    Finland has this bad luck to find herself on the border with Russia, and Russia has this bad habit to be nasty to her neighbors. It follows that Finland must have the best of the cream in weaponry, which explains why this decision to purchase the Israeli-made Gabriel 5. There are true real missiles, not S-300 lemons.

    My father’s family hailed from Czernovici, once Moldavia/Romania now in Ukraine. Go Romania and I hope you can round up the financing to get the Iron Dome from Israel.

    Finland will become part of the Northern COnfederacy. So it looks like they will lose the battle with ROSH despite these arms.
