Sauli Niinistö: Putin put everything at stake. It's not just a war between soldiers
Finnish President Sauli Niinistö said that Russian President Vladimir Putin "put everything on the line" in the war against Ukraine.
In an interview with the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter, the head of Finland warned of a change in Russia's military strategy in Ukraine, YLE reports. "This is not just a war between soldiers. This is a war against Ukrainian society, infrastructure, and ordinary people. Putin played poker and staked everything," Niinistö said.
The President of Finland has described a grim picture of the current military situation. According to the Finnish president, the situation is much worse than one could have imagined a year ago.
“At first, it seemed that Putin made a big mistake in assuming it was enough just to threaten Ukraine. But everything that has happened, especially in recent months, speaks differently,” Niinistö said.
