Irking Russia, Finland Becomes 31st Member Of NATO

Finland became the 31st member of NATO on Tuesday — a once-unthinkable step that significantly changes the security landscape in Europe.
Finland’s membership more than doubles NATO’s borders with Russia and formally ends Helsinki’s decades of official nonalignment.
It’s also a blow to Russian President Vladimir Putin who, in launching the Russian invasion of Ukraine, vowed to block the alliance’s eastward expansion.
