“The presidents had a detailed exchange of opinions regarding European security in the context of recent Russian-US talks in Geneva, as well as meetings within the framework of the Russia-NATO Council and the OSCE Permanent Council.”

“Vladimir Putin informed Sauli Niinistö about Russia’s fundamental approaches in great detail, noting that Moscow was expecting a specific, in-depth written response to draft documents on providing legally binding security guarantees to the Russian Federation, as promised by its partners. The importance of complying with the principle of indivisible security, formalised by basic OSCE documents, was noted.”

“While discussing prospects for resolving the intra-Ukrainian crisis, both parties reaffirmed the importance of consistently and fully implementing the 2015 Minsk Package of Measures, the only basic document for resolving the crisis. The President of Russia noted that Kiev still refused to fulfil its obligations under the Minsk Agreements, including launching direct dialogue with Donetsk and Lugansk and formalising the special status of Donbass in the constitution.”

“The leaders exchanged congratulations on the 30th anniversary of signing the Russian-Finnish Treaty on the Basis for Relations that ushered in a new stage of Russian-Finnish interaction.”
