Russia began to gather troops to the border with Finland after Helsinki announced its intention to join NATO. On Tuesday, April 12, reports Daily Mail.
Thus, on the territory of the Russian Federation towards the border with Finland, the movement of heavy weapons, including missile systems, was noticed several hours after the Kremlin warned Helsinki against joining NATO.
