Finland Risks ‘Annihilation’ if They Join NATO, Russian Lawmaker Warns

A Russian lawmaker who has previously boasted about his country’s missile capabilities on Kremlin-backed television has said that Finland is endangering its existence if it joins NATO.

Duma deputy Aleksey Zhuravlyov, who chairs the nationalist Rodina political party, told the news outlet Ura.ru that Finland and Russia once enjoyed good relations following World War Two but now Helsinki is “going to do something to create additional problems for us.”

“When you create problems for someone, you must understand that you will get them yourself,” he said in the article headlined, “Joining NATO threatens Finland with annihilation.”

Last month, Zhuravlyov said on the program 60 Minutes, which pushes the Kremlin line on the Russian invasion of Ukraine, that he wished missiles had hit Kyiv while U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken was visiting.
