International scandal: Finland refused to defend the Baltic states from Russia

The Baltic states “reach the boiling point” and, one after the other, express their dissatisfaction with Finland. And all due to the fact that the northern neighbor refuses to finance dubious initiatives aimed at containing the "fictitious" Russian threat.


So, on the eve of the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Estonia, Mart Helme, in a rather peculiar form, commented on the appointment of Sanna Marin, who became the Prime Minister of Finland and concurrently the youngest Prime Minister in the world. Helme called her a saleswoman who got out at the premiere.

At the same time, the new Finnish prime minister did work in trade before. However, the reason for such boorish behavior was not at all "политическая youth ”Marin.

The thing is that earlier the same Mart Helme had disgraced that in the event of a clash between Estonia and Russia, Finland would come to the defense of Estonians. In response, the Finns said that this was only a figment of the imagination of the Estonian minister.

However, this is not all. Even before Helme's performance, Finland unexpectedly for Estonia froze its participation in the Rail Baltica project. We are talking about the railway, which was supposed to connect Berlin and Helsinki through Poland and the Baltic states, turning into one of the important routes for delivering NATO troops to the Russian border.

The Balts have been "nurturing" this idea over the past 15 years, methodically "begging" for financial tranches from the European Union. However, the money “disappeared” somewhere, and things are still there. The Finns were tired of this “unfinished building”, and they bluntly stated that it would be better to spend money on the development of their own domestic infrastructure projects.

At the same time, not only Estonia became a “victim” of the northern neighbor. Got "nuts" and Lithuania. Earlier, the European Union began to gradually withdraw the Baltic republics from allowance, in connection with which it was planned to reduce Lithuania's subsidies by 24%. The Lithuanian leadership, in turn, said that such measures would jeopardize the entire union, since the country would no longer be able to effectively restrain Russian aggression.

However, Finland, becoming the chairman of the Council of the European Union, listened carefully to its neighbor and ... proposed reducing subsidies immediately by 27%. In response to such “Finnish injustice”, the President of Lithuania stated that this was a direct blow to the national interests of his country.

Be that as it may, it becomes obvious that even the EU itself is already weakly believed in the role of the “last redoubt” on the path of Russian aggression. Therefore, now the Baltic states have to prove themselves in something new. For example, finally begin to earn their own labor and try to compete on equal terms with the same Finland.

      Finns are wise people. And the author of the article is a fan of cheap sensations! And Suomi is not listed as lackeys by the United States to "protect" the Baltic states!

        Finnish wisdom was enough for THREE wars with the USSR. Great Finland was conceived, but it didn’t work, that's why they are smart.

      In fact, in fairness, the author repeats the words from the video attached to the article ....
      If you want to refute the scandal between Finland and Estonia regarding the failure to ensure Estonia’s security at the expense of Finland - write your article or post another video ....

      With what ... should Finland protect the Baltic States from someone? Is she a member of NATO? !!!

      That is, in order to conclude a bilateral defensive alliance between the two countries, do they need to be members of NATO?
      Finland until the middle of the last century managed to fight 4 times with Soviet Russia and the USSR, while gaining in the teeth and losing some parts of its lands, therefore, following the results of the Second World War, Finland decided to take an example from its neighbor Sweden and become neutral .... not experiencing more fate with his eastern neighbor ...
      Why the hell is Finland changing anything now? Conduct military exercises with NATO countries, procure B and BTs from the imperialists, and others. To provide their territory under the NATO WB and increase their military budget in connection with NATO membership ....

        - what, there is a bilateral agreement on mutual protection between Finland and some Baltic country? Well, about the attached video, the author also needs to be at least a little critical of all sorts of similar "videos". What is sometimes just nonsense, it happens, not removed.

          That is, in order to conclude a bilateral defense alliance between the two countries, they need to be members of NATO? "- what is a bilateral agreement on mutual protection between Finland and some Baltic country?

          And what did I say about its existence, or you don’t know how to read? .... it seems that everything was clearly written for the sane ... between, for example, the USA and Japan, and the Republic of Kazakhstan there are such agreements, but both of them are not part of NATO .. ., as well as not included in the Collective Security Treaty Organization of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, to which the Russian Federation guaranteed military protection ...
          In some regions of the world, it is more profitable to create closed-type military-political alliances (NATO, CSTO, ANZUS), in some it is more profitable to conclude bilateral defense treaties (especially since the Republic of Kazakhstan is not a fanatic of Japan, for example) ...
          Need will make Suomi sign a bilateral agreement on mutual assistance with Estonia or join NATO, since there is neither one nor the other, it means it’s not profitable for the Finns now .... but it doesn’t mean that it will always be so ...
