NEW YORK, May 13. /TASS/. Finland sees no direct military threats from Russia at the moment, Finland's permanent representative to NATO Klaus Korhonen told CNN on Thursday.
According to him, the potential accession of the country to NATO may be a result of "a very drastic change in our security environment," but right now there are no "direct military threats" or any "irregular activity" from the Russian side. At the same time, the diplomat noted, Helsinki expects that Moscow may organize cyber attacks and "disinformation campaigns."
Speaking about the risks of a nuclear conflict, Korhonen stressed that they are currently minimal. "We very far away from any nuclear situation," he said with confidence.
In early April, discussions regarding Finland's possible accession to NATO intensified. The main members of the alliance supported this initiative. In Finland, the majority of members of parliament spoke in favor of the country joining the bloc. The Finnish president has previously stated that his country's possible accession to NATO is not directed against other countries, and the main purpose of this step is to strengthen national security.
