When Finland becomes the Western alliance’s 31st member, the Finnish flag will be hoisted at the Nato headquarters in Brussels.

The ceremony to formally join NATO. will attended by the Us secretary of state Finnish President Sauli Niinisto.

The addition of Finland is a blow for Russian President Vladimir Putin, who often bemoaned Nato’s growth before to his full-scale invasion of Ukraine.

Russia’s border with NATO members has now doubled in length.

In response to Russia’s conflict, Finland and Sweden officially asked to join NATO in May. Finland and Russia share an eastern border of 1,340 km (832 miles).

They had both previously decided to follow a non-alignment policy. Nevertheless, after the invasion of Ukraine, they decided to rely on NATO’s Article 5, which states that an assault on one member is an attack on all.

That effectively implies that all Nato countries, including the US, would defend Finland if it were to come under invasion or assault.

After Russia’s invasion, support for Finland’s membership in NATO increased to 80%.

This will make NATO strong and Finland safer, said by the Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg of NATO.

One observer said, “President Putin has a clear purpose to have less Nato along its borders and no more membership in Europe, but he’s exactly accomplishing the contrary.”

As everything was going on, Dmitry Peskov, a spokesperson for the Kremlin, issued a warning that Russia would be “watching attentively” what transpired in Finland and denounced Nato’s expansion as a”violation of our national security and interests.”

The Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has accused Stockholm of welcoming Kurdish terrorists and allowing them to hold public demonstrations, which has put an end to Sweden’s application for the time being. Hungary still needs to ratify Sweden’s membership.

Nato, according to Mr. Stoltenberg, will make sure that Sweden joins as a new member.

Finland will get a solid security assurance. Finland is now subject to Article 5, our collective defense provision, which is based on the principle of “One for all and all for one.”

The accession process for Helsinki took less than a year, and the event on Tuesday falls on the 74th anniversary of Nato’s creation in 1949.

When Foreign Minister Pekka Haavisto presents US Secretary of State Antony Blinken with the accession documents, it will officially become a member.

The US ambassador to Nato, Julianne Smith, told the BBC that Finland is “a tremendous ally, extremely competent, shares our values, and we anticipate a smooth transition into its appropriate position at the table.”

Although claiming that Russia was being compelled to take countermeasures to tactically and strategically assure its own security, the Kremlin emphasized that it had never had disputes with Helsinki in the same manner that Ukraine had become “anti-Russian.”

On Tuesday a report made by Russian defence minister Sergei Shigu

,Command of short-range Iskander-M ballistic missile system will assume by Belarus, which is capable of carrying nuclear and conventional warheads.
. He said that certain fighter planes from Belarus could potentially transport nuclear bombs.

According to Jens Stoltenberg, NATO has not yet seen any modifications to Russia’s nuclear posture that would need a change by the coalition. He continued by saying that without Helsinki’s approval, no NATO forces would be stationed in Finland.

Now that NATO will have seven members on the Baltic Sea, Russia’s coastline access to St. Petersburg and its tiny outpost of Kaliningrad will be much more cut off.

Russia will be carefully monitoring how NATO uses Finnish land, according to Dmitry Peskov, “in terms of basing military systems and facilities there that will be right up close to our borders, possibly endangering us,” according to the BBC.

According to the Kremlin representative, “measures would be made based on that.”
