This would all be resolved if Russia would join NATO.

No.  Let's see how things play out with NATO as it is.  I'm having serious doubts.

Look at the time stamps and you will see this one was posted an hour before the other one.   I can't control others from posting the same thing I did

Neither has wanted into NATO, because they've been neutral on conflicts. Finland looks to be reconsidering. They're both EU members though, which in itself Putin doesn't like.

If they come in now, should they pay past dues for the protection they enjoyed from NATO’s presence over the years while making believe they were high and mighty, and above being a member?

Just another example of Putin stepping on his own dick.   He was deathly afraid of NATO pulling in the Ukraine and used that as part of his "justification" for his "special operation".  Now it appears that his actions may very well strengthen  NATO with the addition of Finland (which shares an 800 mile border with Russia), and possibly Sweden.  Increasing participation in NATO was the last thing he wanted out of this, particularly on his own border.

 

  Along the same lines, he was counting on a quick roll across the Ukraine to demonstrate his might and to further intimidating the rest of Europe and the US.  Instead, most have been pleasantly surprised at just how inept the Russian army has proven to be.  What was once thought of as formidable foe, is now looked at as a bumbling oaf.  Once again, the opposite of what was intended.

 

And while accomplishing all of the above, he has also managed to further isolate Russia economically, as well as morally, from the rest of the world.
