Sounds like the two-faced Finns. When Russia was the Soviet Union, the Fins used to sneak into Russia to get free medical care. Now that an old woman wants to be near her daughter in her old age. the fins get ugly and refuse to help an old lady for her race. What a bunch of two-faced yahoos the finns are.

Finnish & Russian Love-Hate Relationship
Stefania you are so right.
Finns generally dislike foreigners, including Swedes, but hate Russians.
However, if not for Russian visitors to Eastern Finland cities like Lappeenranta and Hamina, the shops would be bankrupt.
In 1980's it was a known fact that Stockmann Departmental Store had security staff at their doors which prevented more than 10 Soviets enter the store at a time. Today, Russians are their best customers in Helsinki and in their outlets in Russia.
Double Faced? Starts from Finland.
