The transport plane of the Defense Forces arrived at Helsinki-Vantaa from Poland on Wednesday. The Office of the President of the Republic has not said whether Sauli Niinistö was on the plane.
The gray transport plane of the Defense Forces arrived at Helsinki-Vantaa Airport on Wednesday. The plane that took off from Rzeszów, Poland, landed in Finland at half past one.
The plane’s route and schedule would indicate that the president of the republic Sauli Niinistö arrived in Finland on that plane. In the morning, Niinistö told Twitter about the end of his visit to Ukraine.
The Office of the President of the Republic did not inform about the return plans and did not confirm that the flight in question carried Niinistö. The police convoy left the airport through the back gate after the transport plane arrived.
Iltalehti was there to cover the arrival of the plane. The air was foggy and gray like the plane.
The office of the President of the Republic communicated to Iltalehti that commenting is unfortunately not possible.
“We will meet”
Niinistö made a surprise visit to Ukraine on Tuesday.
During his visit, Niinistö met the President of Ukraine to Volodymyr Zelensky. He also visited Borodjanka and Butcha in the Kyiv region.
In particular, Butša is known for the war crimes that the Russian army committed in the area when it occupied it last spring. Niinistö also met soldiers of the local regional defense forces.
Niinistö also gave a lecture at Taras Shevchenko University in Kyiv. A large group of young women and men listened to Niinistö and asked him questions. A large part of the audience was dressed in country clothes.
Niinistö said that he had discussed peace with Zelenskyi. Niinistö hoped to return to Ukraine in the name of reconstruction.
– We will meet as free brothers. You have many brothers and sisters all over Europe, Niinistö told the students.
