        In reality, everything was much worse
        Finns in independent Finland, already recognized as temporary, staged the genocide of the RUSSIANS, who suddenly fell into the power of Finnish nationalists. Manerheim, so beloved by degenerates, was also noted in the genocide.
        Finland officially declared war on the SOVIET UNION 4 (four) times, not counting minor provocations. The ideology in Finland has not really changed, Nazism is there in honor, like the Nazi awards of great-grandfathers.

          You have not missed anything. The man under the nickname "General Krasnov" of the Communists curses, apparently wishing that the real Krasnov had time to sell Finland to the Germans ...

    We gave this independence, they proclaimed? Hochma-Lenin presented them with independence on our saucer, if only they remembered our bald guy. But they didn’t think so, they declared their northern Karelia and jumped to us at 18 in the campaign, they jumped to Petrozavodsk, then in the 22nd year, the second campaign, however Poland, as recognized as independent, also went to us for lands, and all Finland and Poland, according to them, are Great countries!

        because we didn’t give her anything, she squeezed it out of us, really, during the intervention, took the opportunity, such gratitude from them means for recognizing Poland as a state on our part ...

    All right, all the way! Once again we will select our, originally Russian lands.
    And there is nothing to roll on Lenin and Stalin - at that moment they did the right thing. It will be necessary - and we will give Moscow all the land, even to the Chinese, even to the Dagestanis. This is not our mind business, up there they know us better. Our business, as the trumpet rings, is to take the faithful Kalash to the liberation campaign. Soon ... already soon !!!

      Do not disgrace Vitalik, or a clone, or a clown, the second is more likely.

      And here it is possible in more detail, since when the land of Novgorod tributaries, "white-eyed miracles", suddenly became originally ours?

      We would have at least a wreck with historical artifacts purchased with the money of Empress Catherine. It turned out that now it lies in the territorial waters of Finland. The dispute with the Finns that the ship and its contents should be returned to Russia has been going on for several years and now it seems to become meaningless since if the object lay at the bottom for 100 years, then it belongs to that country in whose territorial waters it is located. That lasted a century. It's a pity.

      They drink on their own, honestly earned, and not on credit, bringing to the budget of St. Petersburg and Russia, the much-needed currency. And any such separation is always a struggle of desires and opportunities. In Russia, then the possibilities simply did not suffice.

    as Zhirinovsky said, these scoundrels Chukhonets gained independence from the hands of a German agent of the form (Ulyanov) by conspiracy to seize the Winter Palace. and arrest the Provisional Government. that the Jewish Bolsheviks and their writing rats carefully concealed. The conspiracy against Russia allowed the Finns to become impudent and intensified, until Stalin decided to punish the presumptuous insoles. , it was necessary not to stop but to return to the borders of 1914 and make Suomi a republic like Karelia. Stalin had the trump card Saimaa Canal and Porkkala base, which the strangely compliant Khrushchev gave back. After 50 years, the canal swam again as an argument to squeeze the Finns for the scrotum, but an amateur Dimon’s iPhones quickly lease another 50 more - well, a friend of fellow Finnish guys loves, well, just like that ..

    High standard of living, advanced technologies: Nokia, the most
    the world's largest ship diesels and complex machines (for their production) and others,
    Deep sea vehicles. Science (biochemistry, genetics). A combat-ready (proven) army.
    The country is competitive and efficient.
    An example for any small independent country. good
