Once again, we find ourselves re-visiting Vladimir Putin’s threats. He has started again by threatening retaliation for Sweeden and Finland joining NATO. Seems to me he has his hands full trying to defeat Ukraine. As for NATO, his threats are taken seriously and should be. Putin is a man up against the wall and a man with nuclear missiles pointing at the United States as well as our NATO allies. His threats are mainly against Sweeden and Finland joining NATO.

Dmitry Medvedev, the deputy speaker of the Russian Security Council, said Russia will need to strengthen Russian ground, naval, and air forces in the Baltic if Sweden and Finland join NATO. Amid ongoing Russian military operations in Ukraine, the country’s foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Friday Moscow will have to react if Sweden and Finland are both added to NATO.

Russia will have to bolster its defenses in the Baltic Sea including a potential nuclear escalation — if Sweden and Finland join NATO, Moscow said on Thursday.

“There can be no more talk of any nuclear-free status for the Baltic – the balance must be restored,” Dmitry Medvedev, deputy chairman of Russia’s security council and former president of Russia, said, Reuters reported. “Until today, Russia has not taken such measures and was not going to. If our hand is forced, well … take note it was not us who proposed this,” he added, according to Reuters.    “foxnews.com

The remarks came as Sweden and Finland appear closer than ever before to join the Western alliance. On May 16, Russian leader Vladimir Putin gave a different perspective, saying that Russia was not threatened by the prospects for Swedish and Finnish membership in NATO. Putin suggested the relations between Moscow, Helsinki, and Stockholm will break down as soon as all three countries are members of NATO.

Speaking in Turkmenistan, the Russian President said: “With Sweden and Finland, we don’t have the problems that we have with Ukraine. If they want to join NATO, go ahead.

“But they must understand there was no threat before, while now if military contingents and infrastructure are deployed there, we will have to respond in kind and create the same threats for the territories from which threats towards us are created.”

Putin suggested that the relationship between Moscow, Helsinki, and Stockholm would crumble once they become NATO members. He added: “Everything was fine between us, but now there might be some tensions, there certainly will.   “express.co.uk

Vladimir Putin the man who would be king. King of what? He is feeling the sting of the sanctions that have been put on his kingdom and he is again using threats of a nuclear war. Even if he hasn’t said it aloud again it is seen in his words and actions he is threatening to enforce. If he is allowed to win the illegal invasion (war) in Ukraine, he will feel invincible and that would definitely start World War Three.

Putin said a special military operation in Ukraine was needed because the US was using Ukraine to threaten Russia, and Russia had to protect itself from the persecution of people who spoke Russian. NATOs channeling of arms and other military support to Ukraine has already been crucial for Ukraine’s unexpected success in stopping an invasion, and on Thursday, in a chilling new way, the Kremlin warned again that aid might result in a direct NATO-Kremlin conflict.

This is an older threat Vladimir Putin made about Finland and Sweeden joining NATO.

One of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s closest allies warned NATO on Thursday that if Sweden and Finland joined the U.S.-led military alliance then Russia would deploy nuclear weapons and hypersonic missiles in a European exclave.

Finland, which shares a 1,300-km (810-mile) border with Russia, and Sweden are considering joining the NATO alliance. Finland will decide in the next few weeks, Prime Minister Sanna Marin said on Wednesday.    “reuters.com

The only thing left to do now is to wait and see which way the Illegal invasion (war) that Vladimir Putin is spearheading will go. Will Putin get so agitated by not being able to defeat the Ukrainian forces because of the United States and its NATO allies providing weapons to Ukraine?

God Bless the United States, God Bless the Veterans
