Finland wants to close transit and entry from Russia, September 22, 2022 – September 22, 2022

Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin said that the Finnish government considers it necessary to stop Russian tourism and transit through Suomi. But she could not accurately answer the question about the time of the closure of the eastern border of the country.

“The will of the government is very clear. In our opinion, it is necessary to put an end to Russian travel, tourism, as well as transit through Finland. It’s hard to figure out how to do it. This requires security authorities to assess the risk that passengers pose. Other countries, such as the Baltic states, have used the security threat as a reason to prevent the arrival of tourists. The situation should be reassessed. The assessment must be done quickly,” Finnish media quoted Marin as saying on September 22.

She also noted that Finnish legislation in the event of risks or threats at the border suggests the possibility of its closure and “if there is a need to respond, we will respond.”

In the meantime, many cars from Russia have accumulated on the borders of Finland. From Wednesday evening traffic jams were even at night. How wrote “Fontanka”almost 5,000 Russians arrived in Finland over the past 24 hours.
