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.
