Russia warns it could station nuclear forces in Europe if Finland and Sweden join NATO

Russia warned on Thursday that it could station nuclear forces in and around a Russian enclave in northern Europe and boost its military presence there if Finland and Sweden join the NATO alliance.

Finland and Sweden are considering joining the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and will make a decision in the coming weeks. Both countries have a long tradition of military neutrality, but the Russian invasion of Ukraine has tilted public opinion and political consensus in both countries towards joining the US-led alliance.
