    Putin warns of problems with neighboring Finland after West ‘dragged it into NATO’ – By Yulia Kesaieva, Darya Tarasova, Benjamin Brown and Amarachi Orie (CNN) / Dec 17, 2023

    Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned there will be “problems” with neighboring Finland after it joined the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) earlier this year.

    Finland’s ascension to NATO marked a major shift in the security landscape in northern Europe, and added some 1,300 kilometers (830 miles) to the alliance’s frontier with Russia.

    It was also a blow for President Putin, who has long warned against NATO expansion.

    “They (the West) took Finland and dragged it into NATO! Why, did we have any disputes with Finland? All disputes, including those of a territorial nature in the middle of the 20th Century, have all been resolved long ago,” Putin said in an interview published on Sunday.
