    Actually quite nice to hear Niinistö’s ”should I start?” in the beginning ☺️

    Reminds us even during these dark times that these two leaders are just humans in the end!

      @Cass It’s claimed he said that, not sure that would stand up in court. Looks like Starmer may have broken the law too. The birthday cake meeting really is a nonsense Issue to be honest. If labour had any decent policies they would be in power……

      Congratulations, I am from Ukraine, we are at war with Russia. As a result of hostilities, many wounded and homeless people, still shortage with products, medicines. I ask you for help.

      @JeanJean That would have brought NATO into the war, and there was no security pact expressing explicit military support was in place with the Ukraine. This security partnership with Finland explicitly states the UK will come to Finlands aid.
