Sweden And Finland - The New NATO Members?

Sweden And Finland – The New NATO Members?

Paul Siebert
May 31, 2022

But we can’t be sure whether Sweden and Finland will actually be accepted into NATO since Turkey has already announced that it plans on vetoing the accession of the two Nordic countries. What exactly NATO is, why the Swedes and Finns have recently changed their views on it, and why Erdogan does not want them to join will all be discussed in this article.

But how could it come to this and how is the Rajapaksa family related to it?

Today, two thirds of all original tropical rainforest cover around the world is either gone or severely damaged. That has led to many scientists exclaiming that it is too late for us, that we have gone too far. But why even are rainforests so important for the planet and the species living on it, including us? And is it really too late for us to change and save the rainforests?
