ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Putin says Russia will respond if NATO bolsters Sweden, Finland militarily | The World” – below is their description.

Russia’s aggression in Ukraine has pushed Sweden to follow Finland in declaring it’s intent to join the NATO alliance. Sweden’s ruling Social Democratic Party will back a bid to end more than 200 years of military non-alignment, just days after Finland’s formally announced its intention to do the same. David Dunn, an international politics professor at the University of Birmingham, tells The World it’s a “momentous act” by both nations.
