Russia Moves Weapons as Finland, Sweden Want to Join NATO

Finland might be the next country that bloodthirsty Russian dictator Vladimir Putin would love to invade.

Russia just moved heavy military equipment towards the Finnish border, right after Finland and its neighbor Sweden made it clear they are very seriously considering joining the US-led NATO alliance.

Putin’s War Will Make Finland, Sweden American Allies

Putin invaded Ukraine on February 24.

Since then, Russian savages have managed to commit thousands of war crimes and acts of genocide against Ukrainian civilians, including gang rapes of women, children, and even babies.

Reports out of Finland and Sweden made it clear on Monday that both countries are considering applying for membership in NATO.

Finland is expected to formally apply for NATO membership next month. Sweden will likely follow suit, with both of them possibly becoming official allies of the United States and the other members as early as this summer.

Ukraine’s desire to join NATO and the European Union to become a secure, prosperous, and full-fledged western nation has technically been the reason Putin and his murderous hordes have invaded.

Although, the deeper reason is the Russian tyrant denies the Ukrainians’ right to exist as a nation and people.

Sanna Marin, the Finnish Prime Minister, declared earlier this week her country would see a major development with respect to its potential application for NATO membership by mid-summer.

A recent public opinion poll by a market research company in Finland shows 84% of the nation’s population now considers Russia a “significant military threat,” which is a 25% increase from last year.

Finland, a western nation, remained formally neutral during the Cold War under constant threat from the former Soviet Union, in a policy known as “Finlandization.”

Putin Moves to Threaten Finland Invasion Immediately

As soon as the latest comments in favor of NATO membership emerged out of Finland, Russia reacted fiercely, at first with a warning by Putin’s mouthpiece, Dmitry Peskov, on Monday.

Peskov declared euphemistically that Finland and Sweden’s potential decision to join NATO isn’t going to “improve the security situation in Europe.”

Last week, a lawmaker from Putin’s rubber-stamp Russian parliament, Vladimir Dzhabarov, declared Finland’s decision to join NATO would mean its “destruction” by Russia.

On Tuesday, however, there are reports that Russians are reacting in more tangible ways, namely, by transferring heavy military equipment toward their long border with Finland.

A video shared online appeared to show the moving of two advanced Russian missile systems up a road in northwest Russia, leading towards Finland’s capital Helsinki, according to a report by The Daily Mail.

The Russian missile systems in question are believed to be of the K-300P Bastion-P type, which are mobile systems for coastal defense, technically supposed to be designed for destroying naval vessels.

The move also comes after on Monday, NATO announced there will be two naval groups of 16 ships led by the Netherlands. They will patrol the coast of Baltic Sea countries and NATO members, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Poland.

Finland shares an 830-mile-long border with Russia, while Sweden’s island of Gotland, right in the middle of the Baltic Sea, is frequently mentioned as a favorite takeover target by Putin’s propagandists.
