I doubt it will have many problems getting the required signatures.
Opinion polls show support for the EU in Finland is lower than in the UK.
This will be interesting to watch as it unfolds.

Rules and regulations mainly

Outside the EU Finland could have all sorts of trade with Russia. I think it would benefit the economy.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

It looks like trade between Finland and Russia has grown substantially lately, but that could just be mostly with petroleum products lately, perhaps due to population growth. So, what rules and regulations are getting in the way of trade?

That's exports to Finland from Russia. As you may remember EU imposed trade sanctions on Russia and Russia countered with applying bans on importing a lot of products EU. It had a very real and significant effect on the economy here.

We shall see. I'm still not believing the UK is really prepared to do this.

Why didn't Finland leave sooner, I've been reading the 'leave' debates started last year?
