Video: Finland is considering entry restrictions for Russians

STORY: The Finnish government is considering entry restrictions for Russian citizens. The reason is the increasing border traffic between the two countries after the announcement of partial mobilization in Russia, Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin said on Thursday. Finnish border crossings are among the few entry points for Russians into Europe. The EU countries Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland, which also border Russia, have been turning Russian citizens away at the borders for a few days. The Finnish border guard announced on Thursday that traffic had increased during the night on Thursday. It’s a lot busier, but the situation is under control. Finnish officials are ready at nine checkpoints. Already on Wednesday, the border guard had recorded a little more than 4,800 people from Russia, significantly more entries than a week earlier. There were still a good 3100.
