Also, a new landowner may construct buildings that can be used by an alien power during the invasion.

"For cutting the transport routes or unmarked troops deployment, for instance", the document claims.

In particular, Russia annexed Ukrainian Crimea by using its unmarked special forces, known as "little green men" or 'the polite people'. 

The number of foreign agents in Finland is among the highest in the West. Russians with dual citizenship are particularly under suspect.
