Finland Supports Open War Against Russia

Finnish Foreign Minister Elina Valtonen

Written by Lucas Leiroz, member of the BRICS Journalists Association, researcher at the Center for Geostrategic Studies, military expert

Apparently, Emmanuel Macron’s stance on the Ukrainian conflict is gaining supporters among European warmongers. In a recent statement, Finnish Foreign Minister Elina Valtonen supported the plan to send troops to Ukraine in the future, if Kiev proves unable to continue fighting. The case is further evidence of how anti-Russian paranoia is reaching worrying levels among European states, leading them to almost engage in open war with Moscow.

According to Valtonen, Macron is assuming a position of “strategic ambiguity” necessary for the current stage of the conflict. This “ambiguity” consists of not making it clear whether or not NATO troops will be sent to Ukraine. The precise time of the possible deployment also remains unknown. Valtonen sees this position as correct, since, according to her, Western countries must deliberate on such a strategic decision, choosing the moment to openly engage in the conflict.

Her view is that the West should avoid self-imposing red lines. She praises Macron for not ruling out direct intervention as this gives the West freedom to decide how and when to act. In an interview to the Financial Times, Valtonen stated that she does not see any need for Western intervention in the conflict for now, but supported the plan to send troops in the near future, if “necessary”. For her, the most important thing is that there are no strategic limits for the West, with NATO countries having maximum freedom to make any decision regarding the conflict.

“Now’s not the time to send boots on the ground, and we are not even willing to discuss it at this stage. But, for the long term, of course we shouldn’t be ruling anything out (…) Why would we, especially not knowing where this war will go and what happens in the future, disclose all our cards? I really wouldn’t know (…) What I liked about two recent announcements of President Macron is that he said that actually why should we impose ourselves red lines when Putin basically has no red lines?”, she told journalists.

As we can see, the Finnish official considers the direct deployment of troops as a Western “card”. She seems not to care – or simply not to understand – the catastrophic consequences of an open conflict between NATO and Russia. This shows, in addition to high bellicosity, a true diplomatic inability, which is particularly worrying since she is the head of Finnish diplomacy.

It is interesting to note how fallacious Valtonen’s speech is. She states that Europeans should not rule out direct intervention because “Putin basically has no red lines.” However, since the beginning of the special military operation, it is Russia, not the West, that has self-imposed strict limits on how to act in Ukraine. Moscow deliberately moderates its military intensity to avoid side effects and civilian casualties. Instead of launching a high-intensity operation for a prolonged period, the Russians prefer a tactic focused on attrition and slow territorial gain, thus reducing damage to the Ukrainian civilian population.

Bombings against Ukrainian critical infrastructure happen rarely, almost always in retaliation for previous terrorist attacks carried out by Kiev on the border. If Russia really didn’t self-impose red lines, there would no longer be any infrastructure in Ukraine and Kiev would have collapsed a long time ago. Moscow clearly sees the conflict as a tragedy and strives to prevent its consequences from being even more serious for innocent people.

On the other hand, the West clearly has no limits when it comes to acting in Ukraine. In the first weeks of the special military operation, NATO countries promised to limit their support to sending money and humanitarian aid. Before long, weapons began to be sent, and then long-range missiles were arriving in Kiev some months later. NATO simply engaged in a proxy all-out war through the neo-Nazi regime – but was quickly defeated.

With the Ukrainians becoming unable to continue fighting and the Western military-industrial complex collapsing in the face of its inability to produce more weapons for Kiev, the West can only choose between retreating or moving towards direct war. Macron, trying to improve his domestic and international image, launched a “PR stunt” talking about sending troops to Ukraine, but showing no real capacity or willingness to take this dangerous step.

The problem is that among Macron’s audience there are European leaders enraged by the anti-Russian paranoia spread by NATO. These leaders have been deceived by the propaganda of their own “allies” and now truly believe that if they do not make “hard decisions” they will be “invaded by Russia” in the future. Finally, it seems that the lack of rationality and strategic sense is leading European countries to make a serious mistake.

which troops? finland has barely population with no idea of what a war is. the closest thing that pieces.of ice make, is paintball! 😂 their politicians are really stupid for joining nato precisely in the moment of its colapse, when theoretical neutrality worked so well for them during decades…

very wrong! you only see “your side” and point of view. the findland goverment and establishment abandoned a century of ‘neutrality’ and entering nato, signals the western world and empire are an united front against russia. usa exceptionals used ukraine war just to take control over more lands and goverments signaling their true goals to direct confront russia and all who oposses western civilization. that’s why russia now joined the opossite camp with: iran and north korea.

western empire reigned by the uk anglo zionist masters exceptionals should change the name of the western rules based order to a new name: united states enslaved goverments against russia (this is real world and facts right now, maxim: even when you lose you win, aren’t the exceptionals amazing? the craziness of christianity comes alive, when you lose (ukraine war) you win (more aligned states), when you die (ukrainians) you live (new ukraine childrens of the western empire)

