Both in support for Ukraine and Country Email List when thinking about national defense: for example, there is great support for increasing the military budget. Is this also generating geopolitical rapprochement with Sweden? There are many talks between Country Email List Finland and Sweden to assess a joint application for NATO membership. The situation in both countries is somewhat different. In 1948, Finland signed the Agreement of Friendship, Cooperation and Country Email List Mutual Assistance with Stalin's Soviet Union that reflected a kind of monitored neutrality and lasted until 1992.
This treaty allowed Finland to maintain its Country Email List independence and its democratic system despite being in a zone of Soviet geopolitical influence. That generated a certain self-censorship, in politics and in the press, about what was happening in the Soviet neighbor. That is why today there is talk of a possible "Finnishization" of Ukraine. Sweden Country Email List has a different story: 200 years of some kind of neutrality, no wars. So they have more historical grounds to think that it is better to be left out, while Finland has had many more wars and conflicts with the “big neighbour”. There is a saying that Sweden will fight Russia to the last Finn. Finland is a Country Email List sort of buffer zone against Russia.
Until recently, it was thought that an Country Email List alternative to NATO could be an explicit military alliance between Sweden and Finland, but with the invasion of Ukraine the train for this option has already passed, Sweden's military weight is not so great Country Email List while NATO offers a nuclear umbrella. You once mentioned that the Finnish right, within the framework of the agreement with Moscow, always tried not to irritate Russia and that during the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia there was a paradox that only the Finnish Communist Party issued a Country Email List condemnation. When was that status quo broken ?
