Half of Citizens of Finland are Uptight about Visa Abolition for Russians

 Half of the citizens of Finland give no credence to the need of visa abolition for Russians.

      They tend to think that visas should be cancelled either after 2018, or never at all.  Such is the result of the poll carried out by the largest newspaper of Finland.

      Two out of five respondents would cancel the visa regime within five next years. One sixth part of the respondents supported immediate cancellation of visas for Russians.

      The answers turned to be non-uniform in different age categories. The younger was the respondent, the more he or she was supporting simplification of border formalities, the Yle reports.

      The majority of the Finns are sure that the visa-free regime will increase not only the inflow of tourists, but crime rates as well. These are aged people who mostly beware of the rise in crime. Half of the respondents, however, believe that visa abolition will prompt new job opportunities to appear.
