Sweden and Finland apply to join NATO

Finland’s accession to NATO will be a “strategic nightmare” for the alliance, as it will increase its vulnerability. This was stated by a senior fellow at the Scowcroft Center for Strategy and Security Emma Ashford.

“Finnish territory is a strategic nightmare. This will dramatically increase the alliance’s vulnerability to Russia,” says Emma Ashford in an article for Bloomberg. She clarifies that the whole point is in the Russian-Finnish border, the length of which is more than 1,200 kilometers.

The expert also noted that the admission of Finland and Sweden to the North Atlantic Alliance makes NATO “a cumbersome set of member states.” “It does not take a genius to understand that 32 countries will be even more difficult to manage than 30,” Ashford concludes.

Earlier, Finland and Sweden applied for membership in NATO. Then Turkey blocked the start of negotiations on the entry of these countries into the alliance and put forward a number of requirements that Finland and Sweden must fulfill before submitting applications. Political scientist Johan Beckman said that Britain is going to provoke a conflict between Finland and Russia. Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev warned that Russia would respond to Finland and Sweden for joining the North Atlantic Alliance.
