The idea is to pass communication that aims to nudge public debate to the desired direction amid true information, explains Mika Aaltola, a researcher at the Finnish Institute of International Affairs.

In fact, I think that we can not cut down all our own soup to the neck of this one finnbay-site, especially as the President of Finland has said that's it so, if Finland's own interests require, he will put aside to all prohibitions and sanctions, and will take the phone line to the Russia.
Finnish media themselves have shared their modified information about the the Second World War - and now it has continued for 70 years.
