For support and trolling: the anthem of Ukraine will be played in Finnish cities on the border with the Russian Federation

Russian residents regularly come to the border cities for shopping, whom the Finns remind in various ways about war unleashed against the Ukrainians.

The authorities of the Finnish city of Lappeenranta, which is located 20 km from the Russian border, decided to play the national anthem of Ukraine daily until the end of August, writes Yle. The national anthem will be played from the roof of the Lappeenranta City Theater in the city center every evening at 19:30. The authorities also plan to illuminate the town hall building with blue and yellow colors, in addition, Ukrainian flags were hung on a flagpole in front of the city hall and in the local port.

The Finnish edition notes that in the neighboring city of Imatra, the Ukrainian anthem has been played every day since the end of July. From Imatra to the Russian border is less than 10 km, respectively, in good weather, the sounds of Mikhail Verbitsky's music can reach the border crossing.

In another Finnish city, Hamina, the Ukrainian flag has been flying over the Flag Tower since June.

What do the Finns want to pay attention to?

With the help of these actions, the Finns want to demonstrate support for the Ukrainians, as well as to remind the numerous Russian shopping tourists who come to the border towns for shopping about the war unleashed by Russia.

< p> Local journalists wondered if Finland could express its position on Russian aggression against Ukraine already at the border, for example, by raising the Ukrainian flag there. However, the border guards rejected this idea.

“The Border Guard is a state body and in this role it does not take any position on political issues,” said Päivi Kaasinen, PR manager at the Border Guard Headquarters.

At the same time, on August 3, on the side of the road leading to the Niirala border crossing, someone installed homemade signs in Russian with anti-war inscriptions. The posters encourage Russian tourists to read news in Russian on Finnish and Swedish websites.
