A "kotiryssä" (literally "Home Russian") is a Soviet or Russian contact person of a politician, bureaucrat, businessman or other important person in Finland. The dozens of KGB officers working out of the Tehtaankatu embassy of the Soviet Union is now well documented.[1] The public did not know about the system until the book Tamminiemen pesänjakajat was published in 1981.[2] The kotiryssä system was closely related to Finlandization.
