Finland is scared of Russia's increasing shelling of Ukraine, the military chief said - if attacked then we are also ready for war
The war between Russia and Ukraine is about to complete in four months. Meanwhile, Russia has intensified shelling to capture the Donbas region. On Wednesday, within a single day, Russia dropped seven missiles on the city of Mykolev. Given the intensity of the attack, Finland's military chief, General Timo Kivinen, has given a statement. He has said that if Russia attacks, we will enter the war with full force. He said that the people of Finland are ready to fight and we have prepared ammunition for the war.
Kivinen said Finland had made good military preparations since World War II. This country had two wars with Russia in the 1940s. Significantly, Russia and Finland share a border of 810 miles. Kivinen said that we have developed our military defense system in a better way. This is how it has been prepared so that we can fight a war like Ukraine. We have also kept more ammunition and air force ready for this. In the end, he said that Ukraine has so far proved to be a nuisance for Russia and we will prove to be the same for it.
