Finland’s Helsingin Sanomat newspaper reported last Friday that the Finnish customs had detained a large shipment of weapons, which was en route to Ukraine. The incident occurred at Helsinki - Vantaa airport during a routine inspection late in June.
The cargo contained, among other things, components to missile systems. The container was on its way from Vietnam to Ukraine via Finland. It was detained because it did not have the appropriate permission.
