Atlantic Alliance is also being raised convincingly in Sweden, where the government and the political world, assisted by the domestic media, are discussing this possibility with greater fervor than ever before. In fact, according to today’s publication of the Expressen newspaper, during a government meeting to be held on Sunday, it will be decided to join NATO.

Stoltenberg: Finland’s accession process to NATO is fast

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg welcomes the joint statement by Finnish President Sauli Niisto and Prime Minister Sana Marin in support of NATO membership without delay, stressing that “if Finland decides to will be warmly accepted into NATO and the accession process will be smooth and fast “.

In particular, Stoltenberg said: “I welcome the joint statement by President Nisto and Prime Minister Marin in support of an application for NATO membership without delay. This is a sovereign decision of Finland, which NATO fully respects. If Finland decides to apply, it will be warmly accepted into NATO and the accession process will be smooth and fast. Finland is one of NATO’s closest partners, a mature democracy, a member of the European Union and a major contributor to Euro-Atlantic security. I agree with President Niisto and Prime Minister Marin that joining NATO will strengthen the security of both NATO and Finland. “Finland’s accession will show that NATO’s door is open and that Finland decides its own future.”
