“The results of the parliamentary elections in Finland demonstrated the mood of voters disappointed with the policy of forced to resign a government oriented towards European values. Finnish society is committed to change, demands to listen to the voice of the country’s citizens, ensure their full rights and social security, ”said Sergey Zheleznyak, member of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs. According to him: “The migration problems that have arisen in Finland due to the fault of the cabinet of ministers, who failed to defend the interests of their citizens before the European bureaucrats, significantly influenced the voting results. Finland continued a series of European countries in which Eurosceptic sentiment is growing. ”
At the same time, the politician stressed: “Despite the sanctions anti-Russian policy of Brussels, in recent years, relations between Russia and Finland have become more open and intense. Our countries have great potential for cooperation in various fields. We are trying to use new communication formats with our Finnish colleagues, including by intensifying contacts on inter-parliamentary lines within the Nordic Council, expanding opportunities to strengthen security cooperation, scientific exchanges in order to preserve the Arctic ecosystem and protect the environment.
We hope that the coalition government, which the Social Democrats will form together with the political parties that have passed to the parliament, will retain the constructive tone of the dialogue with Russia and will continue to develop bilateral economic, educational and humanitarian ties. “
