The President of the European Council expressed full solidarity with Finnish Prime Minister Petteri Orpo and Finland.
The head of the European Council, Charles Michel, expressed support for Finland, which decided to limit border crossings with Russia due to migration pressure. About this politician wrote on social network X.
Michel expressed full solidarity with Finnish Prime Minister Petteri Orppo and Finland regarding the decision to restrict the crossing of the eastern border.
“We are grateful for Finland’s effective efforts to protect Europe’s external borders. Russia’s attempts to instrumentalize vulnerable migrants will be met with a response,” he emphasized.
We remind you that on November 16, Finland decided to stop the work of four of the nine border checkpoints at Vaalimaa, Nuijamaa, Imatra and Nirala, and from November 18 they are closed to traffic.
This is a response to a significant increase in refugees and asylum seekers arriving from the territory of the Russian Federation. Applications from migrants for asylum began to be accepted only at the borders of Vartius and Salla.
According to media reports, Finland on the evening of Wednesday, November 22, is ready to close the remaining checkpoints that still operate on the border of the Russian Federation.
