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.
