Press release

At its evening session on 28 September, the Government discussed the current foreign and security policy situation and the measures needed to address it.

Tomorrow, on Thursday 29 September, the Government will adopt a resolution that will significantly restrict the right of Russian citizens to enter Finland as tourists and to use Finland as a transit country when travelling to other parts of the Schengen area, as described in more detail in the resolution. In addition, the Government received a briefing on ways to enhance control at the border between Finland and Russia using a border fence.

The Government is monitoring the situation and will meet to discuss the matter again later this week.
