Wow.

Quote:Russian business daily Vedomosti quoted unnamed sources as saying the foreign and transport ministries were discussing possible action which might force EU airlines into long and costly detours and put them at a disadvantage to Asian rivals by restricting or banning European airlines from flying over Siberia on busy Asian routes. Costs? Over $1.3bn for every months for Lufthansa, BA, and Air France...

Finnair could suffer from proposed Russian transit flight ban

The international news agency Reuters reports Tuesday that Russian foreign and transport ministry officials are considering imposing flight restrictions on European airlines transiting over Siberia to Asia. Finnish national airline Finnair could be one of the airlines facing clipped wings if the Russians decide on the move.

If implemented, the restrictions would result in longer flight times, higher fuel costs and other additional outlays. At the same time they would lose the competitiveness race against Asian airlines. Airline passengers would also face higher ticket prices for flights between Europe and Asia.

I think that is reciprocal measure. At this point I am on the russian side (Oh, God, it is the first and the last time - I promise).
Finland could oppose this EU/US madness. But wait - the winter is coming. So sorry for cold Finland with all russian market closed, no gas, all russian money flied back to mother land (BRICS), stagnation.

:) But wait - it has happen in the past - with the fall of USSR.
Think - all finnish nuclear power plants rely on russian fuel. No electricity?
It is time for finns to deside their position - stagnation with Brussels/Washington or prosperity with russians/BRUCS nations. It is matter of loyalty and treachery. Putin will not forget the treachery.

It's not going to be cold chuckle.gif Oil is getting to be an old fashioned way of heating your house here. Worst thing that happens is gas prices soar. They're astronomical already so traffic has dropped by 20% since the recession started.

Excess heat from local industry provides our warmth in the winter. It's sweltering in here in the winter.

You can easily forget about local industries. Just remember 1992. I know (personally) many businessmen who's business exclusively rely on russian partners - tree/paper/logging industry. Hey, do you really think you can manage on your own? Europe is in recession. And it'll last long. What Finland will do then? Rely only in domestic market? Oh, no, forget it.

Finnish politicians have to face it - the $ is finished, US(SA) is in bankruptcy.

And this is from jun 20 04 (before BRICS).

The (clock) pendulum turn it's direction. 1992 is repeating. With changed roles. This time is not gen. Manerheim to save... Putin is revengeful you see. Just think about it.

Think only what'll happen when russian oligarchs withdraw their money out of Finland. This will be enough.

Hope it'll not happen.

Oh there's no question we're f*cked. I've said that since 1995.

Some of those oligarchs have dual Finnish Russian citizenship. Finland will hurt more than other eu countries and a helluva lot more than Russia.

Thankfully we have an off the grid retreat. A lot of Finns do.

uhhuh.gif Of course they do have double citizenship - russians are the third pillar in Finland. I blame finnish politicians for what happen on domestic level. beercheer.gif After president-lesbian and organizing rising of dull nationalism (much over the healthy level) nothing can makes me wonder anymore. Finland was the most sober member of EU. Not anymore though...
It is going to be great depression undoubtedly. The difference this time is that there is not safe heaven (Sweden and US).
My point is that golden middle for Finland is to be mediator btwn east and west. This time Finland went too much west. So I think.68.gif
