"Russia needs to be expelled from SWIFT": Finns proposed measures against Moscow

The Finnish portal Verkkouutiset.fi reprinted the opinion of the famous American expert on Russia David J. Kramer, previously published on the Foreign Policy website, that Joe Biden will be much more harsh against the Russian Federation than his predecessor.

Russia, led by Vladimir Putin, poses a real threat to the United States and other Western countries, Russia's neighbors and its own citizens

- quotes the Finnish edition of the expert's words.

Kramer notes that "as long as Putin remains in power, it is useless to waste the precious time of American diplomats and the president trying to improve relations between the US and Russia."

Some of the Finnish comments under this publication in the order in which they were left.

Russia's attitude to NATO expansion is the main reason for the latter's expansion

- believes Henrik Lindblom.

"[…] On the contrary, sanctions should be tightened to send a message that Russia needs to change its behavior." This is exactly the case. Russia needs to be expelled from SWIFT

- Juhani Putkinen is not shy about Russophobia.

Perhaps expulsion from SWIFT was retained as a threat to prevent further Russian attacks. Or as a punishment for those. This is my guess. Unless, of course, Russia plans to act in this direction as well.

- said Antti Hautala.

Why will Ukraine take and return Crimea? Because there really is a Russian army

- ironically noted Ruoho Esa.

The Russian army also failed to win the war in Donbas. After all, it is opposed by the Ukrainian army

- answers Aappo Haukia.

If the Russian army set out on a campaign in the morning, the war would have ended in the afternoon.

- explained Ruoho Esa.

The intention is for [under pressure] Russia to return to the international community. It's time for her to change, because a different path guarantees even greater collapse.

- said Timo Lindqvist.

We in Finland also want not to worry about anything. So Finland is in NATO

- writes a certain Hannu Haili.

Yes, NATO members just need a place where their wars against Russia will go, and Finland is suitable for this. Well, yes, of course, along the way, the civilian population will be destroyed, and the cities of Finland will be destroyed

- replies to the previous user Hannu Tolonen.

These are stupid words. NATO never attacks first. NATO is a defensive alliance that aims to jointly protect member states from attack. NATO will only take military action if all 30 member states agree. Even if we imagine that NATO member states really would like to attack Russia, that is, there are easier ways than through Finland.

- replied to the remark of Hannu Haili.

Well written and true. But this is not about Russians in general, but about the current rulers of Russia

- notes Tapani Viik.

Not the fact that Russian poverty will prevent them from conquering their neighbors, but rather it will become the reason for the invasion. It has always been and always will be the case that the conqueror wants to take something from his defeated neighbor, for example, natural resources, industry, etc. The Soviet Union attacked Finland in 1939, because he needed electricity for Leningrad when lacked their capacity. And also the Finnish pulp industry was needed [...]

    Well, if the Finns write this, especially those who remember 1939 in this way, then we can safely sum up the results - the information war between Russia and Europe and the United States is lost. The reason for the loss is not only that the West has more resources, but that at the beginning of this war, i.e. around 2010, in Russia this direction of international politics was not really involved and did not pay due attention to it, and in the structures that were entrusted with information countermeasures, the sons and daughters of high-ranking officials sat, or rather lay, doing nothing and "smoking bamboo". Meanwhile, the West was bringing the "truth" to the European masses. The result of their work is perfectly visible.

      Absolutely right. But even now it is not much better. At a time when hundreds of institutions are working in each area of ​​geopolitics in the United States, Russia is a nuclear desert in this regard, and the "kids" of the most politicians have a second "London" citizenship. And they hope for something else. In fact, as always, they will throw all their problems with meat, with the meat of our people, or they will stupidly fix everything in one fell swoop, as it was already.

The West bans our media, imposes sanctions, and we are building the power again, despite them and our whiners.

    Russia needs to be expelled from SWIFT

    1. Suppose they block SWIFT, and the income from their enterprises in the Russian Federation will be exported by trucks?
    2. Initially, NATO's area of ​​operations was limited to the northern tropic. Today it covers the whole world, and in this regard, the question is - do the penguins of Antarctica threaten steel or the army of aliens?
    3. Tales that NATO will never fall first are confirmed by the bombing of Yugoslavia, Libya, Syria, Afghanistan - or maybe these states were preparing for an attack and conducted military exercises near NATO borders, such as the DPRK, Iran, Russia, China near the US borders and imitate the delivery of nuclear strikes like those practiced by NATO in the Kaliningrad province and the USA from the Kharkov region and the US submarines from the Barents Sea?
    4. Sweden Finland and Norway are part of the so-called. a Scandinavian military alliance, the total mobilization strength of which is about one million people (!!!) and is actually a subsidiary of NATO, and the fact that this is a defensive alliance can be judged by the territorial claims to the Russian Federation from Norway and Finland.

Can aliens help us with loans? your entire beloved European Union is credited for the most do not spoil. maybe this is the main reason for their such democratic Euro-Atlantic solidarity on anti-Russian sanctions. twitch, it will be like with Hungary. Whose voices are you broadcasting from? Russia is a free country, I don't like the exit is always open.

    I'm sailing, so I'm on a ferry from Sweden to Zachuhon. I go on the ferry. Suddenly the cabin door opens. A drunken fin falls out of there and, it seems, begins to get pissed off. The phrase "well, you hot Finnish guy", uttered with an extended jaw, sobered him instantly. He - darted out the door.
