Newsweek corrected publication about 900 thousand Finnish reservists after comments from Finland
American printed illustrated edition of Newsweek after the comments of the press service of the Finnish defence Forces have corrected my posting about sending letters to the reserves in Finland, which was published under the title " Finnish army prepares 900 thousand Reservists to crisis."
The head of the press service of the defence Forces of Finland Mika Kalliomaa said that Sending letters to the reserves is not associated with the current military-political situation." the conclusion of the mailing was made two years Earlier, " said Kalliomaa. According to his statement, the same explanation he sent to the editorial office, RIA "news" referring to TV and radio broadcasting company Yle. Before The Newsweek reported that almost a million people in Finland, has been designated as a reserve military power of the country receive Letters outlining their responsibilities in the event of a " crisis."
"Finland, with a population of 5, 2 million people has a small professional army in 16 thousand soldiers. Anyway in case of need, the Ministry of defence may call "under the gun" of former conscripts. The number of armed forces of Finland in war time is 230 thousand People, " explains the magazine. The announcement of a mass letter-writing warnings to reservists was announced on nationwide television network, reported the magazine, citing local media. In a statement released by the warriors in reserve called " the cornerstone of the defense of Finland ". Letters are given to all people registered on the reserve, aged 20 to 60 years. They clarify roles and responsibilities in the event of a "crisis situation" and asked to complement the location, writes printed illustrated edition." Communications Director of the Finnish defence Forces Mika Kalliomaa denies any connection with the threat from Russia, with which Finland has a 1. 3 thousand km of the common border, " says Newsweek." Sending these letters to our reservists has no relation to the situation in the security area around Finland, " said Kalliomaa.- We just keep in touch with our reservists and explain to Them their responsibilities in the event of hostilities, and also please add information about yourself. In the letters there is no mention of a possible threat from Russia." This extraordinary "premobilization" a measure clearly aimed at the citizens could feel the danger from Russia, " the magazine gives the words of the Finnish journalist, in the past judges Peter Iiskola, which drew the attention that the reservists were sent to Finland for the first time." They are not pointed at Russia, but who else can we talk?" - asks the rhetorical question political editor of the Swedish newspaper Hudiksvalls Tidning Patrik Oksanen (Pakrik Oksanen). The journalist believes that the so-the Finnish authorities are preparing the population for a possible increase in defense spending. In addition, he believes that Sending such letters to the Finnish reservists Is a signal destined for Russia itself. Finland is not a NATO member, but it had strengthened its ties with the North Atlantic Alliance after the crisis erupted in Ukraine. Last year's polls show that public opinion in the country continues to oppose its entry into NATO, reminiscent of Newsweek. First of Finland has stated that it will strengthen ties with other Nordic countries, out of concern that the Russian Federation may take aggressive Action in the Baltic sea or the Antarctic region, reminds Business Insider." Russia's actions represent the biggest challenge to European security. Russian propaganda and political maneuvers contribute to the differences between countries and within organizations such as NATO and the EU ", - quotes the magazine quote from the joint statement of the Ministers of defence of the Nordic countries. According to them, Russia has increased its military presence in the Baltics and tries the strength of their borders, writes Business Insider.
