Ambassador Alpo Rusi has emailed me a 16-page document in German which, he insists, completely clears his name (he was famously accused of being a Stasi spy). He asks me to disseminate it freely to any German-speaking friends who are interested in Finnish politics. I suspect this is a fairly small section of my friends-list, but if you are interested post below and I’ll email it to you. It’s quite an interesting read of how the East German spy network in Helsinki actually functioned.
