NOVO-OGARYOVO, January 17 (Itar-Tass) —— Finnish President Tarja Halonen, whose second term of office is ending, may soon buy real estate in Russia. She accepted the offer at a Tuesday meeting with Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.
“You said that many Finns wished to buy real estate in Russia. You may set an example,” the premier said. “Agreed,” Halonen replied.
The Finnish president said that not only officials of Finland and Russia had been meeting frequently in the eleven years of her office. In her words, the border had been crossed more than ten million times. That was an important achievement, bearing in mind the Finnish population of slightly more than five million, she said.
More than 80% of Russians [visiting Finland] have multi-entry visas. They come to Finland to do some shopping and buy real estate. Presumably, say that Finns also gladly buy real estate in Russia, Halonen said.
