We cooperate with Sweden, with the NATO countries, we will help the members of the alliance if they face serious problems (...) but this is obvious: if Finland joins NATO, then this fact will only harm our relations (from the Russian Federation - note "VO" ). You know that our border is 1300 km. It is not closed. On the contrary, it is a "live" border.
We consider joining NATO as an opportunity, but the choice should be free and open, it is part of the balance.
With words about freedom and openness of choice, the President of Finland clearly makes it clear that many instances of NATO membership (most recently) or talks about such accession are under frank pressure from the main actors of the alliance itself.
