Pre-schizophrenic condition of Finns might lead into a military conflict with Russia

Summary of Disinformation

Finnish border guards mistook a Russian yacht for a sea monster. Hysteria around the image of Russia as an enemy has led the Finnish border guard into a pre-schizophrenic condition.

Finns are panicking and this might lead into a military conflict with Russia.

This is part of Scandinavian media’s campaign to turn the public opinion positive to joining NATO.

Disproof

Distorted spin of a tweet by Finnish Coast Guard. The tweet was a joke about a "three-headed sea monster" spotted by the coast guard. As an evidence, the image of the yacht was attached to the post.  Debunk by Aki Heikkinen.
