Finnish authorities have said that if the country's application to join the Alliance is ratified, it will allow NATO to deploy nuclear weapons on the border with Russia.

On Sunday, October 30, Newsweek writes with reference to the Finnish press.
 
"In a press conversation, defense sector sources said Finnish Foreign and Defense Ministers Pekka Haavisto and Antti Kaikkonen made 'commitments' to NATO back in July that they would not seek 'restrictions or national reservations' if Helsinki's bid was accepted," the statement says.
 
The publication notes that this wording indicates that NATO nuclear weapons will be able to pass through the territory of Finland or even be based on it..

At the same time, there has been no official confirmation of the possibility of deploying nuclear weapons on the borders of Finland with the Russian Federation.

Both Finland and Sweden are known to have applied to join NATO in May in response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
