The United Kingdom has signed an agreement on mutual security guarantees with Sweden. A similar document will be signed before the end of the day with the leadership of Finland.
This was reported in the office of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
It should be noted that in this way the United Kingdom ensures the security of the two Scandinavian states from Russian encroachments until they join NATO. Recently, US President Joseph Biden announced his readiness to guarantee the security of Sweden and Finland, but Johnson ended up slightly ahead of him here.
Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin said that the decision on the country’s entry into NATO will be made within a week.
