Re: Russia’s continued occupation of Finnish territory

On behalf of those 450,000 Finns who had to leave their homes when the Soviet Union occupied Finnish Karelia and the Petsamo areas in 1944, I petition you as my representative in Congress to look at this matter to determine what can be done diplomatically by the United States to correct this injustice.

I learned about this injustice while attending a lecture at the National World War-II Museum (the former National D-day Museum) here in New Orleans.

In 1941, the Soviet Union invaded Finland. This was done utterly without provocation.

Nonetheless, at the end of the Finnish - Russian war in 1944, over 450,000 Finns were evicted from their homes and the Soviets have occupied part of Finland ever since. This is in violation of the ATLANTIC CHARTER, signed by 30 countries, including the Soviet Union and the United States, according to which the occupation of another country's land areas is prohibited.

This occupied Finnish territory consists of 6,177,751 acres of the Karelia and Petsamo regions, which include Finland's second largest city, VIIPURI, and also Finland's only year-round arctic harbor, PETSAMO. It should be noted that the territory at issue, which Finland had well developed agriculturally and industrially, has been grossly under-utilized since it was invaded and occupied by the Soviets in 1944.

The Soviets have no right to the land, which has historically been Finnish for thousands of years. Since the fall of the Soviet Union, the area has been occupied as part of the country of Russia. The Finns trusted that the ATLANTIC CHARTER, signed by the United States and the Soviet Union, would be recognized.



This may be an opportune time, when Russia approaches the western organizations like the World Trade Organization, to try to correct this injustice. This would help Finland now when we can benefit from the support of all our allies.
