US intelligence does not expect a sharp response from Russia to the entry of Finland and Sweden into NATO

The US authorities do not believe that Russia will react in a truly confrontational manner to the admission of Finland and Sweden to the North Atlantic Alliance, but Washington allows Moscow to change the alignment of forces in the long term. This was stated on June 29 by the Director of National Intelligence of the United States Avril Haynes.

“In terms of their (the Russian side) reaction, I think we expect and have already seen to some extent that they will conduct information campaigns on this issue, trying to convince the people of Sweden and Finland that this will actually weaken their security, and won’t strengthen it. We have already seen that they seem to be actively trying to put pressure on Sweden and Finland in public statements and through other actions regarding military means. But nothing really confrontational,” Haynes said, answering a question about how Moscow might react to NATO expansion.

“And we don’t think that it will lead to anything really confrontational, mostly because, frankly, they (the Russian side) are quite focused on Ukraine, and it will be quite difficult to do that. At the same time, in the long run, this may lead to the fact that in the long term they will change their position, their alignment of military forces, and other things. Let’s see how things will develop,” Haynes said.

President of Russia Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that Moscow is not concerned about the possible entry of Finland and Sweden into NATO, but will mirror the deployment of the alliance’s military infrastructure in these countries.

“As for Sweden and Finland, we do not have such problems with Sweden and Finland, which, unfortunately, we have with Ukraine. We have no territorial issues and disputes, we have nothing to worry us from the point of view of the membership of Finland and Sweden in NATO. I want them [вступить в НАТО] – please. Only they should clearly and clearly imagine that before there were no threats to them, and now, if military contingents and infrastructure are deployed there, we will have to respond in a mirror manner and create the same threats for the territories from which threats are created to us, ”said the head states, answering journalists’ questions.
