Russia guarantees response to Swedish NATO accession

The response from Russia is not going to be primarily based on feelings, he says:

– It will rely on which NATO infrastructure is deployed there.

If NATO talks about transferring nuclear weapons nearer to Russia, Moscow will give an “appropriate answer”. But it is simply too early to speak about putting Russian nuclear weapons across the Baltics, says Grushko.

However, there are already speculations that there are non-strategic nuclear warheads within the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad, which borders Lithuania.

Grushko additionally says that Russia “does not underestimate the threat of a militarized Arctic, which is turning into a military conflict zone”.

At the identical time, he says that Russia has no hostile intentions in direction of Finland and Sweden.
