Kaskeala: Finnish Military Too Big, Poorly Equipped

Admiral Juhani Kaskeala, Commander of the Finnish Defence Forces, warns that the country's defence is weakened by a military with too many soldiers and not enough resources. "The credibility of the armed forces does not rest solely on quantity, because insufficiently equipped and trained forces do not constitute an effective preventative defence," Kaskeala told a Defence Forces anniversary gathering in Mikkeli on Thursday.
