Helsinki does not currently fear an attack from Russia but sees the country as "an existential threat," Finnish Foreign Minister Elina Valtonen told the Presse newspaper, APA reports.

"We don’t currently fear a conventional military attack. However, we can see that Russia is an existential threat in the long term, which affects not just some European countries but our entire continent," she said.

According to Valtonen, "a hybrid war" is underway, with Russia allegedly sending "people who don’t have the necessary documents" to the border with Finland.
