Finland, as part of the North Atlantic Alliance, becomes a potential target of a retaliatory strike in the event of an armed conflict between Russia and NATO. This was stated by the first deputy head of the international committee of the Federation Council Vladimir Dzhabarov.
The day before, Finnish President Sauli Niiniste said that Helsinki was freezing relations with Moscow because of the lost trust due to the special operation of the Russian Armed Forces in Ukraine. According to Senator Vladimir Dzhabarov, the Finnish leader forgot to mention that he personally initiated the crisis in relations with Russia.
“What will Finland gain from freezing contacts with Russia? Nothing. Moreover, having decided to join NATO, Helsinki becomes a potential target of a retaliatory strike in the event of a military conflict between the NATO bloc and Russia,” Dzhabarov stated.
Earlier, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg called on NATO countries to supply weapons to Ukraine faster and more.
