NATO describes Russia as direct threat to security and stability

NATO has agreed on a new strategic concept that describes Russia as “the most significant and direct threat to allies’ security and stability”.

On Wednesday the alliance also formally invited Finland and Sweden to be members, a day after a historic deal in which Turkey dropped its objections to the two nations joining.

The memberships show Russian President Vladimir Putin that his efforts to weaken NATO are failing and have actually instead further inspired the two neutral countries to join the alliance.

“As NATO allies, Finland and Sweden commit to fully support Turkey against threats to its national security,” secretary general Jens Stoltenberg said.

Meanwhile, more American soldiers will be sent to Europe in a show of force against the Kremlin.
