On Monday, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the accession of Finland and Sweden to NATO will not lead to retaliatory measures by Moscow if it does not include the expansion of the bloc’s military infrastructure in its territory.

As for expansion? […] From the alliance of Finland, Sweden and Russia […] He has no problems with these states. From this point of view, the expansion of these countries does not pose direct threats to us, Putin said during a summit with the leaders of the member states of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO).

But expanding the military infrastructure in those areas will certainly cause a reaction from us. And we will see what will be based on the threats that are created for us,” the president added.

Similarly, the Russian President accused NATO of trying to exert its influence in more and more regions of the world.

The Euro-Atlantic alliance is beyond its geographical purpose, [la región] The Euro-Atlantic region is trying to become increasingly involved in international affairs, controlling international security situations, and influencing them – not in the best way – in other regions of the world. “This certainly requires more attention on our part,” Putin said.
