    The Soviet navy during World War II is perhaps best remembered for its vigorous role in the doomed defense of the ports of Odessa and Sevastopol in the Crimean Sea. However, in the Arctic north, the Soviet warships would have a major impact in the opening months of the war with Nazi Germany. A ragtag fleet of destroyers and patrol boats, backed up by two stout-hearted rifle divisions, brought Hitler’s elite mountain troops skidding to a halt, preserving a vital supply line to Britain and the United States.

Reuters/Vesa Moilanen For the next two years, 2,000 unemployed people in Finland will share a special bond: Thanks to a new federal program, they'll each receive a free $600 per month, no questions asked. Even if people get a job, the money will keep coming in. The program, put on by the country's social security agency, Kela, is testing out a modified version of basic income. Under basic income, every citizen gets a regular allowance regardless...

Using armor piercing Tungsten rounds to see how many steel it can punch through. The weapon utilizes skis and a special bipod to stabilize the recoil. The Lahti L-39 is a Finnish 20 mm anti-tank rifle used during the Second World War. It had excellent accuracy, penetration and range, but its size made transportation difficult. It was nicknamed “Norsupyssy” ("Elephant Gun"), and as tanks developed armour too thick for the Lahti to penetrate its uses switched to...

Despite Finland pledging $55 Million Euros to NATO, Niinistö also made it clear that European nations need to ultimately be responsible for their own security.
  • USAF deploys WC-135 sniffer aircraft to UK as spike of radioactive Iodine levels detected in Europe

    Aviationist Blog ^ | 2/19/2017 | Dave Cenciotti
    Since January 2017, low levels of radioactive Iodine-131 contamination have been detected over various European countries. Highest levels have been detected in Poland. The radioactive particles were first detected in Finland. Source is anyone's guess, but the initial area of detection and area of highest concentration point to Russia. I disagree with the blog's conclusion that this is likely to be a nuclear test since I-131 has a short half-life of 8 days. More likely, there's an ongoing issue with a Russian nuclear reactor. (Doesn't have to be a power station - could be a sub or other naval reactor.)

    A trace of radioactive Iodine-131 of unknown origin was in January detected over large areas in Europe. Since the isotope has a half-life of only eight days, the detection is a proof of a rather recent release. Where the radioactivity is coming from is still a mystery. The air filter station at Svanhovd was the first to measure small amounts of the radioactive Ionide-131 in the second week of January. The station is located a few hundred metres from Norway’s border to Russia’s Kola Peninsula in the north. Soon, the same Iodine-131 isotope was measured in Rovaniemi in Finnish Lapland....

    Larry Vickers gets a chance to take this ultra-rare Sako M92S Rifle down range, which was based on the Soviet AK and Valmet Rifles. The semi-automatic only Sako M92S rifle fires the 7.62x39mm cartridge. This model has a folding stock, a grenade launcher adapter and gas cut off switch. With many other add-ons, this rifle with a milled receiver is quite the shooter. The magazine release is very slick. According to Larry, the shooting feels soft and thinking that the Fin’s did not overload the gas like the AK-47, most AK’s are overloaded with gas. This sweet-shooting Finnish rifle is...

    (Vatican Radio) Pope Francis on Thursday said that “the intention of Martin Luther five hundred years ago was to renew the Church, not divide her”. Speaking to members of an Ecumenical Delegation from Finland who are in the Vatican to take part in the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, the Pope recalled his visit to Sweden last October and said that the “gathering there gave us the courage and strength, in our Lord Jesus Christ, to look ahead to the ecumenical journey that we are called to walk together.” The Pope ended his speech with off-the-cuff remarks thanking the...

    Finland's national airline is not superstitious. Finnair flight AY666 took off from Copenhagen and flew to Helsinki on Friday the 13th. What's more, the baggage code for Helsinki airport is HEL. Finnair has been making this flight for many years, but it gets particularly attractive whenever it happens on Friday the 13th. The last flight under similar circumstances was on May 13, 2016. It landed successfully three minutes late without any problems. “It has been quite a joke among the pilots. I'm not a superstitious man. It's only a coincidence for me,” pilot Juha-Pekka Keidasto said previously. “If there's some...

    Ah, socialism. Is there ever a time you fail to amuse us?In Finland we are seeing the launch of an idea which has been popular among liberals for quite some time but hasn’t really caught on anywhere. The government there has launched a pilot program where a select group of unemployed people will be given an assured basic income starting this month with no strings attached, no requirement to work (or do anything else for that matter) and no end to the program even if they go back to work. What could possibly go wrong? (Associated Press) Finland has...

    Finland has started a radical experiment: It's giving 2,000 citizens a guaranteed income, with funds that keep flowing whether participants work or not. The program, which kicks off this month, is one of the first efforts to test a "universal basic income." Participants will receive €560 ($587) a month -- money that is guaranteed regardless of income, wealth or employment status. The idea is that a universal income offers workers greater security, especially as technological advances reduce the need for human labor. It will also allow unemployed people to pick up odd jobs without losing their benefits. The initial program...

    Finland has become the first country in Europe to pay its unemployed citizens a basic monthly income, amounting to €560 ($587), in a unique social experiment which is hoped to cut government red tape, reduce poverty and boost employment. Olli Kangas from the Finnish government agency KELA, which is responsible for the country’s social benefits, said Monday that the two-year trial with the 2,000 randomly-picked citizens who receive unemployment benefits kicked off Jan. 1. Those chosen will receive €560 every month, with no reporting requirements on how they spend it. The amount will be deducted from any benefits they already...

    Go to the source for examples of persecution within European countries. https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/9525/europe-illegal-criticize-islam Here's a summary: First, understand that prosecuting and sanctioning people who criticize Islam has become more common in Europe. This explains the seemingly pitiful willingness of the Europeans to silently watch their countries fill with muslim refugee-settlers. They are now prosecuted for free speech. The "cutting out the tongue" or "imprisonment" policies for criticism of islam was once restricted to only sharia law -Muslim countries where it is 100% forbidden. Now the European courts are submitting to islam and taking cues from sharia law. European governments are deliberately...

    A gunman in southeastern Finland shot dead three women, including a local politician, outside a restaurant around midnight local time using a rifle, according to police on Sunday. The shooting took place in Imatra, about a three hours drive east of Helsinki, Finland's capitol. Police detained a 23-year-old man who did not resist arrest. According to The Guardian the man had a criminal record, though neither his name nor any details of his criminal history were provided. The Guardian also named one of the victims as Tiina Wilen-Jappinen, the chairwoman of Imatra's council. The other victims were journalists according to...
