Behind Push by Finland to Quickly Join NATO in Light of Russia-Ukraine War

Finland's leadership is calling for immediate membership in NATO "without delay" following the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Ari Aramesh, a national security and foreign policy analyst, joined Cheddar News to discuss Finland's change of direction after avoiding membership in the military alliance for decades. "Finland's current security needs and Finland's current security measures are all about what Putin and what Putin's Kremlin are out to achieve, and that has been been a much more aggressive, much more sort of militant Kremlin, under President Putin in the past 22 years," he said.
