Hello to all :D; a little on this......................

The Peace Treaty.

Seeing no hope of carrying the war to a successful conclusion, nor of gaining any better terms of peace, the Finnish delegates at Moscow signed the peace treaty 13 March. The pact was ratified by the Finnish Parliament on the 15th, and President Kallio formally approved the ratification the following day.

As stated by President Kallio in a radio address on the 13th, the terms of the treaty were "unexpectedly severe compared with what the enemy; has so far succeeded in achieving by war. They also exceed the demands presented by the Soviet Government last autumn in the name of the increased security of Leningrad."

Terms of the Pact (13 March 1940).

In the Southeast.

1. Finland cedes to the U.S.S.R. the entire Karelian Isthmus, Viipuri, the islands in Viipuri Bay, Lake Ladoga and its shores, and a triangle north of Lake Ladoga (9.650 square miles).

In the Southwest.

2. Finland leases to the U.S.S.R. at $120.000 per year for a period of 30 years, the Hango Peninsula and the waters and Gulf of Finland islands around the peninsula.

In North Central Finland.

3. Finland cedes a large sector of territory around Kuolajarvi and agrees to extend, by joint efforts with the U .S.S.R., the railroad from Kemijarvi to Kandalaksha on the White Sea.

In the Artic Zone.

4. Finland cedes her territory on the Ribachi Peninsula in the Arctic, and grants free transit of Russian goods, citizens and non-military planes across the Petsamo corridor.

Thus the Soviet-Finnish War, in addition to rendering the little Finnish republic impotent in the matter of defense and setting her back seriously from an industrial point of view, will have its effects also on the Scandinavian countries and on the entire Baltic region.
