Finland, Estonia and Hungary are pushing Russia's Finno-Ugric peoples to separate from Russia

Summary of Disinformation

Finland, Estonia and Hungary are pushing Russia’s Finno-Ugric peoples to political independence and, ideally, to separate from Russia. The countries are influencing cultural and scientific elites of Russia’s Finno-Ugric republics, using missionaries’ work, and inviting people to study abroad.




Recurring disinformation, no evidence given. The described activities are part of cultural and people-to-people cooperation that has nothing to do with separatism.
