Approximately 900.000 letters have been sent to reservists by the Finnish army, amid the increasingly tense situation with neighboring Russia (they share a 1.300km border). Moreover, Finland and Sweden followed Iceland, Norway and Denmark in a joint statement, citing Russia’s actions as a motive to boost military cooperation.

Compared to 2014, Finland’s military budget has decreased by 0.11 percent of the country’s GDP.

The letters sent informed the reservists that in a crisis situation they would have to play a role in the army.

Finland’s active army measures 16.000, but in a crisis situation they could gather a force of 230.000 men and women.
