The Federation Council evaluated Finland’s elected president 16:49

Chairman of the Federation Council Commission on Information Policy and Interaction with the Media, Alexey Pushkov, said in an interview with that Finland has completed its return to NATO and the USA. This is how he commented on the results of the Finnish presidential election, won by former Prime Minister Alexander Stubb.

“Stubb has always been and will remain a pro-American, pro-NATO and anti-Russian politician. He demonstrated this position in the 2010s, and in fact the former president of Finland Sauli Niinistö was the main oppositionist against Russia. “Stubb is the embodiment of the pro-American trend in European politics,” the senator explained.

From Pushkov’s point of view, the former Finnish Prime Minister’s victory in the elections was a sign of Finland’s rejection of any form of neutrality and the country’s involvement in World War II. It is the logical outcome of the line it followed from World War II until recently.

“So this is a trend towards NATO that has emerged in recent years. “Finland is returning to the anti-Soviet course it followed in the 20s and 30s of the last century,” the senator emphasized.

The second round of the presidential elections in Finland was held on February 11. According to the results, Stubb won with 51.6% of the votes. The former prime minister’s opponent was former Foreign Minister Pekka Haavisto, with 48.4% of the votes. At the same time, participation in the elections was 67.6 percent.
