Finland, Sweden cease to be non-alignment symbols, turn into NATO periphery- Diplomat says

Moscow, SANA-Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko told TASS on Wednesday that Finland and Sweden, which used to be symbols of military non-alignment and made a great contribution to building European security, are now turning into the periphery of NATO.

“It’s sad. These are two countries whose international reputation was largely based on the policy of military non-alignment, on respect for their contribution to the formation of collective principles in the area of European security, the development of documents in the field of military stability and transparency. They have always been an important platform for international dialogue. Now they’re becoming NATO’s periphery, but that’s their choice,” the diplomat said.
