Finland can send military troops near the edge of the Baltic to participate in NATO – ZMI contingents< /p>

As it conveys “Evropejska Pravda”, the Iltalehti newspaper raised the issue on Monday about the appeals to the dzherel in the foreign political and defense departments.

It is being argued that the Finnish forces have strengthened their advanced presence (EFP), located in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Last week, the foreign forces of Sweden publicly announced about a similar world.

For the sake of Iltalehti, the Baltic lands do not want to, so that Finland would have grown EFP in their lands, and would rather have supported them on its own – just like Sweden.

The battalions of the advanced NATO presence were fired up in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland in 2017. In Latvia, the forces of the Alliance are very much Canada, in Lithuania – Nimechchina, in Estonia – Great Britain, and in Poland – the USA.

The need for the larger NATO contingent in the Baltics has become worse after Russia's large-scale invasion of Ukraine in the fierce. Based on the decisions of the Madrid Summit, the EFP will be expanded to the level of the brigade – and demand more soldiers.
