Finland is ready to place US nuclear weapons on the Russian border


If Finland becomes a full member of NATO, nuclear weapons can be deployed on its territory, including areas bordering Russia. This was reported by the Iltalehti newspaper.


The Finnish military department stressed that back in July, Helsinki, when considering the issue of the country's entry into the North Atlantic Alliance, promised not to interfere with any activity of the Western bloc in Finland, including the deployment of NATO bases and weapons.

Earlier, Poland announced that it was holding talks with the US government on the deployment of nuclear weapons. President Andrzej Duda said that Warsaw has the potential to participate in the joint use of such weapons. According to the chairman of the Committee on National Security and Defense Affairs of Poland, Yaroslav Kaczynski, such a measure "will increase the intimidation of Russia."

In response to a similar passage by the Poles, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov expressed concern about the appearance of a large number politicianswho are ready to deploy NATO nuclear weapons in their countries, irresponsibly playing with this topic.

Meanwhile, according to the Federation of American Scientists, the US already has about 100 nuclear warheads in Europe, located in Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Turkey.

    This is the work of Putin, his "compliance" {to his "partners." All the time his leadership of NATO is moving towards our borders.
    In response - only dissatisfied words and assurances that Russia will not allow a nuclear war. The Jesuit meaning of these words is that they refer to us and limit US, not the West. It is we who, after such words, will lose face if we threaten the Anglo-Saxons with the use of strategic nuclear weapons first, while this is the only effective tool that we have left, and which was successfully tested on the Americans by the USSR in 1962. States, of course, such assurances only inspire.
    Russia needs to draw conclusions about its leadership betraying its interests before it's too late if it (and we together with it) want to survive and continue its history

      You need a certain impudence and contempt for the audience. Do we really deserve it?

        Alexey Davydov: "We need a certain arrogance and contempt for the audience. Do we really deserve it?"

        Contempt for Russian statements is already fully there, and impudence is an Anglo-Saxon mentality, moreover, impudence is successful if there is no practical reaction to it. So yes, we deserve it. Probably the West somehow threatened (with something we don’t know about) the Russian leadership in such a way that this leadership is afraid

    Article title

    Finland is ready to accommodate nuclear weapon USA on the Russian border

    But the article specifically says only about the readiness of Poland, and not Finland, to place precisely nuclear weapon:

    The Finnish military department stressed that back in July, Helsinki, when considering the issue of the country's entry into the North Atlantic Alliance, promised not to interfere any activity western bloc in the territory Finlandincluding the deployment of NATO bases and arms.
    Earlier in Poland announced that they are negotiating with the US government to host nuclear weapons. President Andrzej Duda said that Warsaw has the potential to participate in the joint use of such weapons. According to the chairman of the Committee on National Security and Defense Affairs of Poland, Yaroslav Kaczynski, such a measure "will increase the intimidation of Russia."

    The words "any activity"Strictly speaking, they do not mean placement exactly nuclear weapons.
    Of course, I may seem like a bore for such verbalism, but the question deserves it.

    What was to be expected? Lavrov wants to stop this gang with his "anxiety"? Remove all stupid statements about non-use of nuclear weapons first. Uncertainty is the strongest form of fear, let this gang figure it out and tremble: will the bear strike first or not?
