For many, many decades now, the politicians of the world have depended on the political neutrality of Sweden and Finland as most of the rest of Europe took sides during the years of the Cold War and afterward, joining NATO or remaining within the former Soviet sphere of influence.

Russia’s invasion into the heartland of Europe has created a sea change in how these traditionally neutral countries, which have long prided themselves on being apart from the fray of international alliances and the tensions that can arise from them — will face a future in which open warfare has broken out on the continent.
