I guess somebody forgot about the "Winter War".

There's plenty of room for all God's creatures. Right next to the mashed potatoes!

Vyborg used to be in Finland. 13.gif They're pissed off by Finland's political fashion sense.

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.

"This includes 150,000 infantry, 90 warplanes, 120 helicopters, 880 tanks, 80 warships and other military machinery. It was massive!"

Too bad there was no evidence of that in the pictures! All you really see if a couple of tanks doing exercises. Plus this is obviously a controlled release, that's no camera phone, it's a digital camera probably in the hands of an official photographer.

iagree.gif Read yesterday (RT?) I forget, that Russia's agreement with Ukraine includes army bases and up to 26,000 troops. There was no invasion, those troops were already there. But the media just tells you what they want you to believe.

hug.gif Hej Shadow! At least the numbers who believe the media are dwindling. Perhaps stupid may fall under 50% one day.
I'm not going to hold my breath though.

You mentioned the Winter War just after your threads headline "this,right next to Finland" so i'm thinking that you meant those two statements to be together?!

I'm fairly certain that at least some of that terrible Winter War took place not only right next to Finland but also inside Finland on Finnish ground but i could be wrong?!

As did the not so long after conflicts between Finland and Germany driving out Russia and a couple of years later Finland and Germany against a Russia that was re-invading Finland....

We could get everyone on Reddit to hold THEIR breath instead. Give it a few minutes and then we might have the majority percentage.

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.

Finland:

25,904 dead or missing
43,557 wounded
1,000 captured
957 civilians in air raids
20–30 tanks
62 aircraft
70,000 total casualties

Russia:

126,875 dead or missing
188,671 wounded, concussed or burned
5,572 captured
3,543 tanks
261–515 aircraft
323,000 total casualties

So close to half a million dead people in 4 months time. damned.gif

Stalin and his generals were brutal and unforgiving virtually evil (not that Hitler and the Nazis were not because they were) as they just kept pouring in more and more men and women and material no matter what the cost,like as in 30,000,000 Russians killed in just four years during World War Two 12,000,000 soldiers and 18,000,000 civilians,stunning numerical figures and unbelievable pain and suffering and death that we are unable to really wrap our heads around and cannot truly understand...
