New Delhi, Jan. Russia Finland Tensions: The ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine has not taken its name, meanwhile tensions between Russia and Finland have escalated. In fact, Finland and Sweden are going to apply for NATO membership. Russia has strongly opposed the move, threatening to destroy Finland. Finland, which wants to join NATO, will be wiped out in just 10 seconds. The question is whether the Finnish army will face Russian troops in this situation. What is Russia’s claim?
1- A senior aide to Russian President Vladimir Putin has threatened Britain with nuclear weapons, saying it would take only three minutes. Alexei Zhuravlev, deputy chairman of the Duma’s Security Council, said Finland’s desire to join NATO would be destroyed in just 10 seconds. It is noteworthy that Juravle’s threats came at a time when Putin’s military has been pushed back in Ukraine and countries such as Finland and Sweden are now opting to join NATO.
2- Finland has announced its support for joining NATO. Following this, on Saturday, Russia cut off its neighbor’s electricity supply. Finland imports 10 percent of its total electricity consumption from Russia. Alexei said that if Finland wanted to join this camp, our destination would be completely legal. “If the United States threatens our country, we have a sarmat (Satan-2 missile) for you,” he said. You will turn to ashes if you think of destroying Russia’s presence.
3- Alexei said Finland claims to be with the United States. He said Finland should be grateful to Russia for being a country today. Sharma said he could sit in Serbia and strike with a missile, a nuclear bomb to Britain. He said it would take 200 seconds to reach the hypersonic missile if it was attacked from Kaliningrad. Alexei said that we will not deploy strategic weapons on the Finnish border, but we have Kinsal class missiles, which can reach Finland in 20 or 10 seconds. He said Russia would expand its military presence on its western border. The Russian official said Britain and the United States had persuaded Finland to join NATO.
NATO is a big reason
1- The manner in which Russia has invaded Ukraine and wreaked havoc has caused concern in Russia’s other neighbors and around it. Russia’s neighbors are concerned about their security. This is why most countries want to protect themselves by joining NATO. They think that if they are members, the United States and other major NATO nations will protect themselves. The ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine has been going on for three months now. One of the reasons Russia attacked Ukraine was that Ukraine was ready to join NATO. Russia never wants any of its neighbors to join NATO.
2- As for Finland, its border with Russia is about 1340 km2. There were no long-running conflicts between the two countries, but in World War II the two were at odds with each other. In the midst of all this, Russia has increased its concerns by launching an attack on Ukraine. As well as Sweden is a neighbor of Finland. Russia has repeatedly infiltrated Swedish airspace. Both countries feel insecure with Russia. This is the reason why Finland and Sweden want to join NATO. Citizens of both countries are in favor of joining NATO given the current situation, whereas very few people wanted it until a few years ago.
