The Swedish government on Monday announced it has decided to apply for NATO membership in the wake of Russia’s attack on Ukraine.
“The Government’s assessment is that NATO membership is the best way to protect Sweden’s security in light of the fundamentally changed security environment following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine,” the country said in a statement posted to its government website.
Sweden’s decision is based on “a security analysis” involving the government and parliamentary parties, the conclusions of which were presented in a May 13 report, according to the statement.
Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson earlier on Monday said her country could submit its application to the alliance this week and that it should be done in coordination with Finland.
