Pushkov commented on the messages about "plans" of the Soviet Union to give Karelia

Senator Alexei Pushkov was not surprised by reports of "plans" of the Soviet Union to give Finland Karelia.

Earlier, the former expert of the Ministry of foreign Affairs of Finland Jukka Seppinen said that in the days of Mikhail Gorbachev's Moscow was allegedly ready to discuss the issue, but President Mauno Koivisto has not used this opportunity.

Pushkov considered such a scenario "highly likely."

Commenting on the statement Seppinen, who in those years held the post of Deputy foreign Minister Andrei Fyodorov said earlier that at the official level, this issue is not raised. Head of press-service "Gorbachev-Fund" Pavel Palazhchenko also said claims of "plans" for the transmission of Karelia lies.
