No, he's 100% Finnish, the Finnish government just bribed HLTV to give him the Russian flag because they were too embarrassed by this bot representing Finland

If you are a finnish citizen you have to do mandatory army service for like 1.5 years. In Russia it is only like 1/5 of the people which have to do it, in the Russian army ofc.

the same as most small countries, help out in catastrophic situations, flooding, snow etc.. if countries witth big armies would want to invade none of them would be able to defend for more than a few days
2019-01-27 13:41
a country like Finland would never be able to defend itself against anybody. They'd need help from other countries either way

It wasn't an actual war, just a side mission for the Soviets, if they intended to conquer and annex it, it would have been. It's all the same about you now, you're barking while you can.

as i said, its only for a few days or even hours, im pretty sure there's a number or even a list of how long which country could survive theoretical invasion by another army. we learned in school and later on in service that we could defend us for around 2-3 days before being entirely fucked xd

It is enough of a deterrent. Sure the army would crumble against Russia very quickly but Russia would still have to endure losses in the process.

We did what you couldn't do, smacked the russkies asses back in the 40's. And yours as well after the war in Lapland. Sorry about that, it was mandated in the peace treaty. Also thanks for the panzerfausts, helped a bit against russki armor.

Also worth to note that every single country bordering Russia should absolutely have an army. If they don't, Russians will walk in. They're like fucking cockroaches, never ending pain in the ass.
2019-01-27 14:47
It's either 165, 255 or 347 days which you get to choose although if you want to specialize in something, it might be mandatory to stay the whole year.

its 6 months or 12 months. They will choose how long your service will last based on your performance and attitude.
2019-01-27 14:24
6 to 12 months, definately not 1.5 years
2019-01-27 14:55
it was either half year finnish army or 2 years russian army, ez choice. i pretty sure the finnish dudes have actually pretty good conditions in the army, cant say the same for russia.

2019-01-27 14:24
Important
2019-01-27 20:01
It's either military service or civil service. But I'd say it's an 80-20 split, plenty choose the military. Then there's people who either have a medical condition, or are fucked up in the head and are dangerous. Neither are allowed to go to the military, but aren't forced into civil service either. 100% of men have "maanpuolustusvelvollisuus" though. "A duty to protect the country" in English.

Mandatory army in Russia don't take part in all this wars, only professional one (or maybe I just don't know any examples). Mandatory one is needed to have at least some level specialists if it comes to some kind of big war with big losses, at least that's how I see it.

There is a difference, he has a Finnish parent which makes him half Finn half Russian, even tho Russia doesn't recognize dual citizenships. Those African babies have nothing related to Sweden when they will be adopted, but Waylander has and it's the difference here.

He's a fake Finn. Took off to Russia, where his other parent is from. Doesn't even speak Finnish, most likely keeps the passport in order to gain easier access travelling in Europe. Hopefully the next government makes adjustments to dual citizenship when one half is Russian. They should not be allowed any access to Finnish passports, and most certainly not be allowed a position in the army.

Finland quton 
Part of them, yes. Finland became a Grand Duchy, part of the Russian Empire after they beat the Swedes in the Finnish War 1808-09. During that time Russians moved in to trade. One of the most wealthy families in Finland nowadays is originally one of those who moved in during that time. After the Soviet Union went to even more shit and eventually collapsed, a lot of them came in as immigrants, including from the Ingria area which was taken from Finland after the Winter War. I think there was a law passed that granted everyone from that area a citizenship even though they were born in Russian territory and spoke only Russian. Nowadays they come in to work in construction or in berry farms and those kind of jobs where there's not enough native workforce to be found. Most are in for temporary stay but I'd imagine some find a way to stay in. Also the rich elite somehow finds a way to acquire Finnish passports, like the Timchenkos and Rotenbergs who bought the Helsinki Jokerit hockey team when the team moved to play in the KHL. I'd imagine there's many other businessmen who have done the same.

2019-01-27 14:53
He's only half - he has a Finnish father and a Russian mother, afaik. He moved to Russia from Kuopio when he was young and then studied in St Petersburg. I heard rumors that his parents split up and his father still lives in Finland, but I have no idea if any of that is true for sure. As far as I'm aware, he only speaks a few words of Finnish, he's not fluent. He has a HLTV account so he could probably confirm or deny all of this if he wants.
2019-01-27 15:35
how do you know that?
2019-01-27 18:22
Back in CS:S days, I was on a finnish IRC channel and some people were talking about him. So I guess I don't know really, but I don't see why someone would make this all up.
