Berlin The next day, nervous tension reigned in Sweden: On Sunday, the ruling Social Democrats decided to join NATO – now the question arises: how will Russia react?

A first gloomy statement came Monday morning from Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov. The decision by Sweden and Finland to abandon their military alliance was a “serious mistake with far-reaching consequences”. Addressing the two Scandinavian countries, he added menacingly: “You mustn’t have any illusions that we’re just going to put up with it.”

Later, Russian President Vladimir Putin followed suit. The expansion of NATO is a problem, it will react to the expansion of the military infrastructure there. Russia must bear in mind that NATO wants to expand its global influence.

Moscow knows geopolitical forces will shift away from Russia when the two countries join the North Atlantic Defense Alliance, but the decision seems set in stone.
