Sweden, Finland will meet Russia's response - Moscow

The Russian Foreign Ministry warned Sweden and Finland on Wednesday about the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) accession process, stressing that they will meet Russia's response.

According to the communique, by joining NATO, both countries allowed the alliance to involve them in a "geopolitical game against Russia." The accession, said the ministry, will narrow the possibility for a peaceful dialogue in the Baltic region, complicating more the situation.

The remarks come after Finland and Sweden signed the official protocol to join the alliance. "This is a good day for Finland and Sweden and a good day for NATO," said Jens Stoltenberg at the time.
