Almost 60% of Finns Oppose NATO Membership: Gallup Poll

NATO members
Fifty-nine percent of Finland’s population do not want their country to become a NATO member, a new Gallup poll has revealed. And even if Sweden agreed to join NATO, which is seen as a factor which could sway public opinion in Finland, 52 percent would be still opposed.

In the poll, carried out on behalf of Helsingin Sanomat, the biggest daily newspaper in Finland, just 22 percent said that they’d like Finland to join the US-led military bloc, while 19 percent were undecided on the issue, RT reported.

Those surveyed were also asked if they would back NATO entry if neighboring Sweden was a member. In such a scenario, the support for NATO membership increased to 33 percent, but those opposed were still a majority, at 52 percent.
