Kremlin spokesperson, Dmitry Peskov, has said Russia was closely watching Sweden and Finland’s bids to join Nato, adding that he was convinced that their accession would not strengthen the security of Europe, APA reports citing BCC.

"This is a serious issue, an issue that raises our concern, and we will follow very carefully," he said.

Peskov also pointed out that in comparison with Ukraine, Russia did not have any territorial disputes with Finland or Sweden.
