Nah, we're all pawns of the US MIC right here in your other country.
Seen the point made elsewhere that Finland and Sweden can make all sorts of promises in order to get approved - how they play out in practice is another thing entire. Look at Turkey, Greece, and Cyprus. There's some good alliance stuff right there.
As far as the hardware goes, I've also read a fair bit about how Swedish jets like Gripen make much more sense for Ukraine than, say, the F-35 or A-10. Lots of Scandinavian hardware getting field tested right now. The US doesn't have enough gear stockpiled for our own conflicts, we're clearing out old stock with our donations, and the ammunition logistics in Donbas are driving home the dire, dire state of our own. The western militaries have been buying ammo as-you-go, just-in-time style, picking up small amounts of the latest and greatest - while Russia sits on massive stockpiles of Cold War milsurp and has been loading up for the zombie apocalypse. Leaves lots of sudden demand with low supply - Sweden and Finland have their own MICs to feed, and export partners to fatten the larder.
I miss the old days of neutrality too, but it wasn't exactly the moral high ground of the last world war.
