One of the most interesting political incidents in Finland for this moment is the case of Ilja Janitskin.
Ilja Janitskin is a Finnish politician and the editor-in-chief of one of the most popular and important Finnish media, MV-lehti. MV-lehti was founded in 2014 as an alternative media against the mainstream media, establishment, and liberals. Very soon, MV-lehti became one of the most popular and definitely the most important media in Finland.
The United Kingdom held a referendum on leaving the European Union. So far, the UK has not officially informed the European Union of the results of the referendum, so the exit process has not begun in practice.
We consider the meeting between the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Finland, Timo Soini, and Minister of Foreign Affairs of Sweden, Margot Wallström, to be a telling example of the "conflict" between Russia and Finland as well as Sweden.
At the moment, Finland is a neutral country and is not planning to become a member of NATO. Up to 80% of Finns do not support Finland’s membership in NATO. So it is clear that Finland will be neutral in the future along with Sweden.
I think that president Putin’s visit to Finland aimed at strengthening Russian-Finland relations. In this aspect, the visit was very important and successful. Also, Vladimir Putin wanted to visit Finland before the upcoming Warsaw summit.
Finland is in a desperate situation. Even if the EU sanctions are cancelled, the US sanctions against Russia, mainly to her financial sector, will remain. Finland and Russia cannot start any serious business as the financing is not available. Finland is under the thumb of Washington, and is left without a say. Sovereignty has been lost.
