Ville Nurmi is an exception among Finnish volunteers. He was asked by Ukrainians come to #Ukraine & fight against #Russia`ns. He didn't think for long, looked online what to take with him & bought them. He also got 2 of his friends along for trip.

#Turpo #Säkpol
Nurmi bought protective vest, helmet, active hearing protection, clothes, equipment bag, daypack, sleeping bag & pad, rain clothes, tourniquets 4 per fighter, pressure bandages normal & hemostatic. Burn gel, nitrile gloves, normal bandages, nasopharyngeal tube, space blankets. Image
They had loaded car with their own & also with first aid supplies to donate to others

They drove to #Ukraine. Contact person at border so it was easy to get through it. Ukrainians were grateful that group would come as far as from #Finland just to fight against #Russia`ns Image

1. Toisin kuin Venäjän 2014 aggression jälkeen Itämerellä ei ole vuonna 2022 juurikaan nähty spill over -turbulenssia. Räjähdykset Nord Stream 1 & 2 -putkissa on mahdollisesti ensimmäinen selvä alueellinen heijastevaikutus hyökkäyssodasta Ukrainassa. #turpo
2. Kaikki on toki vielä spekulatiivista, mutta Venäjällä voidaan nähdä olevan halu ja kyky toteuttaa räjähdykset, vaikka kyseessä on oma infra. Se on kehittänyt kykyjä muun muassa merenalaisten datakaapelien vaurioittamiseen.
3. Räjähdykset eivät suoraan heikennä Euroopan energiaturvallisuutta. NS1 on suljettu ja NS2 tunnetusti laitettiin jäihin. Niillä voi kuitenkin olla psykologinen vaikutus. Vastaava teko nimittäin voidaan toteuttaa muualla - esimerkiksi Norjasta Eurooppaan kulkevissa putkistoissa.

Olen nähnyt useamman esittävän, että Suomen tulisi sulkea Venäjän suurlähetystö ja konsulaatteja. Miksi mielestäni tämä ei ole hyvä idea? Koska maiden välistä diplomaattista kanssakäymistä säätelee useat sopimukset, muun muassa Wienin sopimus. On kaikkien maiden etu, että 1/4
näitä sopimuksia kunnioitetaan. Suomella on Venäjällä neljä edustustoa. Vastavuoroiset toimet kohdistuisivat meihin jos lähtisimme sopimuksia irtisanomaan ja rikkomaan. Vaikka tämänhetkisessä tilanteessa yhteistyömme on syystä minimissä, on tärkeätä, että meillä on 2/4
diplomaattiset kanavat auki suureen naapurimaahan. Meillä tulee aina kuitenkin olemaan käytännön asioita joista tarpeen sopia ja muutenkin on tärkeätä, että aina on kanava vuropuheluun auki. Puolustan siis vahvasti sitä, että Suomi on maa joka kunnioittaa tekemiään sopimuksia 3/4

Some spread #fakenews that large number of #Russia`ns are moving to #Finland. This isn`t true, normal passport control points aren`t even open at #Vaalimaa border station due to the small amount of traffic.

Russians are also required to have visa to Finland. "Only" 100 000 have it.

Others can´t move to even to the border area.

Thread about Finnish volunteer "Roni" who have been in #Ukraine not for helping them but #Finland (#Russia is the only threat)

Trigger warning to everyone who does not know how to accept the criticism by Finnish volunteers against Ukraine & Ukrainian army
#Turpo #Säkpol Image
"Roni" went to #Ukraine at the beginning of war & was in #Yavoriv garrison when #Russia launched missile strike there in early March.

Many other volunteers then went home.

#Turpo #Säkpol Image
Most of the Finns wanted to go fight #Russia`ns but #Ukraine army made sure with paper war that Finns stayed in #Kiev area to train Ukrainians.

Heikko ja hajanainen/hajonnut Venäjä on Suomen (& maailman) etu.

Suomessa elää sitkeänä käsitys, että heikko & hajanainen 🇷🇺 on vaarallinen & ikävä kehityskulku. Päinvastoin monet oikein toivoo vahvaa & "vakaata" Venäjää.

Tässä🧵kerron miksi asia on juuri päinvastoin. 1/
#turpo
Sanotaan heti aluksi, että heikossa/hajanaisessa Venäjässä on toki riskinsä. Epävakaus saattaa säteillä sen rajojen ulkopuolelle. Tätä pelättiin NL hajottua, mm. pakolaisvyöryjen muodossa.

Mutta se ei toteutunut. Sen sijaan, vahva Venäjä on aina ollut uhka Suomelle.
2/
Perusasiat ensin,

Venäjä on olemukseltaan (tiedän, tämä on epämääräinen termi valtioista puhuttaessa) imperialistinen maa, joka suhtautuu vihamielisesti ulkomaailmaan. Venäjälle maailma on viidakko, jossa selviää vain voimalla. Tapa tai tule tapetuksi - hallitse tai tule...

