Finnish farmers in massive protest over financial woes, russian sanctions

enduring delays in EU's farm subsidy payments and a complete halt in exports to key market Russia due to EU's sanctions.

Finland and the EU blindly following the lead of the US regarding sanctions against Russia is coming back to bite them.

This is all Putin's fault.
