Some 30 mercenaries from Finland have participated in Donbas conflict since 2014, fighting against the Ukrainian military. It appears that according to Finnish law, participation in foreign conflicts is not considered illlegal, so these people did not face any criminal prosecution, writes Yle.
Unlike other countries, Finland does not prosecute participation in foreign armed conflicts; however, there is criminal responsibility for war crimes. Reporters claimed they had turned to local governmental agencies for explanations but "it seems no one investigates whether Finnish mercenaries could be involved in crimes in Donbas".
"All U.S. endeavors to help Ukraine lead it to the abyss", he said, remembering "how the American affair ended up in Afghanistan".
"Let's see whether Ukrainians will have to cling to American planes and helicopters that leave. And when the time comes, these assistants and counselors will be there no more", Kartapolov said.
