He said he had noticed no tension at our eastern border. "We want to maintain good relations with all of our neighbors, including Russia," he told journalists, adding that he did not look upon Russia as a military threat to Finland. Moreover, in his words, Russia’s leadership is showing no intention to pose such a threat.
