Finns are not afraid of “Russian threats” due to joining NATO – Finnish Foreign Ministry

Finland is ready for a different kind Russian threats against the backdrop of the country’s accession to NATO, but hopes to maintain good relations with the Russian side, said the Minister of Foreign Affairs Pekka Haavisto.

As the head of the Foreign Ministry emphasized, we are talking about readiness “for any scenarios”:

  • cyber threats,
  • military threats,
  • violation of air or sea space.

“We do not expect anything, but we are ready for anything,” the minister said in an interview with Politico. “All kinds of hybrid and cyber threats during this period, especially when we apply for NATO membership, but we are not yet a member.”

As Haavisto stressed, Finland still hopes to maintain diplomatic relations with the Kremlin and “safe borders.”
