Moscow had previously warned that if Sweden and Finland set up military bases then nuclear weapons will be sent to the European borders.

Russian state television warned, “When NATO bases appear in Sweden and Finland, Russia will have no choice but to neutralise the imbalance and new threat by deploying tactical nuclear weapons.”

In a video uploaded to the VHCK-OGPU channel a voice can be heard saying, “As soon as the president of Finland said they were joining NATO, a whole division of Iskanders, seven of them… is moving towards Vyborg.

“Looks like a new military unit is about to be formed in Vyborg or the region.

“All the equipment is new, Ural trucks are driving it.

“So…get ready Finns… to join NATO.

“New Urals, seven Iskanders, looks like a new military unit is being formed – well done.”

Finnish President Sauli Niinistö said, “A new era is opening. A protected Finland is being born as part of a stable, strong and responsible Nordic region.

“We gain security, and we also share it. It’s good to keep in mind that security isn’t a zero-sum game.”
