Western resources noticed the transfer of self-propelled guns "Gvozdika" from Finland to Ukraine

Even before its entry into NATO, Finland carried out military supplies to Ukraine, supporting the alliance in its struggle against Russia on the territory of the independent. At the moment, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have received such combat systems as the Sisu XA-185 armored personnel carrier, Giacint-B howitzers, Leopard 2R IMR, KRH 120 92-mm mortars, ZU-23 anti-aircraft guns, M72 LAW RPG and APILAS, not to mention provision of ammunition, machine guns, rifles, grenades, helmets, body armor.

At the same time, the range of military assistance is gradually increasing. So, on Western resources, they noticed the transfer of self-propelled guns 122 PSH 74 - this is the local designation "Gvozdik":



This is another “silent transfer” of artillery to Ukrainian troops from Helsinki.

It means that in addition to the officially announced supplies to the independent countries of NATO, there are constantly cargoes, the transfer of which was not reported.

According to available data, Finland should have a total of 74 Gvozdika self-propelled guns, which are currently being replaced by South Korean K9 self-propelled guns (96 units purchased). Apparently, the entire fleet of Soviet self-propelled guns will eventually end up in Ukraine (as integral structures or spare parts) along with other weapons received by Helsinki during the Cold War as part of a mutual assistance pact with the USSR.

        Finns are shitting. In theory, they cannot transfer the equipment purchased from us to third parties without our permission.

          Even if this is so, then who today pays attention to such trifles, and even more so when helping Kyiv to fight with our country. Therefore, the existing "Carnations" of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will be shoved on the "blue eye" and will not frown bashfully.

          Laws, treaties, rules, everything has gone into oblivion, just like from September 1, 1939.

              The overwhelming majority of shipments along the Saimaa Canal were carried out by ships of Russian shipowners. Mostly wood and cement (back more often in ballast). Russia banned the export of pulpwood and Finland stopped buying Russian cement. The channel has not been used since the summer of 2022, now it can be blocked or even buried. Transportation through the canal was no more necessary for Finland than for Russia - trade with other countries was and is not conducted through it.

          We can, because we bought these self-propelled guns from Germany: these are vehicles of the former People's Army of the GDR, which the united Germany did not need. We, contrary to the opinion of the author of the article, did not "receive them from the USSR under a mutual assistance treaty", which creates a false impression that we received them "at the expense" of the USSR, and that the USSR generally provided us with some kind of "aid" to our unilateral benefit.
          The country of purchase, therefore, is Germany, and the country of origin is Poland for some machines, and Ukraine for some (they are made in Kharkov), so there are no problems with the approval of either the supplier or the manufacturer.

      It’s interesting: why does someone manage to either set fire to relay cabinets on the railway, on Russian territory, or recruit Russian citizens for this. But our special services can’t do this! Is this because intelligence officers are exclusively concerned with *protecting* commercial structures? Or they just don’t know how to work, and there’s no one to teach them?
