Leena Hietanen

In today's #vatnik soup, I'll introduce a first female vatnik, ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ฎ Leena Hietanen. She used to be a quite prominent journalist who wrote to some of the most popular newspapers in ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ฎ. 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 ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ apologists. Hietanen HATES ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ฎ and ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ช culture and politics. Already back in 2008 she wrote a book called "Estonia's cold war", which criticized Estonian politics regarding ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ minorities.

She has refused to call the USSR's occupation of ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ช an occupation. She has also called the Estonian people "criminally stupid" on ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ฎ national TV and written a pamflet on ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ช media where she called ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ช a "fasist apartheid country".

Nowadays nobody really gives a shit about her, and she's mostly appearing on Johan Bรคckman's (whom I wrote about earlier: ) stream. Hietanen is a rabid supporter of ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ 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 ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ฎ and these people are connected with al-Qaida.
