It's funny, you know. Sure I was aware of the poll which found that Finns trust Swedes the most and vice versa, and yeah, we've 800 years of history together, and Swedes sent A LOT of equipment and volunteers to Finland during the Winter War.
Yet, when asked what they know about Finland, Swedes tend to stare into the distance, and mutter something about the cold (like Sweden's in the tropics), knives (thank the Slussen idiots for that), or that Finland's technologically, culturally, socially, and economically stuck in the 50s (thank Aki Kaurismäki's movies for that image). Finns say Swedes are pussies, naïve, tree-hugging hippies etc.

But now I know something for sure. Yes, there's the Kavli prawn cheese which I love, and Atria's lördagskorv which Swedes love... but we're a team. We stick together, and we've got each other's back.
Of all the neighbors in the world, ain't a goddamn better one than Sweden.
Or New Zealand.

Finland's little thumbs up gesture just kills me, I don't know why it's so funny.

The extreme irony being that it was Russias leadership that pushed both Sweden and Finland into joining Nato. I know that at least the swedes are pretty upset over loosing 200 years of alliance freedom and neutrality, but all the threats and intrusions into swedish airspace made it more or less impossible to stay out of it.

Basically, Putins threats about us joining made us join.

Unpopular opinion: NATO should have been deleted in 1992 because the fall of communist tyranny ended its reason to exist. As far as I'm concerned the role of helping integrate the Eastern bloc into the democratic realm should have been spearheaded by the Western Europeans, not the US...

That being said, how the hell did you not see this coming Putin -- ofc the Finns and Swedes were gonna see you go into Ukraine and say "yeah we'll go ahead and join an alliance to protect ourselves against *that*"

I think most people are well aware that something like a 'liberal Russia' exists, unfortunately it doesn't exist in Russia :-)

Russia will win, and the West will lose, and Ukraine is nothing more than a battlefield for these two.
Finland greatly disappointed me with its decision to join NATO. There was nothing like this during the Cold War and Finland enjoyed neutrality, taking advantage of both sides. And now, because of mass Russophobic hysterical stupidity and cowardice, they went for it. Sweden's actions are even more impressive in their absurdity. Who's next? Norway? Let them first share with the extra income from the sale of oil with Poland, otherwise the poor Poles are very offended that they are not given money for nothing. You can also wish Finland and Sweden to get ready for the upcoming space prices for energy and resources. By the way, will the governments of these countries compensate the losses to those Finnish and Swedish companies that were forced to leave Russia?
