President of the Republic of Finland Sauli Niinistö met President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin in Moscow on Tuesday 16 June. “My main concern is the current situation in Ukraine. I am particularly worried about the lack of progress in the implementation of the Minsk Agreement,” President Niinistö said. He believes the situation has had a grave impact on the relationship between Russia and the European Union.
“What does Finland need in order to overcome its current challenges? Commitment. The stronger the commitment of individual Finns to their undertakings, the better we will fare as a nation,” said President Sauli Niinistö as he closed the third Kultaranta Talks. Commitment also means a commitment to the community, “whatever way suits one best” said the President.
