Disproof

A "documentary" repeats at least ten lies about the Winter War and Finnish-Russian relations.

The defensive fortification line known as a Mannerheim line was constructed in 1920-1924 and 1932-1940. Germans did not participate in planning or constructing the fortification line.

Debunked by the newspaper Ilta-Sanomat.
