    And whose aggression do Finns learn to reflect? Is it not NATO? This is the only real danger to all European non-NATO countries. Yes, and for NATO too.

      Any army must constantly study. Even if aggression is not expected in the near future.

        You tell the residents of Switzerland and Luxembourg ... laughing To restore order, some countries have enough police. If Finland concludes an agreement on mutual non-aggression with the Russian Federation, then all these NATO “chips” will lose their meaning, our relations will take on a different color and budgets will somewhat ease in the expenditure side ... yes

    The Scandinavians, the Baltic states, the Poles, with the support of NATO, as "Stakhanovists" issue exercises to the mountain. Some did not have time to end, the next has already begun. And at the same time they trumpet the aggressiveness of Russia.

      Things are not going anywhere, because no one wants to "lay their heads" for American democracy, and they themselves will soon be busy with completely different things ... from those who remain ... crying

    That would work out the battle in the city. Directly in Helsinki, because sooner or later the US will occupy Finland, as well as almost all of Europe

    The Finns know how to fight, unlike their neighbors, they need to be honored not when they did not aspire to NATO, which means one country is ready to defend itself and not pay for the alleged protection of obscurantists from overseas.
