“For fear of the Russians”: Finns justified for concentration camps in Karelia


The creation by the Finns of concentration camps for the Soviet population in Karelia during the Second World War was justified. So says the evening newspaper from Finland Ilta-Sanomat.


The publication states that "the goal of creating camps for internees was not to kill people." It turns out that "the camps were created out of fear that the Russian population might start partisan activities and sabotage."

It is clarified that the actions of the Finns were “still very different” from the German. It is recognized that "out of 83 thousand inhabitants of East Karelia, less than half, that is 41 thousand people, had Finnish roots" and they were treated better than others living in the same territory.

They want to make of the Finns fascists who fought on the side of Germany, and for this we need evidence, that is, the history is rewritten again

- said the military historian Antti Line, who apparently forgot that Finland was an ally of the Third Reich.

Although the Finns divided the population of East Karelia on a national basis, it still cannot be compared with the massacres of the civilian population by the Nazis.

- added Lyne.

Thus, the Finnish anti-Soviet Russophobes tried once again to rewrite history, and at the same time whitewash the activities of the Finnish occupation authorities. Indeed, from their reasoning, a simple conclusion suggests itself, since the Finns did not manage to establish the production of soap and lampshades as “economic” Germans, then there was no genocide either.

We remind you that recently the Finnish edition of Yle informed the public that the Russian authorities began to investigate the crimes of the Finnish military in the territory of Karelia. Then, in the period from 1941 to 1944, as a result of genocide, thousands of peaceful Soviet people were killed by the Finns. Now the surviving prisoners of concentration camps demand an assessment of the executioners.

On the territory controlled by the Finns, 14 concentration camps were created, with 6 in Petrozavodsk. During the years of occupation, 50 thousand people passed through these concentration camps. 90% of the prisoners were from the “non-national” population, being Russians, Belarusians and Ukrainians.

    Worse than Russians over Russians, no one ever scoffed or scoffed. My father's godfather and cousin of my grandfather was a participant in the Finnish war. And believe me. I heard a lot myself. yes NOKIA laughing drinks We are not enemies at all.

      no one forgave them

      The installation of a memorial plaque to Karl Mannerheim in St. Petersburg was not a mistake, the protests are related to a lack of knowledge of the history, said the Special Representative of the President of the Russian Federation for Environmental Protection, Ecology and Transport Sergey Ivanov. As the head of the Kremlin’s administration, in June of this year, he participated in the opening of the memorial plaque.

      And further:

      "A very narrow, marginal part of the population, represented by such an unregistered party as The Other Russia, protested against the establishment of a memorial sign to Mannerheim ..." the main falsification is that the board was installed by the Finnish Marshal Mannerheim. "
      "It's a complete lie! This is a monument to the Russian Lieutenant General Mannerheim," the presidential envoy explained.

      No, our current rulers are not able to admit mistakes. From the word at all - for almost 4 years after this publication, little has changed in this regard.

        After they raised the retirement age in the Russian Federation and a number of other, to put it mildly, not smart reforms, I have no doubt that these people are either illiterate or sick and the best they can do is resign! I don’t expect anything good from admirers of the Yeltsin cult, and I don’t think they are Russian patriots! As for me, Gorbachev is a criminal who misses the chopping block and inviting him to holidays in the Russian Federation - this is the US six! Putting monuments to Yeltsin in Russia is the USA’s six! Moreover, the US six against the Russian Federation!

          Have you heard about the "zeroing" under the "screen" of package social amendments?
          These amendments could be adopted by ordinary federal law, as was done with increasing retirement age. The desire to "zero" indicates that they are healthy, and the screening indicates that they are literate. I see the reasons for the "reforms" here:

                Ah, well, zeroing is not the worst. What infuriates me most is the point in which the transfer of Russian territories to foreign states is allowed, under the pretext of clarifying the border. Under this pretext, they can also give Crimea and Voronezh, just as they had already given the territory of the Russian Federation to China and Norway. I won’t go for such a vote! Now, if they wrote that the transfer of the territories of the Russian Federation to foreign states is strictly prohibited, under any pretext, that would be the case, and so, this item is a mine laid under the territorial integrity of the Russian Federation !!!
