Kremlin Now Threatening ANOTHER European Nation After…

There’s really no telling where this Russian invasion of Ukraine is headed, and that may be the most subtly terrifying part of it all.

Vladimir Putin doesn’t appear to be long for this world.  Not only are rumors swirling about his imminent demise due to terminal bowel cancer, but his behavior during the invasion of Ukraine doesn’t exactly give us the impression that he’s planning on surviving the coming comeuppance – either personally or politically.

Now, in a rather ugly escalation, the Kremlin is threatening Finland over their decision to join NATO – a decision that was made in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

The Kremlin on Thursday said Finland’s push to join NATO is a direct threat to Russia as well as the stability of the European continent and vowed to respond accordingly.

“Finland’s entry into NATO will become a threat to Russia,” Dmitry Peskov, press secretary to Russian President Vladimir Putin, told Russian media outlets.”The next expansion of NATO does not make our continent more stable and secure.”

“Of course, all this will become elements for a special analysis and development of the necessary measures in order to balance the situation and ensure our security,” he added.

And while these threats may appear to be somewhat vague, there are important tidbits to be decoded.

Namely, the idea that this is a “threat to Russia” is troubling, given that Moscow’s military doctrine allows for preemptive nuclear strikes should the Kremlin decide that there are “threats” to the Russia’s existence.
