Last year, no more than 42 per cent of the people surveyed expressed their Russia-related concerns.

Currently, 63 per cent of Finns are of the opinion that the actions of Russia have already had a negative effect on the security situation in Finland. Although the actions of Russia in Ukraine and its strained relationship with the European Union are evident in the results in a number of ways, up to 58 per cent of respondents stated their continuing support for military non-alignment.
