Interesting...

Putler seems to be backing down from his threats against Sweden and Finland.

Vladimir Putin has appeared to climb down from Russia’s objections to Sweden and Finland joining NATO, saying Moscow had no issues with them entering the US-led military alliance they now aim to join in reaction to his invasion of Ukraine.

It could be because Putler has realized that Russia doesn't presently have the conventional combat power to threaten other neighbors.

Or, maybe, someone else has Putler's back?

In other war news..

Russian forces have likely run out of combat-ready reservists, forcing the Russian military command to amalgamate soldiers from many different elements, including private military companies and proxy militias, into ostensibly regular army units and naval infantry.

That article goes on to state that the Russians are stripping sailors from warships and sending them to the front, along with amalgamating paratroopers and mercenaries. Neither is a good sign for the Russians.

You mean time before last, last time the Reds forced the Nazi friendly Finns to concede.

What I have read about the Finns during WW11 is that they reluctantly went to the Germans not out of solidarity but because of a common enemy. The same reason Russia was an ally of the U.S. during WW 11, not due to any actual friendship between the two, but because Germany was the enemy and a more immediate threat than Russia. Of course their were and are Nazi sympathizers in all of Europe and the U.S.
