The number of Russian spies is higher than the number during the Cold War. Most spies work in the area of Helsingfors. About 30 are with civil espionage and about 20 with military information. Most spies are diplomats while others work as journalists, businessmen or students. Finland has sharpened its attitude toward espionage. People caught with intelligence information are denied entry into Finland.
