03.12.2022, Moscow.

Finland’s and Sweden’s accession to NATO will require Russia to build up its military forces in the North. This is stated in the December 2 issue of the magazine Voennaya Mysl, published by the Russian Defense Ministry.

The publication points to the threats to the defense industrial complex facilities in the Arkhangelsk region posed by the possible deployment of missile systems in Finland.

“On our part, it would require building up the ground and coastal forces, the missile troops and artillery, the air defense forces and the aviation, including the unmanned aircraft in the northern direction”, the article reads.

It is noted that it is also necessary to plan high-precision weapon strikes against objects located in Sweden and Finland.
