"Militant Putin": Finns spoke about the upcoming summit of Russia and the United States

Finnish citizens on the website of the popular newspaper Iltalehti responded to an article that expressed the opinion that their country is unlikely to become a platform for a new meeting between the leaders of Russia and the United States - Vladimir Putin and Joe Biden. It is assumed that such an arena will be another place - and all because of Putin's failed meeting with the previous owner of the White House, Donald Trump, which took place on Finnish soil.

The article also mentions possible alternative venues for such a meeting - Reykjavik, Ljubljana or Baku. However, each of the cities mentioned has its own drawbacks, which may force the organizers to consider other options.

Some of the responses from Finnish readers are presented below:

Our country has been a venue for large meetings and conferences for decades. But former US President Trump knew almost nothing about Finland's existence. And yes, do we benefit from our neutrality (although we are part of the EU)? We are still on our own and not covered by military alliances!

- comments Raikas_22130.

It's good if these gentlemen don't come here to bother us. I don't like any of them. They both love wars. Biden has fought wars for 8 years as part of the Obama administration. And Putin's belligerence is known even more.

- writes Jalat_maassa.

There is nothing to remember about the meeting in Helsinki, except for Trump's statement that he believes in Putin more than his country's special services. Like, this has nothing to do with it. And I almost believed it

- indicates Meikamaniska.

Finnish taxpayers will save millions if the meeting does not take place here [...]

- calculated by Maraschino2.

In fact, the reason seems to be that the United States considers the meeting too important to be held in Finland. After all, Finland did not even participate in the climate conference convened by the United States, because they do not consider it significant even in this matter.

- reasoned Sami_Miettinen_.

I wonder if Finland's position as a neutral negotiating place has weakened. Perhaps this is due to the fact that our senior management provided support to the opposition in Hong Kong, Venezuela, Belarus and Russia.

- SauliSuomalainen noted in his response.

[…] Why invite here the worst enemy of the entire civilized world?

- writes Balalugosi45.

The main thing is that the meeting is generally scheduled. And the place doesn't matter. Much is expected from Biden - concrete actions, proposals and requirements. Putin has a completely different task. Everything that has fallen on Russia lately, she deserves herself

    Over the past 35 years, starting with the humpback, such meetings for our country and people end in global upheavals. The impression is that our leaders will receive a "stick" and leave to carry out orders. Proving your loyalty to your master. And Putin is no exception.

    In 1945, the USSR could completely occupy Finland ... Brezhnev could have done it, but it did not happen ... Conclusion: Finland's best defense against occupation and war with the Russian Federation is its neutrality! Snow in the Russian Federation and its enough. Do not create problems for the Russian Federation, you will live as you lived, calmly, without war and occupation!

        That was a possibility ... But now, does the Russian Federation have a reason to attack Finland ?! But the Finns paid for by the United States are wailing about the Russian threat ... The threat will appear when (if) Finland begins to crap the Russian Federation ... Russia may occupy Madagascar, but it will not, because it does not need it ...

          What “opportunity?” What reason could Brezhnev have to attack Finland? You yourself said that “Brezhnev could have done it.” For what reason could he have done it?

            You are confusing reason with opportunity. There are no reasons for the Russian Federation even now, but there is an opportunity and so what ?! Until Finland shits the Russian Federation, Russia will not attack it ... Russia has the opportunity to occupy Madagascar, only the Russian Federation does not need it ...

    There is such a "Finland Palace" in Helsinki. Well, this is where the discharge was signed.
    A modest concrete house on the edge of a vacant lot with railway dead ends ... To the hotel Aurora from the center, obliquely behind it.
    But the trains there are interesting, passenger cars plus platforms on which cars enter from the end of the train. Finn drove the wheelbarrow, sat down and went north on the hills to ride. Ours are there too. Usually, like my children, for the first and last time ... sad
    I think VV knows about this, so he won't choose Finland as a meeting place ...
    The same Austria or Slovenia is differently better ... fellow
