Finland does not exclude the possibility of joining NATO in the event of a “threatening” situation for the country

50
Finland, in the event of a change in the situation for the worse, might think about joining NATO, reports TASS Statement by President Sauli Niinistö.




“The current Finnish government drafted its work program a year ago, and now the same thing was repeated in the report on foreign policy and security policy (submitted by the government on Friday): that we do not rule out the possibility of applying for NATO membership, we don’t close this door. But - this was not emphasized in the report - if changes occur in our security situation and it becomes problematic, threatening, then we can think about it. And this, from my point of view, is perfectly normal ",
said the president on the foreign policy debate.

He noted that “in matters of international politics (for example, in the NATO question), Sweden and Finland do not have to make similar decisions all the time, this is hardly possible, but this does not mean that the two countries cannot significantly influence each other’s views.”

According to the president, "it would be better if the basic steps (of both states) coincided."

Ten days ago, at the congress of its own party, the Finnish Prime Minister Juha Sipila said that applying for NATO membership required broad support from the country's citizens.

“A year ago, we wrote down in the government’s program that Finland is a country outside the military blocs, which, however, allows for the possibility of applying for membership in NATO. This item, in my opinion, still remains a very good and functional position, ”he said.

“A possible application for membership in NATO would require thorough deliberation and wide popular unity in this matter. I consider it important if one day we come to such a decision, to hold a referendum, ”the prime minister said.

    By and large, the state is more or less independent at the moment, wants to put on a clamp and finally turn into another mongrel. One more, one more, is not so important. Although there is still time to think.

      And on this, the quiet measured life of the Finns will end, from the day of joining NATO, they will become "cockroaches under a slipper" - that is, under the gun. (do you want this Finns?)

            Well, Finland risks getting the first number if someone from NATO creates a threatening situation for Russia. However, she already creates such conversations.

          Politics is a subtle thing and not everyone can understand the details. There is a completely different game. It will be unforgivable if we surrender Finland to NATO. Isn't that clear? Or will we "grind" their generals again at the most inopportune time for this? Oh well.

        Here is how it will look? There was a danger, they convened their seim, discussed, adopted a resolution, wrote a nutrition, considered it, convened a meeting, gave the green light ...
        Gentlemen, dates, if you don’t have time to say meow, and not what to assess the level of danger.

      state more or less independent


      Independence by size (army, territory, industry, population) is determined. This fly can be independent, shredded and flew away ... But the Finns, who bring a bigger fist to the face, will fall under that. Checked.

      Many of them are so independent in Europe. During the Warsaw Pact, silk and quiet sat.

    While Finland is outside the military blocs, the threat to its security is purely nominal, at the level of illegal border crossing, poaching and other "little things" ... yes
    As soon as it joins someone, it will turn into a real one. NATO is not a priori a guarantee of security, rather heartburn, which then can not be eliminated hi

    According to the president, "it would be better if the basic steps (of both states) coincided."
    This has already happened in history. When Finland was a swollen province of Sweden without the right to crow for any reason, self-government, property and self-defense. Those. everything coincided - to the smallest detail. But then (damn it, history always repeats !!!) Russia came, handed the stars of the metropolis, gave Finland parliament, granted the Constitution, the right to language and land, and guaranteed protection and representation in the Russian empire.
    Why am I ... Yes, all the same, that history repeats itself - i.e. in this case too, we do not exclude any possibilities.

      That's right-give the little finger to Finn — he will bite your hand off later ... We’re not already confronted with ushlepans. We’re scary of them. One of them told us that the Finn will shoot at you from the bush — he won’t move until you pass him and you won’t put a bullet in the back of your head. You won’t budge. I don’t know how it was then

    What kind of threatening situations can the Finns have? -Do we stop pushing them for pennies? -Maybe we won’t let them chop it in Karelia or what? We won’t let them get drunk here until the screeching squeal? -I swear personally! -If I’ll not take captive Finnish filth here, I want to laugh, want to minus-I’ll put everyone on the stake. I’ll come to them-if I survive after me there will be no living Finn — only corpses. From Karelia these geeks are enough ... Because I know ... if they come here to us ourselves and the children with life definitely need to say goodbye ...

    At first glance, Finland is an independent state, but if you take a closer look, it’s not! Since the time of disconnection from Russia, many states in England, Germany, France and the USSR have constantly put pressure on it! She managed to resist the look of a virtuoso political game (or rather to be good, both yours and ours)! But at present, in the current situation in Europe, even with the tenacity of Finland, the EU will force Finland to join NATO!

    All the Baltic states and Finns are no exception, as they overestimate their role in the world community. In order to seem more significant, they always compose scenarios of Russian attacks on their territory. In fact, nobody needs them for nothing, and even less so for Russia. Of course, in addition to Finland they will give a little money, a trillion dollars, for example, then it will be possible to consider the issue of temporary inclusion of this state in Russia.

    Seichas is escalating the situation with the "demonization" of Russia. The Western world, led by the United States in 2014, after the Crimea story, was surprised to realize its "impotence". They began to inspect their capabilities and realized with horror that Western societies were not morally ready for a real war. At the moment, there is a hasty attempt to consolidate and rally the already existing members of the alliance, as well as to pull up everyone possible to put pressure on Russia. Finland will join NATO, the alliance will receive another financial and resource donor.
