Daily Mail: Russia moves troops north after Finland announces its desire to join NATO

Prime Minister of Finland Sanna Marin announced the day before the possibility of her country joining NATO. According to the British newspaper Daily Mail, Russia then began the transfer of heavy weapons, including Bastion missile systems, in a northerly direction.

The Russian missiles seen passing the road sign for Helsinki are the K-300 Bastion-P mobile coastal defense system, designed to destroy enemy surface ships up to strike groups of aircraft carriers.

Meanwhile, as British experts point out, recent opinion polls in Finland showed that 84% of the country's citizens view Russia as a "serious military threat", up 25% from last year.

In response to Marin's rhetoric, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov warned that the move would "not improve" the security situation in Europe. Peskov has made it clear that Russia will have to "balance the situation" with its own measures if Finland and Sweden join NATO.

Both countries have historically avoided membership in the North Atlantic alliance despite close ties to the West so as not to provoke Russia. However, Finns and Swedes have increased defense spending lately, with Helsinki announcing plans to spend £11m on drones and Stockholm adding £243m to its military budget.

    Helsinki announced plans to spend £11m on drones, while Stockholm added £243m to its military budget.

    And that the Finns and Swedes have already become subjects of the woman Lisa (England)? Why did they suddenly switch to pounds sterling?

      British journalists often translate into pounds, for the convenience of their readers, they do not write for the EU or Russia.

    all polls in the West are false and are published in the interests of the United States, it is unlikely that the Finns want to live under the hood of nuclear Iskanders, like the Balts and Poles, and lose the Russian market

    It is not clear why they put themselves under attack in the event of a conflict with NATO, missiles with an unusual warhead will fly there, and due to the small territory, they will be pissed from radiation.

    Well, everyone knows how to draw polls as they should. And preparing public opinion is also not a problem. Everyone knows what pre-election and other technologies are ..... how to make a push in society in order to give the right wave. so the Finns weren’t surprised by anything, and you can’t even mention polls at all. This is the same as a rating agency - lying to the fullest for a specific purpose.

    Finland again plunged into masochism, forgetting the lessons of World War II. I wanted to be in the role of a target for nuclear missiles, to tickle my nerves.

    If there is a complete blockade of Kaliningrad (99,999% probability), then the Finnish border must be seriously strengthened, regardless of whether they are in NATO or not. After all, the Finns, like crests, also dream that when carving up the skin of a dead bear, they will get a lot of things.
