Ukraine Combat Triggers More Finnish Defense Surveillance

Finland is stepping up its military surveillance in response to the worsening conflict in Ukraine, according to the nation’s chief of defense.

“Finland’s security-policy environment has changed,” General Jarmo Lindberg, Commander of the Finnish Defense Forces, said in an interview in Helsinki. The country will raise its alert level if it sees “a clear signal” of activity targeted at Finland; as of now, “the threat toward Finland hasn’t increased,” he said.
