Finland Reacts To Russia’s Intention To Shift Border In The Baltic Sea

The statement was voiced by the head of the country's Foreign Ministry.

Finland intends to investigate the details of Russia's unilateral plans to “alter” the country's maritime borders in the Baltic Sea, according to Finland's Foreign Minister Elina Valtonen.

This has been reported by RBC-Ukraine with a reference to the Minister’s message on Twitter.

“According to media reports, Russia might revise the definitions of maritime zones in the Gulf of Finland. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is looking into the details,” she said.

The minister reminded that the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea contains provisions on the determination and revision of coastal states' maritime zones.

“We assume that Russia, as a participant in the Convention, will act accordingly. It should be noted that causing confusion is also a form of hybrid influence. Finland will not be unsettled by this,” Valtonen said.

Recently, it became known that the Russian Ministry of Defense has prepared a decree according to which Moscow will unilaterally “shift” the maritime borders with Lithuania and Finland in the Baltic Sea.
