Åland Islands from 1809 to 1918 were part of the Russian Empire, its westernmost outpost. In the XVIII century, for 10 years, the Åland Congress was held on the islands, which led to the conclusion of the Nystadt Peace between Russia and Sweden, which put an end to the Northern War of 1700-1721.
Vladimir Putin on Anniversary of Stalingrad Battle: “Unbelievable – unbelievable, but true: we are again threatened with German Leopard tanks, on board of which there are crosses, and again they are going to fight with Russia on the soil of Ukraine with the hands of Hitler’s last descendants, the hands of Bandera.”
Annalena Baerbock’s remark reads as follows: “… yes, we must do more to protect Ukraine, yes, we must do more with regard to tanks. But the most important and decisive thing is that we do this together, and not play the game of “find the culprit” in Europe, because we are waging war against Russia, not against each other.”
