In Helsinki the book, called "Returning of Karelia" has been published. Its authors have counted up, that having returned part of the territories in Karelia, Pechenga and Salla, and also some islands of the Gulf of Finland, Finland will get colossal economic profit. This edition was sponsored by Finnish organization "Pro Karelia", after USSR disintegration it started actively talking about the return of these territories to Finland. The members of the organization believe that in case of joining, unemployment rate will decrease, the development of agriculture will get the impulse, and economic growth will accelerate. But officially Helsinki declares that territory issue can not become the topic of negotiations between Russia and Finland. But in Finland here are many people, who support the idea. Local people consider that after returning of the territories their life will be better.
