The head of the Finnish intelligence service called Russia's reaction to Finland's desire to join NATO surprising

Finland is analyzing the Russian reaction to the filing of a joint application with Sweden to join the NATO bloc. Recall that Finland and Sweden submitted such an application in May, and already in June they expect a positive decision on their request. The declarative reason for abandoning its long-term military neutrality is “the threat from Russia”.

The head of the Finnish intelligence service SUPO, Antti Pelttari, in an interview with FT, answered the question of Russia's reaction to the desire of the Finnish authorities to include the country in the North Atlantic military bloc.

Pelttari said that for him the reaction of Russia is "surprising", because at the moment "from the Russian side, in fact, nothing is happening."

Head of the Finnish Security Police:

It's good and amazing at the same time. Let's hope it stays that way.

Antti Pelttari did not explain what other position Helsinki expected from Russia after Finland filed an application to join the Western military alliance. Entry of Russian troops into Finland, a nuclear strike on Helsinki?..

Recall that in connection with the decision of the Finnish and Swedish governments to join NATO, Russia responded by saying that the northwestern regions would be saturated with troops and weapons. It should also be recalled that so far for Finland and Sweden, the president of Turkey has stood on the way to NATO. According to Erdogan, Stockholm and Helsinki must stop supporting terrorism before Ankara votes for their admission to the alliance. The Turkish president is referring to the refusal to provide asylum and financial support to the leaders of the Kurdish armed groups and the Fethullah Gülen organization, through which the United States tried to carry out a military coup in Turkey several years ago.

    Doesn't it surprise you, gentlemen, that nuclear missiles have ALREADY (!) been aimed at your capitals?
    Point not bench-press?
    Detailed plans for the destruction of important transport and industrial centers have ALREADY been prepared.

        So it is necessary that OUR propaganda pour from each iron.
        It is about the fact that "and you are drying up" and already certainly in NUCLEAR fire.
        For, I believe that a couple of years ago, our nuclear weapons did not stand at a five-minute readiness to strike at Sweden and Finland.
        And for today it's SURELY worth it!

              Or maybe, for starters, stop making regular clowning with threats of the use of nuclear weapons, which invariably become meaningless background noise? And then there again Rogozin threatens with a nuclear strike, this time Bulgaria and Montenegro for not letting Lavrov's plane into their airspace. — https://twitter.com/Rogozin/status/1533530946992951296

        It seems that the descendants of the Mannergey will have to translate the phrase "And we are for what" into Finnish, well, or learn in the original language, I sincerely hope that it will come in handy soon,

      Excuse me, but why aim nuclear missiles at the capital of Finland? What is there?
      I thought that nuclear missiles aimed at nuclear missile silos, at military enterprises and installations, and not at the cities themselves.

        The destruction of the decision-making center, as well as quite a capital of the state and a political and industrial center.
        So, that - is subject!
        I thought that nuclear missiles aimed at nuclear missile silos, at military enterprises and facilities,
        Are there many nuclear mines in Moscow?
        Or in St. Petersburg?
        But not one at a time, but dozens of nuclear warheads are aimed at them!

    for him, the reaction of Russia is “surprising” because at the moment “from the Russian side, in fact, nothing is happening”
    What should have happened? Russia should have been hysterical, how are the Poles fighting the Balts today, yelling about the "Russian threat"? Or maybe a preemptive strike? Probably they were waiting for the first one and, as always, they miscalculated, and now they are surprised. What needs to be done our country will do, do not hesitate.

      Truly said. Extra noise, threats and other such things are an additional motivation and justification for the entry of these countries into NATO, as well as an incentive for a positive decision by the members of this organization. Russia will do everything, what and how it is necessary to stop this new threat, everyone understands this, but they really want to reduce our capabilities by increasing the borders with NATO by more than 1000 km. They are trying to pull apart and disperse our forces, and the availability of our territories for their first strike is increasing dramatically, there is nothing good for us here, and for them too. But our country is no stranger, now it is not 41 years old. different weapons, completely different possibilities for striking anywhere on the planet. It will not work to take Russia to starvation, they themselves will die faster.

    What's so amazing about it? It is akin to a reaction when a person "steps" into a cow's cake or feces deposited by anyone and anywhere ...
    Just wondering what these Finns expected from Russia - saluting fire or a nationwide triple "Hurray!"?

    Well, if they are planning a NATO attack on us in the hopes that we will use up our BC in Ukraine and they will have an easy walk, then yes, everything is fine, the beautiful Marquise, with the exception of a trifle. There are no ours on the other side of the border, and, accordingly, no one will be dishonest with civilians and cities. The flashing security front is a minimal surprise. And there are more, not bloodthirsty at all and with a minimum of body movements. A hint of Ukrainians in the west is worse than an elephant in a china shop, plus inflation among the poor.

      You are in vain, so scary. Our liberal government will again sing about "innocent civilians", about "a child's tear" (with an M-16 in their hands), about "business and nothing personal", about "beauty that will save the world." a thousand reasons. And now why touch "dear partners and colleagues."

    Pelttari said that for him the reaction of Russia is "surprising", because at the moment "from the Russian side, in fact, nothing is happening."

    Another thing is surprising - the insane actions of the Finnish leadership, which are actually aimed at unleashing a full-scale military conflict on the territory of their own country, similar to the Ukrainian one.
    For even the proven readiness of the Finns to join NATO already implies the provision of their territory to the alliance, for actions that the American leadership of NATO deems necessary. For example, the organization of provocative launches of cruise missiles from NATO ships from the Finnish territorial waters of the Gulf of Bothnia through Finnish territory, against Russian targets (ships in the Gulf of Finland, Russian border infrastructure on land). Or maybe the overland transit of NATO special forces to carry out border provocations. And all this under the verbal veil of protecting Finland from alleged Russian aggression ("preemption", etc.).

    I tell the head of the Finnish intelligence service SUPO Antti Pelttari that Finland will "understand" Russia's reaction to joining NATO (through its own perceptions) when the "Caliber", "Daggers", "Sarmatians" take up combat duty. "Understand" through "the transformation of Finland into a target for a future nuclear strike. "Understand" the code The Saimaa Canal will cease to bring benefits and profits, Russian timber will no longer be supplied to its factories, again it will "want" gas and oil at affordable prices, "want" to forget in "bilaterally" about the existing territorial unresolved problems ... "Understand" - through growing unemployment, increased military spending, the destruction of flora and fauna by military training grounds, exercises. Mr. Pelttari (probably already retired) will also remember about the "fat" and quiet times of once neutral Finland ... Although ...
