Juha Korhonen

Welcome back to Finnish #vatnik's! Today I'll be introducing a "gentleman" who goes by the name of Juha Korhonen (.@Juha_Korh2). His main contributions for the Finnish disinformation scene are two websites:

1) MV-media (currently UMV-lehti), where he acted as an editor-in-chief during 2018-2019, and 2) Tokentube, a Youtube alternative that mostly consists of videos about conspiracy theories such as the Great Reset and WEF. 2/8 Janus Putkonen (left) and J...
