There is an opinion that the "Continuation War" was begun by Soviet bombing of Finnish airfields on June 25, 1941, and that Finland could have remained neutral if the Soviet government did not performed this attack. I could call this opinion propagandistic, but some people are so vulnerable that I shall rather use the word "disputable". I would like to give some evidence supporting the idea that Finland could not and did not want to remain neutral, and as a matter of fact never was neutral in this conflict. 1) German airplanes used Finnish airfields as bases for their flights towards Leningrad before June 25. 2) On June 22 Hitler in his speech told Germans were fighting together with "heroic Finnish brothers in arms". He also rejected the idea of embassy exchange on the Western borders of the USSR, because "Finland and Romania were to attack Soviet Russia". 3) German troops were distributed in Northern Finland: "Norway" mountain infantry corps was preparing to attack Murmansk and the 36th infantry corps was to advance towards Kandalaksha. 4) On June 21 three Finnish submarines mined Estonian coast. 5) On June 22 the Finnish headquarters ordered the troops to be ready to an offensive on June 28. 6) On June 21 Finnish army invaded demilitarized Aland Islands (5000 soldiers with 69 artillery guns). The staff of the Soviet consulate was arrested. 7) On June 14-18 more than 40 German warships arrived to Finnish ports. 8) Finnish army of 475 000 was mobilized to June 20. To me, these facts say that Finland never planned to remain neutral, and the questions were not "begin or not to begin", but "when" and "how" to begin a war.
