Russia has demanded that Finland and Sweden not join NATO, warning that such a move would not lead to stability in Europe.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters that NATO was “a tool of conflict.”

His remarks came after US defense officials described Russia’s invasion of Ukraine as a “major strategic mistake.” This will lead to NATO expansion.

The U.S. delegation expects both Nordic countries to submit their candidatures for membership in the coalition. Probably since June.