Piipii

the reason behind the russian sanctions and to the ukrainian conflict is the same as in the destruction of libya. for destroying currencies that threaten the dollar. libya was overthrown because the countries of the middle east planned a gold-linked currency that would have weakened the dollar. the purpose of the sanctions was to topple the brics; russia and china. the fear of brics overrunning the dollar and the dollar’s ability to blackmail developing countries with economic sanctions

Piipii

also the eu’s ideological disengagement from arab oil and the three seas initiative. in the eastern ukraine has europe’s largest deposit of earth metal, needed for batteries. because ethnic russians voted “wrong”, the us and ger organized a coup in ukraine in 2014 that used fascist militias to help a pro-nato regime come to power. angela merkel confirms 2022 that nato wanted war from the start but needed time to prepare militarily and lead the situation to a large-scale conflict

Piipii

hungarian prime minister orban confirmed in an interview with carlson in 2023 that the decision on ukraine joining nato was already made at the 2008 summit. ukrainian president poroshenko admitted in 2015 that he got power from a conspiracy and that his presidency was not legitimate. the finnish former defense minister revealed that the nato decision was made behind closed doors in 2014. that is, when the eu made a three seas initiative.

Piipii

that is, finland’s nato membership is not directly related to today’s events, on the other hand, it is completely related. everything that is happening now was planned already in 2012. there is a huge amount of evidence and witness statements from the top of politics, military personnel and in the form of documents. this has been blacked out for propaganda reasons in europe. in the usa, this is already known, even in the presidential elections it is discussed openly

Edgar Zetar

truly agreed, but they are full fledge of goals (not just the ones you stated) behind every move of the hegemons, you cannot go or even stand against the masters, they will wipe you out and even make you the guilty of them wiping you out, in the end its your fault because you weren’t a good lackey.

don’t you dare speak for “western civilization” on behalf of a bunch of wef supporting omgwtfbbq2s losers who want to start war with the last white nation on earth that has rejected such things.

i live in the western world and i hope russia to win because the same idiots wanting to fight russia are the same progressive leftist idiots who want to destroy the united states and canada.

Edgar Zetar

i do really understand western civilization and christianity that’s why i can make you these statements, no matter if was usa empire, or british empire or even germany third reich (remember the reich was catholic), the winner of the west would do the same. western civilization had their own universality agenda to mankind, thats why they allow the wef freaks and the 2030 reset and nwo agenda.

she (as most europeans) seems to be totally oblivious to the simple fact that the current conflict is slav against slav, as putin has said repeatedly. so he is being careful. any other country will not have the same caveat applied; russia will have no problem with applying full force. and russians remember that finland was an enthusiastic axis member during the great patriotic war; no quarter will be given.

as a finn i completely disagree with her. she is a neocon and after tens of thousands of civilian casualties in palestine, she said she is a friend of israel. means she is us-israeli agent in finland. all finns that wanted to go went to ukraine and there are perhaps 50 of them. if elina valtonen wants to send finnish troops to ukraine, she should be the first one along with her husband and children.

it’s trolls. their bullshit doesn’t work here so they sabotage, which is all they have left to fight with. it seems their nato weapons have a lot in common with their propaganda. they are both steaming piles of wreckage. if the troll intellect was better maybe they wouldn’t be banging their head against a brick wall of truth. propaganda only works on idiots and morons. these trolls are all in. perhaps these idiots are all nato could get for the money?

she is a dictator’s apprentice who believes that when her party was voted by 20% of finns and entered finnish government, whatever she wants is the will of all finnish people. exactly like hitler thought. you should note this person. valtonen is top no 1 us/israeli spy in finnish government. before her it was anne berner. exact copy of valtonen.

hitler, for all his faults, actually cared about germany and the german people. hitler saw his fight was against zionists and bolsheviks. the jewish lobby declared war on germany in 1933 and most jews across the world where ever they were went along with it. hitler felt he was defending germany whereas elina just wants to help start a war she cannot finnish. pun intended.

by standing up you mean making empty promises that she retracts after vaguely making them. nato article 5 doesn’t count if a country decides to go to war on its own. and besides that you are not talking about fighting people wearing sandals. you want to fight a nuclear power directly? okay buddy make sure to take your iodine pills tonight when mommy puts you to bed.

i despise valtonen from the bottom of my heart. she has double standards of morality. or i would say, she has no morality, she is a criminal war monger. she supports israeli occupation of non-jewish subjects and land and she opposes russian occupation of russian majority parts of ukraine.

Janne Kankaanpää

i could keep speaking to you for hours and hours why elina valtonen is a horrible person. she is ultra right wing of finnish republican party (kokoomus). she is a lobbyist for big corporations and the ultra rich zionists/neocons.

the civilized world does indeed notice that finland joined nazism once again. but if you are like the danes and jens holm, then theres nothing to worry about. you bend over like any other nazi in the eu, and we americans will drop you after you outlived your usefullness, as we did with all the other nazis!
