The Finnish Parliament passed a law on the construction of a high wall on the border with Russia, which would prevent the entry of migrants, as well as to avoid various provocations. The Guardian writes about this.

Helsinki fears that Moscow may use migration to exert political pressure on the country. It is assumed that the length of the border barriers on the eastern border of the country will be 1300 km.

"The purpose of the new law — improve the operational capabilities of border guards in response to hybrid threats. The war in Ukraine has made this issue urgent", — said Anne Ihanus, a senior adviser at the Home Office.

The new law also allows for the closure of border crossings and the concentration of asylum seekers at certain points in the event of a large-scale attempt to cross the border.

B At present, Finland's borders are protected mainly by light wooden fences designed to prevent livestock roaming.
