    This parliamentary group was put together after Russia's invasion of Ukraine. All political parties agree on increased spending, of course all new weaponry must be NATO compatible. Also military doctrine is revised to be able to quickly suppress any unrest at the border areas, the so called "polite green men" action plan. Also new "host nation" agreement with NATO was greeted with wide support. Possibly Finland will join NATO even if Sweden does not.

    My advice to Finland is to stay clear of Russia-West dispute.

    Finland should stay neutral. That is the best course for your survival.

    I am certain that Russia and China will act in unison when push comes to shove. Finland is a small country which cannot stop the bulldozer. It will get crushed.
