Finland and Sweden will announce this weekend whether they will join NATO

Finland and Sweden are set to reveal later this week whether they will join NATO.

The two Nordic countries have reversed decades of military neutrality since Putin launched his invasion of Ukraine on February 24.

Finland’s president and the country’s MPs will announce their decision on Thursday, with Sweden’s ruling party set to follow suit on Sunday.

President Sauli Niinistö and parliamentarians in Helsinki are more than likely to confirm the country’s entry to the Western military alliance on May 12.

Swedish PM Magdalena Andersson said Sweden will become 'more vulnerable' if it does not join NATO

Finland's PM Sanna Marin said last week: 'Russia¿s invasion of Ukraine has changed the security policy situation in such a way that there is no going back to the way things were.'
