Aamulehti reports that the discussion of the Finnish Presidential candidates discussed issues of EU defence among other things. MEP Nils Torvalds finds that during a difficult crisis the EU common defence does not work. President of Finland Sauli Niinistö sees progress in common defence and says that the EU is more efficient in case of hybrid threats and intelligence issues. MEP Merja Kyllönen reminds that the EU’s rapid response troops never got in motion.
