Quote:Finnish Defence Minister Carl Haglund’s wardrobe choices came under heavy scrutiny in the Russian media Monday, with the influential Russian daily Komsomolskaya Pravda headlining a web article with the view that "Finnish politicians express unfettered anti-Russian sentiments."
"Some Finnish politicians have revealed their true colours with their anti-Russian views," the paper wrote, referring to Haglund’s tweet, to which he had attached an image of his blue and yellow tie.

Oh yes, the winter war is one of the bloodier parts of WWII. And yes, it was fought on Finnish ground. Feb. 22 this year it was 70 years ago the Russians bombed a few towns on the west coast killing 7 here in our town.
