Efforts to reopen the Finnish-Russian border

Support the efforts to reopen the Finnish-Russian border, focusing on various petitions and a survey. Finnish citizens are urged to sign an official petition that requires government consideration if it reaches 50,000 signatures. Non-citizens can contribute by signing an unofficial petition on a Finnish website, which can influence political decisions with enough support. Additionally, an English-language petition on Change.org is available for those living outside Finland but affected by the border closure. This petition aims to demonstrate the collective impact on rights and movement. Lastly, there’s a survey by the Association of Russian Speakers in Finland for the Ministry of Justice, seeking feedback on how the border closure has impacted individuals, emphasizing the need for a humanitarian solution to maintain family connections and access essential services.
