Already in January 2015 the Finnish president stated that authorities should respond fast if misinformation is being spread about Finland.

Finland is now countering Russian propaganda with a special group of experts working in different ministries.

The group will come together twice a month or when needed. The aim is to respond to misinformation.

Russia is engaging in information war with former Soviet states but they are also trying to affect Finland according to head of communications of government, Markku Mantila.
