The Finnish State Under-Secretary for EU Affairs Jori Arvonen has confirmed that the European hybrid threat centre will come to Finland. Arvonen says the interest has been very high, both in the framework of EU and Nato. The main goal of the centre is to strengthen the defence against hybrid threats and increase awareness about them. The participants will come from EU and Nato countries. The centre will have a network structure wherein the day-to-day operations are run from Helsinki while the core competences come from other state capitals. The centre will start its first operations already during the spring.
