WorldRussiaFinland and Sweden's cusp raising alarms

Finland and Sweden joining NATO are raising alarms. Russia is answering with an offensive approach.

At the summit, NATO branded Russia the biggest threat to western security. The conference occurred after the Russian missiles struck on Kremenchuk shopping mall on Monday. 18 were killed, 59 were injured in the missile strike, and many went missing. While Russia called the attack staged and false western countries and the Ukrainian government repeatedly called the attack brutal and well planned.

Now NATO has decided to include Sweden and Finland to NATO to promote the security of the European countries.

Russia’s war against Ukraine has shattered peace in Europe and has created the biggest security crisis in Europe since the second world war.” NATO Secretary-general Jens Stoltenberg has said in a press meeting.

“Nato has responded with strength and unity,” Jens said about the alliance.

Russia is not taking the alliance as very plausible and has posted various statements regarding the coalition. Including Putin regarding the collaboration ‘an act of asserting supremacy. ‘

“Everything was fine between us, but now there might be some tensions; there certainly will,” Putin warned.

Earlier, about the Kremenchuk strike, Putin said, ” Our army does not attack any civilian infrastructure sites. We have every capability of knowing what is situated where.”

The US also deployed the V army corps in Poland to increase security on Wednesday. All this is done to enhance security, says the US.

Russia took an offensive approach in eastern Ukraine on Thursday. Putin has said earlier, “If military contingents and military infrastructure were deployed there, we would be obliged to respond symmetrically and raise the same threats for territories where threats have arisen for us.”

As the summit was going on, Russia intensified the attack on Ukraine. Russian missiles have attacked the southern Mykolaiv region close to the front lines, which has killed five people in a residential building. Russia has denied the claim and said its military had hit a training base.

On Wednesday, Zelensky had asked NATO for modern weapons and financial aid.
