Finnish leaders today declared the creation of the Finnish People's Army, or Suomen Kansan Armeija. The total size of this army is rumored to be set at over 300,000 full-time soldiers, while every male of available age (up to 50-60 years of age) will be conscripted and placed in reserve. Finnish defense officials also state the over three thousand armored vehicles will be commissioned and 60 operable aircraft will be used in the Finnish Air Force.

Finnish developments on the Manhattan Project have turned out to be false. Finnish defense officials stated today that it "is a serious setback in developing these weapons" and that Finnish scientists have been working feverishly on trying to find the correct launch payload, among other things. Minister of the Army General Teemu Äijälä said to FINN in a phone conversation that the error in research boiled down to a wrong calculation. This multiplication error, General Äijälä said, would have, instead of launching the weapon, detonated it on the launching platform.

Finland yesterday rolled out it's new Social Security program, which provides benefits for the elderly, disabled, and war veterans. Citizens and military soldiers have begun logging themselves into the system by registering their name and basic personal information, followed by being given a card with their private social security number. Chairwoman Sari Paatelainen said in a press conference today that "this program will ensure all citizens of the Peoples' Republic of Finland will never be without help".

Admiral Matti Mäki of the Finnish Revolutionary Navy today made known plans to develop a series of warships for the Finnish Navy. The Finnish Revolutionary Navy will finally be receiving two corvettes and a battleship, to protect Finnish shipping lanes and to defend Finnish waters from hostile foreign powers. Admiral Mäki said that this would help to ensure Finland's place as a regional power in Scandinavia and as a player in Europe as a whole, no matter how minor.

Following the election of Kaiju Sillanpää to position of Party Boss, Finland will be taking a new course in world politics. "I am committed to reconciling past disputes and grievances with not only Sweden, but Europe as a whole." Kaiju said today. With the Militarist and Intellectual parties gaining majority, however, Party Boss Sillanpää will no doubt have serious opposition in expanding Socialist influences in Finnish society, but will gain serious support for expanding the military from the Suomen militaristinen puolue.

[i]Rumored to be heading north[/i]

Finnish soldiers today were being called from their homes to be prepared for a DEFCON 1 situation, the first of it's kind since Operation Arctic Shield earlier in the month. Finnish defense officials are not commenting on the mobilization, but have said that it's a "matter of national security". Correspondents have been reporting the movement of military equipment northward but have not noticed an increased number of troops on any specific area.

This mobilization appears to have come with other mobilizations from Sweden and Slavorussia, Finland's regional neighbors who have reportedly begun offensive actions against the Kingdom of Cochin. While an official MDP is not in place between Slavorussia and Finland, it is unknown if Finnish troops will be joining with Slavorussia in her combat against Cochin.

After a rise in suspicion from the militarist party, independent investigations revealed that Party Boss Kaiju Sillanpää had been siphoning funds from the Finnish treasury into pockets of both fellow Marxist parliament members and friends, as well as keeping some for himself. Kaiju vehemently denies all claims, stating that "they (the militarists) are seeking to oust me from my position" adding that he believed "[that] they are simply jealous of my success".

**Statement from the Paris Commune to Finland**

Comrades,

Do not risk war with the Swedes. Their monarchy is tied with our own and in the future we may later need your help as allies. We can handle the monarchs of France and will ship the reptiles to Sweden as they deserve. A country that desires to foster snakes and devils. Your vocal support and monetary support will be enough. It is a belief that cannot fade and for that we thank you.

Simone Valentin, Party Leader of the Paris Commune

Finland is [b]not[/b] advocating the overthrowing of the Courtois government by the Suomen Kansan Armeija. Any soldiers sent to France will be in an advisory role to Commune Army soldiers, not actively engaging French Royalists alongside them. Sweden should also note that no offers of troop assistance have been offered by Finland, merely vocal and monetary support. We in Finland know we have had our differences, but this will not be a flashpoint for another invasion of Finland on our watch.

[i]Charged with embezzlement, perjury[/i]

Kaiju Sillanpää has been officially charged with embezzlement, corruption and perjury by Finnish courts today. Arrested before a second Parliament meeting on a response to French Communist resistance, Kaiju Sillanpää still denies all charges, claiming they were fabricated by opponent Keke Pölönen (Suomen militaristinen puolue). Ms. Pölönen also denies charges of fabrication, saying that she "acted to prevent the Finnish people" from being denied "the necessary funds because he (Kaiju Sillanpää) had been giving them away to friends".

[quote][size="5"]Party Boss Kaiju Sillanpää Charged With Embezzlement, Perjury[/size]
[i]Sentenced to twenty years in prison[/i]

Party Boss Kaiju Sillanpää, after a one-day trial, was charged with embezzlement, perjury and corruption under Finnish law. With an unanimous decision, Kaiju was almost immediately sentenced to twenty years without parole in prison in North Finland. This has serious repercussions for the Marxist and Communist parties in Finland, who will need to do some serious maneuvering to rid themselves of the stain left by Kaiju Sillanpää. There have been rumors of the two parties merging to create the Suomalaisia ​​työntekijöitä ja sosialistien puolueen, or Finnish Workers and Socialists Party.

Interim Party Boss Keke Pölönen has called for immediate elections.[/quote]

Finland has today cancelled the production of the FNS [i]Talvisota[/i] by Sweden, instead deciding to take the production of the ship into Helsinki shipmaker's hands. Although this will delay the production of the ship by three weeks, Party Boss Sari Paatelainen has said that matters of naval security "is not one that should be decided by foreign powers for Finland", adding that "Sweden's refusal to continue building the ship only strained relations further" and speculates that the matter could have been a flashpoint for another conflict. Admiral Matti Mäki of the Finnish Navy has stated that the completion and subsequent deployment of the battleship will be defining "should Sweden decide she does not want the FNS [i]Talvisota[/i] to patrol the Baltic in defense of Finnish interests."[/quote]
