Russia believes that Finnish and Swedish NATO membership will not contribute to European stability.
“We have repeatedly said that the NATO alliance remains a tool for confrontation. Its enlargement will not bring stability to the European continent,” Russian government spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
NATO membership has become a highly discussed issue in both Sweden and Finland after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
Last week, the US State Department stated that Finnish and Swedish membership was a topic during the recent meeting of NATO foreign ministers.
