"All because of threats from Russia": the Finns on the purchase of the F-35


The Finnish public is actively discussing news on the purchase by the national air force of 64 American fifth-generation F-35 fighters. Opinions were divided between enthusiasm for a new car to bewilderment at the cost of purchasing a new item. According to press reports, the contract was valued at $ XNUMX billion.


Here are some comments from the website of the country's largest evening newspaper, Ilta-Sanomat.

Finnish feedback:

The National Interest reports that Russia has become a global leader in air / missile defense systems. The S-500 Prometheus complex allows Russia to outstrip the rest of the world by at least 20 years. In addition, the American publication believes that the S-500 has every chance of derailing the F-35 fighter program.

- a manes commented on the news.

After all, this is the money of the Finnish government. Swedish planes would cost more

- comments Urpox.

The Finnish Defense Forces made a decision. Let's thank them. Fortunately, policy they did not go in here with their politicking. Professionals (military personnel) themselves know what is needed there. This is the best technique from the point of view of all used industrial and information technologies. And NATO has nothing to do with it, because there is already a political issue. If anyone is wary of Putin's reaction, let me remind you that while the children of his billionaire friends are attending school here nearby, nothing remarkable should be expected. And Finland has been part of the West for decades

- writes Stadista.

States that develop their own weapons alone (for example, both of our neighbors) will not achieve the success that is possible in interstate projects. The aircraft is absolutely superior to the planes of other countries. The F-35 is in constant development, information from Finland, Israel, Norway and Japan will go to the Yankees, where it will be analyzed, and updates will immediately go to all countries where the car is located.

- expressed firm confidence Olimme keskituloisia.

Without the threat from Russia, these fighters would not be needed. Without them, poverty in Finland would be reduced and health care would be available to everyone. The tax on cars could be abolished, on fuel - halved, on electricity - also abolished, VAT on foodstuffs reduced ... The list goes on and on

- answered the reader with the nickname Rampe.

Sukhoi cannot see this plane on its radar. We have superiority over the armada from the East

- Magge was delighted.

        Central Asian people do not write "lard heroes" during repairs ... and the commander turned out better from Tamerlane than from the same Khmelnytsky.

          It would be better if they wrote about fat ... Than they cut and raped. Now, by the way, the authorities are discussing the topic of prohibiting the mention of the nationalities of the offenders, their legal status, names, surnames in news reports.

              It is too late to drink Borjomer. Ukraine was missed, especially Ukrainian youth of draft age. NATO received, for a penny, hundreds of thousands of native cheap infantry ready to rush on machine guns and Iskander with Petrevesniki. There is no need to take her to the borders of Russia, everything is in place, there is not even a language barrier This is the biggest success of the State Department, and its mongrels, since 1945.
              Against this background, the Khmeimim landing force of 2015 looks comical.

                lop-eared and machine guns?))) when was this? in all the wars against Russia they were engaged in the mopping up of the civilian population. "It never happened, and here it is again."

                  Because there was no one to protect this civilian population.

                    because some have a penchant for fighting this population. and are not good for anything else. for this, the Turks executed the son of Khmelnytsky. slaughtered new subjects of the Ottoman Empire. Germans and Poles simply turned a blind eye to these features.

                        Is it not these civilians that the FSB is catching in Russia for preparing for terrorist attacks? from one ruin they all came out. division along the channel of the Dnieper by spheres of influence, and not by nationality.

    Stupid .. I remember in 68, because of the events in Czechoslovakia, when the world was really on the verge of war, Soviet Prime Minister Kosygin arrived in Finland and notified the Finns that in the event of war the USSR would be forced to occupy part of Finland. I don’t know if he met understanding, but the fact that the Finns did not vyaknul anything against says a lot. And then, Iskander will reach any airfield where they will be based. And the calibers, all the more so.

      This was reflected in the 1948 Treaty of Friendship and Cooperation between the USSR and Finland. In the event of a war with the FRG, the SA could take a foothold in Finland, and the Finnish authorities had to side with the USSR.

      there would be no war with the nuclear USSR and there will be no nuclear RF, the West is a cowardly herd, they perfectly know the limits that cannot be crossed, they portray tough peppers to establish themselves in the eyes of their population and no more, when necessary, they quickly unwind their fishing rods and run even from the savages of the Taliban

    Here is the same "fabulous d ..." request ))) "! fool
    Again, these empty-headed zapadoids put the "cart" in front of the "horse", confuse the cause with the effect! wassat
    It is for this "perversion of the philistine consciousness" that duty "zombie-horror stories" are needed about the alleged "attack of Russia" so that the Finnish plutocrats could "on the sly", not giving a damn about the salutary "neutrality and good-neighborliness", at the expense of the Finnish townsfolk (and with considerable benefit personally for myself! fellow ) to draw "Suomi-beauty" into the hyperaggressive NATO bloc and its mega-costly militaristic games!

    Finland needs to announce that since they are on the side of the United States, the Iskanders from Yabch are targeting them, so that their boring Russophobic life becomes brighter from new emotions.
