President Biden met with officials from Kosovo and Albania recently in an attempt to encourage more countries to take in Afghan refugees. These negotiations to house thousand of Afghanis who helped the US during the past 20 years have been secret. Four U.S. officials confirmed the meetings to Reuters.

Already, Operation Allies Refuge reported 1,200 Afghans have been resettled in the United States. But they expect a total of 3,500.

There are 400 SIV applicants whose visas are in the final stages of processing, according to Reuters. Reports have suggested that many have arrived in recent days at the start of an evacuation effort dubbed “Operation Allies Refuge.” That operation may include as many as 50,000 people or more, Reuters reported.

Then, Biden publicly met with officials from Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan over the matter. Yet no agreements have been struck. One official confirmed that the deal to house 8,000 Afghans in Qatar is nearly finished.

Two additional sources claimed countries are hesitating to take in the Afghans they’re concerned about COVID-19 health screenings. These screenings take place before refugees board the plane and the worry is the results will be inaccurate. The same concerns translate to security vettings.

Meanwhile, the embassies of Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kosovo and Albania did not respond to Reuter’s requests for comment.

Putin has said in recent years that Finland is considered friendly so long as they do not join NATO. Finland’s President Sauli Niinistö confirmed Sunday he has applied for NATO membership.

MetroUK tweeted chilling video and reported the following:

Russia has started moving nuclear-capable missiles towards its border with Finland hours after Moscow vowed not to tolerate Helsinki’s plans to join Nato.

The Kremlin issued a chilling warning that plans for both Finland and Sweden to sign up to the Atlantic alliance were a ‘grave mistake with far reaching consequences’.

Russian deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov, said: ‘They should have no illusions that we will simply put up with it,’ and insisted ‘the general level of military tension will rise’.

The video was reportedly taken on a road leading to Vyborg, around 24 miles from the Finnish border, showing the deployment of mobile Iskander missiles.

“Seven launchers are thought to be en route according to commentary on a dash cam video broadcast by Russian media.”

A person on the video can be heard saying: ‘As soon as the president of Finland said they were joining Nato, a whole division of Iskanders, seven of them is moving towards Vyborg.

‘Looks like a new military unit is about to be formed in Vyborg or the region.’
