Now Sweden calls Putin's bluff and announces NATO bid in 'historic' show of defiance

Swedish Foreign Affairs Minister, Ann Linde said: “Today the Swedish Social Democratic Party took a historic decision to say yes to apply for a membership in the NATO defence alliance.

“The Russian invasion of Ukraine has deteriorated the security situation for Sweden and Europe as a whole.”

In a statement, the Social Democrats – Sweden’s ruling party – said: “The party board has at its meeting on May 15, 2022 decided that the party will work toward Sweden applying for membership in NATO.”

This comes just hours after Finland announced it will apply to become part of the alliance.

Responding to Finland’s decision to attempt to join NATO, Putin said the country is making a “mistake”.
