The peaceful countries of Finland and Sweden have been threatened by Russia with “serious military and political repercussions” should they decide to join NATO.
Moscow warned that NATO has expanded too far eastwards and Russia fear this poses a national threat to their security.
Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Finland and Sweden “should not base their security on damaging the security of other countries.”
The Russian spokeswoman added, “Their accession to NATO can have detrimental consequences and face some military and political consequences.”
Russia’s Foreign Ministry reiterated the grave threat on Twitter, she said, “We regard the Finnish government’s commitment to a military non-alignment policy as an important factor in ensuring security and stability in northern Europe.”
Russia’s Foreign Ministry added, “Finland’s accession to @NATO would have serious military and political repercussions.”
On Friday satellite images show that Russian troops and artillery are building up in Brest, Belarus which is 10 miles from the Polish border.
Within weeks Putin placed 200,000 troops on the Ukrainian border then invaded and US intelligence has said Moscow have assembled more than 50 heavy equipment transporters.
Some Russian missiles are landing on NATO’s doorstep with explosions being reported on the Polish border.
According to a map by BNO News, Russian attacks have now been reported with some very close to the Polish border.
GB News’ Tom Harwood tweeted on Thursday, “Many of these are attacks that are taking place just miles from NATO’s borders.
“Look how close some of those explosions are to Poland.”
