The Finnish “peace”movement “Rauhanpuolustajat” is gathering a demonstration for the 22.5.2017 in Rovaniemi. FB decided I’m interrested, and so I decided to ask if it is OK for me to come with a bandollier against Russian militarization of the Arctic. I got nice civil response that they are only against FOREIGHN troops, namely USA, practicing in Finland. They spun some BS about reindeer babies being born, but it is, still, evidently clear that Rauhanpuolustajat is just a Kremlin controlled “peace movement” in Finland. Just like it was in the 1980’ies.
This becomes really evident in their statements: they are extremely understanding about Russian “Security interests”. And of course nobody else has security issues about Russian aggression.
They have booked a lecture hall From University of Lapland and have invited two “experts” to give speech in their get-together. I do suspect that Russian Embassy again pays for the busses for southern Finland Demonstrators to get into Rovaniemi. Just like they did with “immortal regiment” gig in 9.5.2017. They even had to sprout new Russians in Finland organization, because existing organizations wanted to have nothing to do with this provocation.
