Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned of “problems” with neighbouring Finland after it joined NATO earlier this year.

In an interview published Sunday, he said Moscow would create a new military district in north-west Russia in response.

“They (the West) dragged Finland into NATO. Did we have any disputes with them? All disputes, including territorial ones in the mid-20th century, have long been solved,” Putin told a state TV reporter.

“There were no problems there, now there will be, because we will create the Leningrad military district and concentrate a certain amount of military units there.”
