Putin is now getting ‘more NATO’ because of his invasion, alliance chief says

World A- A A+

"Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has had unintended consequences for Russia’s President Vladimir Putin," NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg has said,  CNBC reports. 

“He wanted less NATO on his borders, now he’s getting more NATO,” Stoltenberg said in a special address to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

Stoltenberg’s comments come as relations between Russia and the Western military alliance NATO remain tense after Finland and Sweden announced applications to join the organization.

Although the application process takes time for all existing NATO members to approve, and Turkey’s objections have not yet been overcome, the expected expansion of NATO has irked Russia, with President Putin calling it “a problem,” although his foreign minister has tried to downplay the significance of the enlargement.
