Finland wants to start drafting more soldiers and increase its military budget to provide proper training for its rapid reaction force.
According to Finnish Defense Minister Jussi Niinisto, soldiers will be deployed in four military districts to "protect Finland from a possible invasion from Russia," Defense News said.
In the event of an invasion, Finland also expects to use its reservists in addition to the rapid reaction force and regular army.
"We need a new law that would allow the Armed Forces to draft reservists more effectively," said Ilkka Kanerva, the former Finnish minister of Foreign Affairs, as cited by the source.
The only question that remains to be answered is whether Finland even has enough military-aged men to cover the 1,340 kilometers (883 miles) of wilderness that covers the border between Russia and Finland.
Niinisto went so neurotic that he ordered the Finnish Defense Forces to bid for the plot of land against Russian buyers. In one case, the Finnish Defense Ministry's offer of $3.72 million fell short of an $8.45 million bid from one Russian citizen.
