Russian Western Military District special forces paratrooper unit has recently landed on the isle of Gogland, Gulf of Finland, just a hundred kilometers from Helsinki, the Finnish capital where a Summit of U.S. and Russian presidents, Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, will take place.

"Russian Western Military District special forces paradropped to an unprepared spot in isle of Gogland (Suursaari), Gulf of Finland. After touchdown, hid parachutes and proceeded to destroy targets before heli extracted from ad hoc site," Finnish activist Aki Heikkinen wrote on Twitter.

"Just to clear things up for people not familiar with the area: Gogland was taken by Soviet Union in 1944, it's part of Russia. Only like 40km from city of Kotka, Finland," he added.
