RUSSIA has chillingly threatened to deploy tactical nuclear weapons on the border with Finland and Sweden "when bases appear" after their NATO bid.

Vladimir Putin warned the nations that joining the Western alliance would be a "mistake" - but they have snubbed the despot.

Moscow has now made it clear they will suffer the consequences of joining NATO, boasting they could wipe out Finland in "ten seconds".

Brainwashed state television pundits supporting Putin mockingly said the two countries have only been motivated to join by fear.

But it seems Russia may now becoming unnerved by the unwavering support shown for Ukraine since the conflict kicked off.

A commentator on Rossiya One said: "Their official reason is fear. But they'll have more fear in Nato.

"When Nato bases appear in Sweden and Finland, Russia will have no choice but to neutralise the imbalance and new threat by deploying tactical nuclear weapons."

The stern warning was expected in wake of their bloc bids, as Russia will soon be encircled by Nato territory on its western flank from the Arctic to Turkey.
