FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Not what Putin wanted : How will Russia respond to NATO bids by Finland and Sweden? • FRANCE 24” – below is their description.

Never did it happen during the Cold War. All these years later, #Russia’s border with #NATO is about to double. #Finland stays unmoved by threats out of the Kremlin. Same with neighboring Sweden, so concerned with Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine that it is ready to call time on two centuries of neutrality.
