|Vatnik’s country of origin||Finland|
In today's #vatnik soup, I'll introduce a first female vatnik, 🇫🇮 Leena Hietanen. She used to be a quite prominent journalist who wrote to some of the most popular newspapers in 🇫🇮. This report is also my first attempt at adding subtitles, so please be gentle with feedback.
At some point Leena's brain circuits went haywire, and she became a berserk 🇷🇺 apologists. Hietanen HATES 🇫🇮 and 🇪🇪 culture and politics. Already back in 2008 she wrote a book called "Estonia's cold war", which criticized Estonian politics regarding 🇷🇺 minorities.
She has refused to call the USSR's occupation of 🇪🇪 an occupation. She has also called the Estonian people "criminally stupid" on 🇫🇮 national TV and written a pamflet on 🇪🇪 media where she called 🇪🇪 a "fasist apartheid country".
Nowadays nobody really gives a shit about her, and she's mostly appearing on Johan Bäckman's (whom I wrote about earlier:) stream. Hietanen is a rabid supporter of 🇷🇺 invasion of Ukraine and the so-called "Novorossiya".
Leena & Johan have established an association called "Finnish Antifascist Committee", which supports most fascist regimes around the world. This committee has for example suggested, that terrorist attacks have been planned in 🇫🇮 and these people are connected with al-Qaida.
Pinging @petite_michelle, have you heard of Leena Hietanen before?
