According to the "Moscow Communist Youth League Member", the Finnish president office said earlier that the two parties were direct and frank, and Nonito notified the Russian side in the call that Finland planned to join NATO in the near future. According to the Kremlin palace, Putin has clearly informed Nigito on the phone that the changes in Finnish foreign policy may have a negative impact on the relationship between the two countries.

However, he also reminded that Sweden and Finland will actually abandon the nuclear state -free state. "We can roughly imagine the situation of the two countries after the status of the member states. The border has increased by about 1,300 kilometers to defend this boundary, so you need to add military deployment and so on. "

Gruhko warns that if NATO will advance nuclear forces and infrastructure to the Russian border, Russia will take full prevention measures.
