The admission of Finland and Sweden to NATO will destabilize Europe

The author of the article is Diana Albaum, former foreign policy adviser to the US Congress, head of the Washington-based Center for International Policy.

In her opinion, Russia did not pose a real threat to either Sweden or Finland. However, the stockpiles of weapons that will inevitably arise as a result of their accession to NATO may create incentives for Russia to respond.

The risk of an exchange of nuclear strikes will increase significantly. In general, in her opinion, “the inclusion of the former Warsaw Pact countries in NATO after the end of the Cold War was already a mistake.” This reinforced the feeling in Russia that she was surrounded, and that this posed a threat to her security.

“The US Senate, which must agree to the ratification of protocols that add new members to the alliance, should think carefully before stamping the admission of new candidates,” Olbaum said.
