After Finland joins NATO, the country does not intend to deploy nuclear weapons on its territory.. This was stated by Finnish President Sauli Niiniste at the opening of National Defense Courses (MPK), Yle reports.

According to him, nuclear weapons are an integral part of NATO's deterrence forces, but they are a preventive tool, not an end in themselves.

Sauli Niiniste noted that a nuclear war cannot be won and should never be waged.

The President of Finland also assessed the war of the Russian Federation against Ukraine, saying that Ukraine has every right to defend its integrity and legal borders, and the Russian army has no right to be on Ukrainian soil.
 
"Finland will help Ukraine for as long as it takes," Niiniste said.
