Finland’s President Sauli Niinisto confirmed on Sunday that the Nordic country would apply for the North Treaty Atlantic Organization (NATO) membership, despite Russia’s president warning it would be a mistake to do so.

In a historic policy shift prompted by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the Nordic country is likely to submit a formal application for NATO membership on May 18 at NATO headquarters in Brussels.

President Sauli Niinisto and Prime Minister Sanna Marin made the announcement at a joint news conference at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki.

Sauli Niinisto said the move gives him security of mind and membership holds huge importance to the country. This is a historic day. A new era begins, the Finnish president said.
