Russia warns Finland and Sweden   

Russia has issued a stern warning that Finland and Sweden should put their security under threat by joining NATO or be prepared to face dire consequences. This warning issued by Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has made international media rounds. The United States and some European countries have claimed that this only proves that Russia is adopting expansionist policies.   

The Russian President had threatened that the countries trying to provide Ukraine assistance against Russia would face unprecedented consequences. Russia seems to have followed this up with a warning for Finland and Sweden. Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova warned that Finland and Sweden should not even think of joining NATO and putting their security at stake.
