It’s been 3 months since the war between Russia and Ukraine. Russia is still under attack on Ukraine. Russia has announced that it will cut off electricity supply to Finland from Saturday. Russia is believed to have taken this step after Finland’s decision to join NATO. Recently, the President and Prime Minister of Finland announced that their country supports the request to join NATO. Necessary steps are being taken in this regard.
The Prime Minister and President of Finland stated that the Nordic countries should now join the Western Alliance without delay in order to compete with the Soviet Union. Russia is believed to be upset with Finland’s decision and refused to supply electricity to Finland. Finland joining NATO is not good for Russia. Russia has a border of about 1,340 km with Finland. Russia is now concerned about what kind of infrastructure NATO is developing near the Russian border. Russia feared that Sweden and Finland might join NATO. Russia has warned Sweden and Finland in the past that joining NATO would have far-reaching military and political consequences.
Russia is already engaged in strengthening its position near NATO borders. Russian President Vladimir Putin recently ordered the strengthening of security along Russia’s western borders. Russia will also have to use its power along the border with Sweden, while the treaty with Sweden will now move NATO forces closer to the Russian border, which is considered diplomatic against Russia.
