Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin, center, attends a parliamentary vote on the NATO membership, at the Finnish parliament in Helsinki, Tuesday, May 17, 2022. Sweden on Tuesday signed a formal request to join NATO, a day after the country announced it would seek membership in the 30-member military alliance. In neighboring Finland, lawmakers are expected later in the day to formally endorse Finnish leaders' decision also to join.
