With new military deployments to Central and Eastern Europe, membership invitations for Finland and Sweden, and a new, long-term Strategic Concept, NATO is stronger and more united than for generations. Not what Putin expected. whitehouse.gov/briefing-room…

History being made
🇸🇪#Sweden and 🇫🇮#Finland's prime ministers have just held a joint press conference outlining plans to join #NATO. 🇫🇮 expected to move first. PM Marin says she won't give a timetable but "it will happen quite fast—within weeks, not within months, we will have the discussion"
