Russia threatens to deploy nukes if Sweden, Finland join NATO | American Military News

“If Sweden and Finland join NATO, the length of the alliance’s land border with Russia will more than double. Naturally, it will be necessary to strengthen these borders,” Medvedev added. “If this is the case, there can be no more talk of any nuclear-free status for the Baltic – the balance must be restored.”

Medvedev accused the U.S. of “broadcasting its welcome sign” for countries to join NATO. “And what does this mean? This means that Russia will have more official adversaries.”
