Tanks "Leopard" and BMP-2: the Finns are moving troops to the east

The Ministry of Defense of Finland has ordered a large-scale transfer of armored equipment to the borders with Russia. Thus, eyewitnesses post videos of trains with tanks and BMP-2 heading towards the eastern neighbor on social networks.

At the moment, at least two such trains are known, carrying, in particular, Leopard 2A6 tanks, tracked tractors and armored personnel carriers. No explanation of these actions from Helsinki has yet been sounded.

Meanwhile, according to Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin, her country has not yet decided on the need to join the military structures of NATO.

We need to decide whether to apply for NATO membership or go the same way. This is a discussion that is currently underway in Parliament

- said the Finnish Prime Minister on May 3 following a meeting with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson (Associated Press quote).

At the same time, the Finnish authorities are acting according to the NATO logic of distancing themselves from the Russian Federation. So, on the eve of the Finns decided to install additional barriers on the Russian-Finnish border, the length of which is 1340 km. Now the two countries are separated only by a barbed wire fence, and soon fences will be built in key areas on the Finnish side.

      The Finnish army denied the data on the "transfer of tanks" to the border with Russia
      "The movement of equipment is related to the military exercises Arrow 22 in Niinisalo and Syakulya," the statement said.

      or someone spreads gossip

    to make it easier for the Finnish Papuans to think, it is necessary to conduct Iskander firing, and tell the Finnish ambassador that Iskander flies at least 2 times further from the apple

    Probably it is necessary to make it very clear to the Finns that they are not our enemies. We are not interested in having an enemy on the northern flank. This needs to be made clear to everyone! Finn heard about it from any news broadcaster. It also needs to be very clear that:
    We are not interested in opening the northern front and sending human resources there. No repetition of the "winter war". But if suddenly the Finns want to enter into hostilities against the Russian Federation, the return of Karelia, etc., then tactical nuclear weapons in the nearby Finnish territories for a start, and if it seems unconvincing, then nuclear weapons will fly more seriously to their ecologically clean lands. And paintball will not take place in the forests of Finland and Karelia.

    The first step across our border means death for any NATO country. Let them jerk if there is no mind.
