After both Nordic countries expressed their support for the Ukrainian government against the Russian invasion that began on Thursday, they were invited to participate in the extraordinary NATO summit as observers, since they do not currently participate in the Atlantic Alliance.

According to reports by Newsweek, Finland and Sweden should not base their own security on harming the security of other countries.

She warned that the accession of Finland and Sweden to NATO, which is first and foremost a military alliance, would have serious politico-military consequences that would require a response from our country.

Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin had let it be known last Thursday that Russia's invasion of Ukraine would change the direction of the debate on her country's NATO membership.

In recent hours, the Ukrainian Prime Minister, Volodymir Zelenski, thanked Sweden and Ukraine for the military, technical and humanitarian aid provided.
