Bloomberg: The Netherlands, led by the new government, may reduce military support for Ukraine

The leader of the election-winning Freedom Party, Geert Wilders, said that the Dutch authorities should not provide support to Kiev, while they are unable to secure the country's defense.
At the same time, two of his potential coalition partners expressed doubts about Ukraine's membership in the European Union.

The Freedom Party, led by Wilders, won 37 seats in the recently held parliamentary elections, more than double its share in the previous elections, thus outperforming its opponents.

The "surprising" victory of far-right Geert Wilders in the legislative elections resonated at home and across Europe.

Fields does not hide his plans to take decisive measures against the so-called Islamization of Europe and tighten immigration policy.



Finland opens two checkpoints on the border with Russia

The Finnish government announced at dawn today, Thursday, the opening of two border crossing points with Russia, after it decided at the end of last month to end the border cooperation agreement with Russia.
A post issued by the Finnish Ministry of the Interior on the “X” platform said: “Finland will continue to impose restrictions on the eastern borders, and the border crossing points will remain closed except for the Valima and Nirala points, which will be open for vehicle crossings on Thursday, December 14.”

On November 30, the Finnish government announced the termination of the border cooperation agreement with Russia.

The Finnish government stated that it received a memorandum from the Russian Foreign Ministry on this subject, on October 25, about Russia’s decision to terminate this treaty.

A statement issued by it said: “The State Council issues a decision to cancel the agreement between the Republic of Finland and the Government of the Russian Federation, regarding the development of border cooperation between the Republic of Finland and the Russian Federation.” The decision is scheduled to enter into force on January 24, 2024.

On October 20, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin signed a decision to terminate the agreement with Finland on enhancing border cooperation.

In addition, the Finnish authorities recently closed seven out of eight checkpoints on the border with Russia, and the decision is valid until December 23. This was explained by the uncontrolled entry of citizens of third countries across the border with Russia.
