pootler has outstretched moscow imperial lines , like Hitler in 1941-42 or ussr in 70s-80sThe real long term 'sanction' on Putin's Russia, is increased membership in the very organization this war was designed to neuter. We should welcome any applicants before the ink dries.

Finland and Sweden could soon join NATO, prompted by Russian war in Ukraine
(CNN) -- Finland and Sweden could soon join NATO, moves that would likely infuriate Moscow and that officials say would further underscore Russia's strategic error in invading Ukraine. NATO officials told CNN that discussions about Sweden and Finland joining the bloc have gotten extremely serious since Russia's invasion, and US senior State Department officials said the matter came up at this week's NATO foreign ministerial, which was attended by the foreign ministers from Stockholm and Helsinki. Officials said the discussions underline the extent to which Vladimir Putin's invasion has only served to reinvigorate and unify the NATO alliance -- the exact opposite of Putin's stated goals before the war began.
Public opinion in both countries about joining the defensive alliance has shifted significantly as Russia's war in Ukraine wages on, with one former Finnish Prime Minister telling CNN the move to join "was pretty much a done deal on the 24th of February, when Russia invaded." "Just imagine, in however many months, going from a NATO alliance that is 30 to 32 members strong," a senior State Department official told reporters following the foreign ministerial in Brussels. "How can this be anything but a massive strategic blunder for Putin? That was a topic of conversation and multiple sessions over the past couple of days."

The timeline is mid summer, after each parliament acts. Each country's high quality armed forces are already NATO interoperable, each has modern and well maintained weapons systems, each is a democracy and of course each has civilian control of the military. Finland for instance already operates Boeing F/A-18s and has ordered up 64 Lockheed Martin F-35s. Their proximity to Russia has always been a superior source of NATO intelligence to include in the present Ukraine war.
NATO SecGen Jens Stoltenberg and the US SecDef Lloyd Austin said any Russian military action against either country while it is applying to NATO will be met.
Once Finns are a member of NATO, they are insulated from Muscovite imperial aggression. Any negative economic impact can be negated. If Muscovy had to fight a conventional war on many different fronts it would fall in a matter of weeks, and I am being generous with that timeline.
“Destruction Of Their Country” Muscovite Senator’s Warning As Finland Moves Closer To Joining NATO
They're about to join the winning side.…..Finland lost both the Winter War and the Continuation War.
.They're about to join the winning side.
Congrats, that's correct..
Nobody wins a nuclear war.
Congrats, that's correct.
Thank you for stating the obvious.
I never mentioned nuclear war much less said anyone could win a nuclear war. In fact I would never say anyone could win a nuclear war.
So wherever you're coming from kindly turn around and go back and start again plse thx.
"Duh" is right over there.You were the one who blathered on about the “winning side”. Nobody “wins” a war between Russia and the US. Duh.
tell it your buddies in Omsk , Varonezh etc. and by where is your "winner " ussr (EVIL EMPIRE ) ?…..Finland lost both the Winter War and the Continuation War.
unbelievable development, Moscow horde has changed the political landscape totally
tell it your buddies in Omsk , Varonezh etc. and by where is your "winner " ussr (EVIL EMPIRE ) ?
Man drowns in his own faeces after falling into Russian cesspit and being left there for 12 hours by his friend who 'assumed he’d be able to climb out by himself'Andrey Golubov, 36, was using the communal toilet outside an apartment block in Murmansk in north-west Russia, when the wood-cover gave way, and he plunged into the cesspit.www.dailymail.co.uk
Statistics FinlandEven a small country can jump to the top of the world, and this is what Finland has done: in international country comparisons of positive things Finland is often among the top countries next to other Nordic countries.www.stat.fi
"Duh" is right over there.
Because I didn't say anything about a war between Russia and the USA.
The thread is about Finland (also Sweden) joining NATO.
So you're contorting a negative huge leap. Putin is one of the most corrupt but wealthy people on the planet. He's not about to blow it up.
+1.They're about to join the winning side.
When you have something serious to say kindly get back to me thx.Assuming the Russians wouldn’t respond to “Operation Russian Freedom” with everything in their arsenal is laughable.
Almost as laughable, in fact, as blathering on about “the winning side”.
Ukraine meets the NATO proficiency status rating at 300 points.+1.
Moscow empire has 0 chance to with this war
When you have something serious to say kindly get back to me thx.
Cause you've never been anything other than a mild distraction.
You keep distracting your own self in fact.
