Finland involves police in security measures on the border with Russia

Dec 5, 2023

Finnish police officers have joined the protection of the country's border with Russia, which is currently completely closed due to Russia's hybrid operation using migrants.

This is reported by Yle.

The Finnish Border Guard asked law enforcement officers for support in securing the eastern border, which stretches for more than 1,200 kilometers.


It is not reported how many police officers have been deployed to guard the border under the leadership of the Border Guard Service.

"I will not disclose specific figures because this is operational information. But these resources are sufficient, and if the need arises, they can be further increased," said police spokesman Marko Heikkilä.

He also confirmed that such requests from border guards are extremely rare.
