Russian leader Vladimir Putin has said Moscow will reply in kind if Nato installs new military infrastructure in Finland or Sweden. “With Sweden and Finland, we don’t have the problems that we have with Ukraine. They want to join Nato, go ahead,” he said on state TV Wednesday. “If military contingents and infrastructure are deployed there, we will have to respond in kind and create the same threat,” he added.
