Russian Unpredictability & Finland's Border Threat | Alexander Stubb | GZERO World

Finland isn't taking its eastern neighbor for granted. Yes, that means you, Russia.

Indeed, the Finns don't one of Europe's largest standing armies to defend themselves against Sweden, former PM Alexander Stubb tells Ian Bremmer on GZERO World, on the ground in Davos.

“If you have a 1,340-kilometer border with Russia, you always have be concerned because, as we can see, Russia is quite unpredictable,” he explains.

As a neighbor with many friends across the border, Stubb regrets that he's looking at years, if not decades, of Russian isolation, which he regards as "a sad reality, but a reality nevertheless.”
