Аннотация: The article analyzes the Memorandum of Understanding signed on September 4, 2014 in Wales at the North Atlantic Alliance summit by the Finnish Defense Forces commander J. Lindberg and the Supreme Allied Commander of the Joint Armed Forces in Europe, General Ph. Breedlove, under which Finland (and Sweden) joined the alliance program Host Nation Support. The Memorandum became the most significant milestone of Finland's rapprochement with NATO from 1992 to 2017, it was signed and entered into force with violation of the provisions of the Constitution of Finland in an extraordinary manner. The content of the Memorandum allows NATO, in practice, the US, in the event of a serious international crisis, to use the territory of Finland and the entire eastern Baltic in the period preceding the war as a base for conducting military operations against the North-West Federal District of Russia, at the directions of Murmansk, Karelia and St. Petersburg.
