Finland’s Ministry of Defence Carl Haglund says he believes Russia’s actions in Ukraine have brought Finland and Sweden closer to NATO now than they ever were in the past.
During his party’s conference in the southern coastal city of Hanko on Saturday, the Swedish People’s Party (RKP) Chair Carl Haglund spoke of the Ukraine crisis and its ramifications, defending Ukraine’s right to sovereignty and self-determination.
“In a free Europe, every country is free to decide on its own development, without an army situated behind the border threatening to barge in,” said Haglund.
Haglund says he is of the opinion that the crisis in Ukraine has added momentum to the NATO debate in Finland.
