Editorial: Focus on defence


HBL writes in an editorial that EU security and defence policy has entered a new phase and become a top priority. Both Russia’s actions in the EU’s neighbourhood and diverse hybrid threats have placed new demands on the EU. EU defence policy no longer focuses on crises outside Europe but on internal cooperation, too. Because of the relatively high resistance to NATO membership, EU cooperation is good for Finland. The greater the uncertainty in our environment, the more we must invest in our own security. Stable relations reduce the risk of surprising risks.
