Russia Cuts Electricity Supply To Finland Over It's Plans To Join NATO (Photos) by WriterNig: 5:54pm On May 13


Russia suspends electricity supplies to Finland, a supplier said on Friday as tensions rise over Helsinki's NATO bid amid Moscow's military campaign in Ukraine.

'We are forced to suspend the electricity import starting from May 14,' said RAO Nordic, a subsidiary of Russian state energy holding Inter RAO.

'RAO Nordic is not able to make payments for the imported electricity from Russia.'

The firm is not directly faced with Western sanctions over the invasion into Ukraine, Montel News reports. However the outlet adds Inter Rao Lietuva - its 51% owned Lithuanian subsidiary - is.

MailOnline has reached out to RAO Nordic for more information.

It comes as Russia yesterday accused Finland of 'pushing above its weight' as the country signalled its intention to join NATO.

Putin's EU ambassador vowed to bolster defences on the Russia and Finland's shared 800-mile-long border if it decided to join the alliance.

Vladimir Chizhov said if Finland joined it would lead to 'certain military-technical measures, like improving or raising the degree of defence preparations along the Finnish border'.



A move would 'certainly necessitate rethinking of Russian defence posture' but not 'necessarily [involve] troops and tanks, but certain preparations like radars, perhaps', he told Sky News.

Yesterday a former British ambassador to Russia has said there may be 'much more Russian nuclear deployment in the Baltic' areas in response to Finland potentially becoming a NATO member in light of the war in Ukraine.

Sir Tony Brenton told BBC's Newsnight programme the Kremlin may think 'it expands their view of NATO as a threat to them'.

He said: 'They will be very conscious especially as this war winds its way to a conclusion that their conventional forces have not produced the results they hoped for.

'They will be increasingly inclined therefore to use their nuclear strength as a demonstration they need to be taken seriously.

'I think we need to resign ourselves to the likelihood of much more Russian nuclear deployment in the Baltic area as a response to Finland's accession to NATO, when it comes, and Sweden's very likely one as well.'

This war is just revealing how big Russia is.

So imagine Finland, a European country cannot generate its own electricity which means they are on Niger Republic and Benin third world level.

Nigeria is better than a lot of countries but our inferiority complex won't let us see it.

I still don't get why Russia hasn't placed troops, nuclear weapons & ICBMs in Cuba, Nicaragua & Venezuela yet.

Or form their own alliance with all NATO adversaries.

Since NATO has refused to stop moving towards Russia's borders. Russia should start moving closer to NATO's borders.

This war has revealed how important Russia is to Europe as for Finland she should get her electricity from USA na
I suggest Russia gives eu south and north Korea treatment,

Militarize the eu

Since they don't want peace

It funny how this European we think that are smart allow Europe to be turned into a war zone

While USA is far away surrendered by friendly neighbors before you quote me on this don't forget USA and her neighbours where all at war till they found peace. USA Annexed part of Mexico, invaded Canada etc

No body is a saint here

The Finnish electricity network operator said it would be able to make do without Russian electricity.

'We're prepared for this and it won't be difficult. We can make do with a bit more imports from Sweden and Norway,' Fingrid's manager for operational planning Timo Kaukonen told AFP.

He said a little less than 10 percent of electricity consumed in Finland comes from Russia.


Ode, PouTin, Finland saw you coming, they were ready and the little 10% they get from you is replaceable with ease, you just scored your own goal again.

Blackmail and hostage-taking is like saying to your customers never to trust or rely on you.

This is the kind of threat that led Finland to NATO in the first place.

PouTin is just too dumb and overrated.

Russia really thinks it can fight a war on two fronts, while enduring further sanctions?

All this NEWS or NOISE was factored into their plan before they made the decision to join NATO....

Putin's Russia is like a man rearing chicken waiting for Christmas to arrive....

He is not feeding the chicken because he loves the chicken,

He is feeding the chicken because he has other ideas at Christmas.

The Finnish parliament have weighed the Pros and Cons of countinous romance with Putin's Russia...

They decided that it is not worth it...... Hence their decision to join NATO.

The same nation that supply you electricity, oil and gas today would wake up tomorrow and Invade your nation because of their desire to restore the old Soviet Union.

Finland had lost vast land to Russia in the Winter War and they are not ready to loose more land to Putin's Russia in the future.

Know your enemies early and let them know that you know their evil Christmas plans.

What kind of headline is this?
Russia said it will suspended electricity, gas and oil supplies to Finland due to non-payment of Finland in Rubles since May 6th, according to Finnish PM.

Finnish PM said that Finland will not pay in Ruble even as many EU countries have already open up Ruble account.

Because just one or two western country would be far richer than all alliances Russia can put together (with the exception of China and maybe India - ps: the latter countries are not even ready to form an alliance with Russia as they are scared of sanctions). Lots of money is needed to fight and sustain a warcheesy

I was also surprised with the headline.
Just like Russia informed Poland and Germany that its will cut off gas supplies through Poland pipelines because Ukraine stopped one route because Ukraine lost the territory meaning no revenue for Ukraine on that pipeline
