Finnish Word Мaalaisjarki Means Common Sense in English

In response to Washington-inspired sanctions imposed by the West Russia banned food products from the European Union, the United States, Australia, Canada and Norway... Having become hostages of the EU myopic policy, European companies lose profits and have to fire their employees to fill the ranks of European unemployed. Valio, a Finnish dairy producer, is a good example. Recently it has announced one more round of job cuts... Esa Luomanperä, a joint stock company director, warned about problems to emerge in case export is stopped. In Finnish maalaisjarki does not exactly mean common sense. The word has a special meaning hard to convey with the help of literal translation. It is related to the notion of reasonable thinking and practical wisdom – a kind of pragmatic mentality typical for peasants. Maalaisjarki is what Esa Luomanperä alludes to when he says that Western politicians should be able to look ahead a bit, «The ongoing trade war is like a chess game. And it takes two to play chess»...

From Leppävaara to war-torn Syria

Last year, Sayid Hussein Feisal Ali decided to leave Leppävaara, Espoo, to fight alongside jihadist militants in war-torn Syria. In early August, the young man, known by his nom de guerre Abu Shuayb as-Somali, appeared in a propaganda video uploaded to YouTube, urging Finns to join him in "the caliphate" of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

Finland: Doomed Without Russia

...The EU leadership is testing the ground to see where it stands with Russia. That was the main purpose of Finish President Sauli Väinämö Niinistö’s visit to Russia. He met Russian President Vladimir Putin in Sochi on August 15. The talks could be seen as a cautious attempt of the European Union to ease tensions in the relations with Moscow... It would not be an exaggeration to say that this is a matter of survival for Finland. The country occupies a special place in the relations between the European Union and Moscow with 10% of Finish exports going to Russia. According to Russian Federation of food industry, Russia accounts for about 25% of Finland’s agricultural production exports... The energy sanctions planned by the West may hurt the Finish economy even more... About 70% of the energy consumed by Finland comes from Russia...

NATO Beefs Up European Presence – Balancing on Brink of Dangerous Aggravation

«Changes to troop locations will be made at the political level to address the new paradigm in the wake of the Russian-Ukraine crisis», Air Force Gen. Philip Breedlove, head of U.S. European Command and Supreme Allied Commander Europe, tweeted on May 7... The exercises conducted simultaneously result in a dangerous stand-off. It means balancing on the brink of serious aggravation and nobody knows where a spark may come from. SOF subversive activities in the explosive region are certainly not the best way to ease tensions. Sitting down and talking things over is a much more preferable approach. Perhaps the international event in Normandy was a chance President Obama opted to miss. But it’s never too late to do what is right.

Finland: NATO Membership – Dubious Goal

A major military exercise has kicked off in Latvia. The Sabre Strike war games involve 4,700 troops and 800 military vehicles. Russia sees NATO's military build-up in the vicinity of its borders as a sign of hostility. Not a member of the alliance, Finland is among the participants in the unfriendly action. While the debate has been simmering in for some time, Finland is encouraged to seriously consider full-fledged NATO membership by influential political circles and segments of social elite. The situation in Ukraine is used as a pretext for putting the issue to the fore. NATO membership could come up for debate before the 2015 parliamentary elections. The ongoing discussions may have prominent international implications...

Brzezinski about Ukraine: Underlying Meaning of Finland Option

A coup took place in Kiev of February 22, 2014. The same day the Financial Times published the Russia Needs to be Offered a ‘Finland Option’ for Ukraine article by Zbignew Brzezinski... Mr. Brzezinski has a long history of giving advices to many US administrations. Now he comes up with an offer to lend a helping hand to the new government in Kiev and deter Russia from taking resolute steps to defend its interests of vital importance in Ukraine... The Brzezinski’s idée fixe is the further fragmentation of Eurasia’s political map (along the former Yugoslavia lines) that’s why he virulently opposes any form of integration in the post-Soviet space...

If NATO were ever called on to defend an alliance member, «we have to be prepared for the more high-end of military operations», said U.S. Air Force General Philip Breedlove speaking at a NATO headquarters at Brunssum in the Netherlands on September 18...

The Western Challenge to Eurasian Integration

The main players in the project are Sweden in the north, Poland in the west, and NATO member Turkey in the south...

 Leading Sweden and Finland into the embrace of NATO will make the nations targets of potential retaliatory strike while   compelling them to participate in unwanted wars. As one can see the policy is implemented against the will of common people who find good neighborly relations with everyone and sticking to traditional neutrality as the course that serves them best. They also realize Russia will not stand idle looking at further NATO expansion…

Kiev Elections Can’t Sanitise State of Mob Rule

The Kiev regime’s parliamentary elections this weekend are set to go ahead amid an atmosphere of rampant political street violence and intimidation – and that’s not in the war-torn eastern part of Ukraine. The parliamentary elections were called in June by the then elected President Petro Poroshenko as a way of legitimising the illegal coup against the Ukrainian government that occurred four months previously with the support of the American Central Intelligence Agency... In the paraphrased words of Abraham Lincoln, no electoral process can sanitise the glaring fact of Kiev’s rule of the mob, by the mob, for the mob.
