Writes Helsingin Sanomat, for this deal to Finns Soviet Union “has not paid a penny” – thought so that Finland fought against the Soviet Union, have left the country-to the winner even more.
Helsingin Sanomat (the newspaper was published in 1947) said that the then President of Finland Juho Paasikivi was very unhappy with this deal, calling it in his diaries “excessive”. But this is still a private opinion.
