Finland is not renewing its temporary border deal with Russia – Finnish professor: “We should not be lulled into anything now”

Summary:

Finland is not negotiating to renew the temporary border agreement with Russia. The agreement was negotiated after 1713 refugees came to the Eastern border from November to February. Professor Markku Kivinen from Helsinki University is surprised that a new deal is not negotiated. He finds that the deal has helped to keep the EU’s northernmost border well. Vice Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee Pertti Salolainen finds that renewing the deal would be timely.
