finnish government is starting to understand the need to have armed and at least mildly trained citizens

in WWII a single farmer/ sniper & soldier with a submachine gun and a bolt action rifle killed well over 600 russian soldiers in under 100 days, he was NOT alone in damaging the russians but he was exceptionally lethal

He used a Finnish-produced M/28-30 (a variant of the Mosin–Nagant rifle) and a Suomi KP/-31 submachine gun.

the finnish government is potentially facing a new russian invasion, so they look back on what worked in the past ...
and realize that having a well armed civilian population is a huge deterrent to any invasion.
as admiral yamato stated
“We can never invade America,

Japanese Admiral Yamamoto has been quoted as saying. Yamamoto,
who attended college in America, explained his logic this way:
There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.”
