The document was not published, but according to press sources, the government presented the advisor with a proposal to “close the entire eastern border.” Earlier last week, since asylum seekers began arriving more frequently, four main crossings in Karelia were closed, which in effect meant a complete closure of the southern part of the more than 1,340 km long border with Russia to traffic. The Northern Passes and smaller Lapland Passes were left open.
The transfer of migrants across the border is only “the first face of the Finnish hybrid operation,” the largest Finnish daily newspaper Helsing Sanomat wrote in its main editorial commentary. By attacking asylum seekers – the newspaper says – “Russia is trying to turn against them the human rights values and rules of the rule of law that Finns hold dear, and thus force Finland to abandon them.”
Migrants, including women and children, arrive at the Finnish border, which remains open in the north, every day in the middle of a harsh winter, at around -20 degrees, some of them “wearing summer sneakers and exposed ankles,” border guard officers from the units. In Kohmo Vartius, where barricades and barricades are currently being erected with the help of the army.

“Russia does not fully accept the fact that Finnish Russians will isolate themselves from the rest of society or that others will treat them with suspicion. Any actions on the part of Finland that could be interpreted as directed against the Russian population will be used,” the Helsinki newspaper said. He concluded, pointing out that “this is the last moment for the authorities to fill the loopholes through which Russia is trying to influence.”
