Finland biedt onderdak aan nieuwe NAVO-gevechtsgroep

June 17, 2024 - Finland is on track to become the ninth country to host a NATO multinational battle group after ministers supported the move in Brussels on Friday.

The decision includes setting up a command unit for land forces, according to a statement by the Finnish government.

Finland’s Minister of Defence Antti Hakkanen said the Finnish NATO command will have as a task to direct land warfare operations in northern Europe and in Scandinavia.

He declined to reveal the exact location of the command or how many NATO troops would be placed in Finland, saying detailed planning was still ongoing, according to Reuters.
