Finland and Sweden finally submit applications to join NATO and Putin is totally in uproar as he foresees a bleak future of his regime in Russia. NATO’s presence around Russia’s borders triggers fear and despair for Putin. The two Nordic nations ‘Finland and Sweden’ have defied Russia’s threat and made a bold step toward securing their future by applying to join NATO.
NATO Sec-General says that Finland and Sweden have officially applied to join the world’s biggest military alliance, a move driven by security concerns over Russia’s war in Ukraine.
“I warmly welcome the requests by Finland and Sweden to join NATO. You are our closest partners,” Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg.
Stoltenberg told reporters on Wednesday after receiving their application letters from the two Nordic countries’ ambassadors.
“This is a historic moment, which we must seize,” Stoltenberg said at NATO headquarters in Brussels.
The applications must now be weighed by the 30 member countries. That process is expected to take about two weeks, although Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has expressed reservations about Finland and Sweden joining.
Putin might be planning a strike against Sweden and Finland sooner than anticipated, as Russia’s Military presence increases around their borders.
