Vladimir Putin has puzzled the Finnish leadership

At a joint press conference with his Finnish counterpart Sauli nieste the Russian President in a confidential manner said that, despite the fact that the Russian Federation appreciates the neutral status of Finland, she respectfully accept the decision of the Country Suomi on the possible accession to NATO.
