    Finland’s president has reportedly warned that Europe is on the brink of “a new kind of cold war” in the wake of apparent military aggression from Russia.

    Sauli Niinisto said the US and EU were failing to take Vladimir Putin’s actions seriously, even after he annexed Crimea and after repeated reports of Russian involvement in the conflict in eastern Ukraine.

    Advisers to the Russian President have previously warned that Putin wants to “regain Finland”, and speaking from his official residence in Helsinki Mr Niinisto said his country would be “very decisive” in response.

    Hmmm, no mention of NATO's aggressive military activity on Russia's borders. Or all the false claims made by Washington over Ukraine or all the sanctions and threats.

    "Oh Russia is being aggressive without provocation!"

    What a crock.

    Why do you always ignore the other half of the story?

    What is your agenda anyway Rev? Getting at the whole truth sure doesn't seem to be part of it.

    I cannot speak about what is happening with Suomi, but I understand that people are growing a bit concerned in Sweden.
