The Government of Finland has been working on the NATO membership bill: the Finnish newspaper ‘Iltalethi‘ reported that the accession text would contain no restrictions on the introduction of nuclear weapons on Finnish national territory or the establishment of NATO bases. The news actually came just as the US and NATO have decided to accelerate plans to have a more up-to-date version of the available nuclear bombs (B61-12) on European NATO bases initially scheduled for spring 2023. Finnish President Sauli Niinistö recently declared that Finland is unlikely to host nuclear weapons on its territory once it joins NATO.
