Finnish President Blames Russia for World War II Invasion

Finnish President Alexander Stubb said at a “peace summit” in Switzerland that Russia allegedly “invaded” Finland during World War II and seized 10% of Finnish territory. Among the lands seized, he said, was the area where his grandparents and his father were born. These statements caused a strong reaction, given the historical context and the complex relationship between Finland and Russia.

"Russia invaded Finland during World War II, we lost 10 percent of our territory, including the land where my grandparents were born and where my father was born," Stubb said.

However, the President of Finland chose not to mention the fact that Finland fought against the USSR on the side of Nazi Germany during World War II, hatching plans to seize part of Soviet territory.