#Russia retreat 5km on west side of #Kherson. Reason is that they could not get enough artillery rounds over river without bridges or continuous ferry connection.

Time will tell if same thing happens east of Kherson.

#Turpo #Säkpol #Ukriane Image
It is clear to everyone at this point that #Russia is not capable of continuing attack in region even in medium to long term. Keeping bridgehead is pointless in this troop situation (there are no more reserves).

But there is also no point to help #Ukraine attack on other side.
Troops are also known to fight better if they have water behind them so they cannot escape.

#Kherson Front is now over 230km. #Russia have change to cut it to 100km if they retreat.

Finns in #Ukraine going their next operation to kill #Russia`ns.

Looks that they are ironically playing old leftist song "Palkkasoturi" (Mercenary) by Hector from 1965

#Turpo #Säkpol #Finland
He is a soldier by profession, he always fights
He's happy in his job, I guess
He destroys and kills, yet always smiles
He does not know peace, or love
He is a brave man & many skills shown
for us

In #Finland, construction companies use their extra concrete every day for protective elements. State buys them for use by army.

In this exercise, rescue service practices ruin rescue after #Russia`n attack against civilian targets.

" To be a tourist in the #EU is not a fundamental right."

And same time:
- #Russia`n passport is recognized as valid travel document
- No #visaban
- No deportations of Russians out of EU

#Turpo #Säkpol
"Commission has also adopted a legislative proposal on the non-recognition of #Russia`n passports issued in occupied regions of #Ukraine."

So citizen of Ukraine who only has a passport issued by Russia cannot leave Russia to #EU.
+ 50 euros to Visa is a joke. Bad joke.

Do someone really believe that 50 euros is threshold question to those who travel to #EU from #Russia?

Vaikka alueen haltuunotto ei olekaan hyökkäysten ainoa, eikä liikesodankäynnissä/siihen pyrkiessä myöskään päätavoite itsessään, ulostulo mielenkiintoinen. Syitä sille voi olla useita. Ne kietoutuvat osin #aika'an; hyökkäyksen todelliset vaikutukset näkyvät viipeellä #turpo 1/🧵
Erityisesti voidaan arvioida signaloitavan niille, jotka odottivat Kiovan suunnan kaltaista systeemiromahdusta tapahtuvan välittömästi myös etelässä. Se toki voi olla edelleen edessä ja saavutettavissa, mutta vastoin yleisiä hartaita toiveita, sen kehittyminen ottaa aikaa. 2/
Mikä uusimmassa ulostulossa on erikoista, on väite, että hyökkäys olisi nimenomaan tehty venäläisvoimien kuluttamiseksi.
Aikaisemman narratiivin mukaanhan läntiset "wunderwaffet", partisaani/erikoisjoukko-operaatiot ja erityisesti Ukrainan päättäväinen 'Résistance' riittivät. 3/

Finnish reserve lieutenant @rsiren2 fought for months as volunteer in #Ukraine armed forces. He fought against #Russia`n invaders in direction of #Kharkiv, saw the reality of war:

"You talk to someone & after a while he is dead"

#Turpo #Säkpol #Finland Image
@rsiren2 Less than week after start of #Russia`n attack, @rsiren2 31, was already in #Ukraine.

"It's clear that Russia is doing wrong & here it's big versus small. It is exactly the same situation as in #Finland during #winterwar & then almost no one helped us"

#Turpo #Säkpol Image
On March 13, #Russia hit #Javoriv military base right near #Lviv with 30 missiles.

According to #Ukraine authorities, 61 died & over 160 were wounded in that attack.

"At that time, we were just gathering troops. After that attack many foreign fighters went home"

Ketju #jauhojengi'sta.
Joskus xx vuotta sitten olin luennoimassa valtionhallinnon väelle, millaisia rumia #infosota #disinformation temppuja vastapuoli voisi päättäjien kiusaksi keksiä - saadakseen aikaan kaaosta ja uskottavuusvajetta. 1/5
Spekuloin, että mm. aidot rai rai biletyskuvat voisi saada sopivalla mielleyhtymällä näyttämään huumeorgioilta ja (sille ajalle tyypilliset) viattomat saunakuvat perheen kanssa menisivät ulkomaanyleisölle lapsipornosta. Kenraalin käsi ei-puolisonsa takapuolella - om nom. 2/5
Kuulijat protestoivat. "Ei kukaan suomalainen toimittaja ala huhujen perusteella uutisoida että virkamies käyttää huumeita, ilman että kysyy ensin. Eikä ainakaan vihjaa jos ei näyttöä ole. Eikä kuvia uskota kritiikittä."

Toivoin samaa - tähän #SannaMarin aamuun asti. 3/5
