Support for Nato membership has grown in the Nordic nation since Ukraine was invaded.
Prime Minister Sanna Marin said possible membership would be discussed ‘within the coming weeks’.
But alarming new footage has now emerged, which seems to show a dramatic display of aggression from Russia.
Military equipment, including coastal defence systems, have been seen on the road from Russia toward Helsinki.
The Daily Mail reports the missiles form the K-300P Bastion-P mobile coastal defence system, designed to ‘take out surface ships up to and including aircraft carrier battle groups.’
Last night, Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov warned expansion of Nato would ‘not bring stability’ to Europe.
His comments followed concerning developments on Friday, when Finland’s websites were targeted in a cyber attack.
A Russian government aircraft also briefly violated the nation’s airspace the same day.
Finland, and its neighbour Sweden, have previously avoided Nato membership in a bid to not provoke Russia.
But the invasion of Ukraine sparked renewed consideration about membership.
If they were to join Nato, both countries would benefit from alliance’s defence clause, which calls for all members to defend any ally under attack.
Alexander Stubb, a former prime minister of Finland, said last week: ‘The Finns believe that if Putin can massacre his sis, siblings and cousins in Ukraine, as he is doing now, then there is absolutely nothing stopping him from doing it in Finland.
‘We simply don’ t wish to be left alone once again,’ he included, in referral to the Soviet-Finnish Winter War.
That dispute lasted from November 1939 to March 1940.
Recent viewpoint surveys in Finland have actually revealed 84% of individuals as watching Russia as a ‘significant military threat’, up by 25% on the previous year.
But, talking to Nordic reporters on Thursday, Nato secretary general Jens Stoltenberg guaranteed both Sweden and Finland ‘can easily join this alliance if they decide to apply’.
He included: ‘They have worked together for many years, we know that they meet the Nato standards when it comes to interoperability, democratic control over the armed forces.’
