Amid ludicrous fears of a Russian threat which is being trumpeted across Europe, the Finnish government has voiced plans to block foreigners from acquiring property in "sensitive" areas. The reason? Sneaky Russians that are buying up Finnish land to accommodate troops for a future invasion.
A number of real estate transactions by non-residents would be canceled due to national security concerns, Finnish Defense Ministry announced. This move is a follow-up to last year's intelligence report, according to which foreigners, specifically Russians, were buying up property in "strategic" areas to use them later in a potential crisis situation.
