Finland leaders announce support for Nato membership, Russia warns of consequences
0 Comments

Finland’s leaders Thursday came out in favour of applying to join the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO), and Sweden could do the same within days, in a historic realignment on the continent more than two months after Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine sent a shiver of fear through Moscow’s neighbours.

The Kremlin reacted by warning it will be forced to take retaliatory “military-technical” steps.

On the ground, meanwhile, Russian forces pounded areas in central, northern and eastern Ukraine, including the last pocket of resistance in Mariupol, as part of its offensive to take the industrial Donbas region, while Ukraine recaptured some towns and villages in the northeast.
