The Russian already have sore feelings over Ukraine NOW such a suggestion by the Finn only going to exacerbate tensions!
"Finnish reasons for joining NATO 'stronger than ever': defense minister"
"Finland should seriously consider joining NATO because of Russia's aggressive actions in Ukraine and could hold a referendum on the issue some time after its 2015 election, its defense minister told Reuters."
"Opinion polls show only one fifth of Finns favor joining the Atlantic alliance but Carl Haglund said he expected that to change if Finland, which shares a 1,300 kilometer border with Russia, had an honest and open debate about NATO membership."
Mark this and mark this well! An enraged Kremlin is not going to react well to the Finn approaching NATO.
