      Finland and Sweden are expected to reveal in the coming days whether they will ask to join the NATO military alliance.

      Russia’s war in Ukraine has sparked an urgent rethink in both countries.

      Coming out in favour of joining would be a historic development for either nation: Sweden has avoided military alliances for more than 200 years, while Finland adopted neutrality after being defeated by the Soviet Union in World War II.

      Along with Ukrainian resistance and Western sanctions, if either decided to join it would be one of the most significant ways in which the invasion appears to have backfired on Russian President Vladimir Putin, who cited NATO expansion as one of the reasons for attacking Ukraine.
