Finland's Soviet War Debt
    The demands Russia made on Finland after the war were outrageous - and they had to be paid in eight years. Here are two of the 589 narrow gauge locomotives manufactured by Tampella (of Tampere) and Locomo, bound for the Soviet Union. (What, they want payment and Karelia too?) This payment was just a slap, the real loss was Karelia itself, the price of which would be astronomical, in fact priceless. The Russians may have been given as many as 60 000 saunas. Finland is exploring peaceful solutions to repatriation of Karelia. There would be benefits to both sides


    Here is a partial list of manufactured goods (US$300,000,000 - actual value was close to US$570,000,0000 - discrepancy due to pricing basis used) sent to the Soviet Union:
