Aleksey Chepa: Finland’s economic situation will worsen after joining NATO

First Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Foreign Affairs Alexei Chepa, in an interview with RT, commented on the news that the head of the Finnish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Pekku Haavisto, handed over to US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken a document on the country’s accession to NATO. Thus, Finland officially became the 31st member of the organization.

According to the deputy, this decision will affect the relations between Russia and Finland.

“We must review the entire contractual framework between our countries: interstate, commercial,” the parliamentarian noted.

According to him, Moscow should consider Finland as a NATO member country, which considers Russia the only threat to its existence.

“The whole NATO strategy is directed against us, therefore, based on this, we must take into account our attitude,” Chepa explained.

After Finland joins NATO, the economic situation of the country will worsen due to the emergence of additional, serious obligations of the country to the alliance, he is sure.

“All this does not improve our relations, which have existed for many years,” the RT interlocutor concluded.

Earlier it became known that Finland officially became the 31st member of NATO.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said that Finland’s accession to the North Atlantic Alliance would negatively affect relations with Russia.
