Russian aggression against Ukraine threatens Finland and exposes hypocrisy

by , under Migrant Tales

It finally happened. Russia launched a full-scale invasion of a sovereign country like Ukraine. Apart from former President Donald Trump, who admires Vladimir Putin like many of the far-right Republicans, in Europe, we have racists and populists who are rooting for Russian aggression openly and silently.

Caught with their hypocrisy and political pants down, populist parties like the Perussuomalaiset, and even conservative ones like the National Coalition Party (Kokoomus), are now quiet about building a fence on our border with Russia to keep out asylum seekers.

What will we do if tens of thousands of Ukrainians seek asylum in Finland?

Should we suspend temporarily their right to seek asylum?

Just asking.
