Finnish flag raised at NATO as Nordic nation joins alliance

Description

Finland's flag flies high for the first time at NATO headquarters, as the country officially joined the US-led defence alliance in a historic realignment of Europe's defences that drew an angry warning of "countermeasures" from the Kremlin. Russia's all-out invasion of Ukraine last year upended Europe's security landscape and prompted Finland -- and its neighbour Sweden -- to drop decades of military non-alignment. IMAGES
