Puppet regimes[edit]

" Soviet puppet regimes were installed; and within two months Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania were incorporated as Soviet republics within the Soviet Union" is blatantly POV-pushing. These so-called "puppet regimes" were Baltic citizens which sympathised with the Soviet-Union. A fact which Baltic nationalists do not want to see. Otto (talk) 09:05, 2 May 2016 (UTC)

Which were put into office by 'elections' where only certain minded candidates were eligible to be elected and which were held while the countries were under military occupation by the USSR. So that is not POV pushing. Additional information for you: Sovietization of the Baltic states, People's Parliament. Only part that is POV pushing is the attempt to pass the Soviet occupation and annexation of the Baltic states as something else than what it in reality was. - Wanderer602 (talk) 09:21, 2 May 2016 (UTC)
Most of your rhetoric has nothing to do with the pejorative POV "puppet regime". What is relevant from your words is that these eligible candidates were "certain minded". That their political ambitions didn't fit your POV doesn't make them puppets. I should rather say that you are a puppet of your own prejudices. Your hostility towards soviet sympathisers makes you jeopardise this article. Otto (talk) 10:17, 2 May 2016 (UTC)
You clearly didn't bother to read the articles i linked to, you might want to do so now. Given that the so called elections were held under the gun barrels of the Red Army and that only communist candidates were even allowed there really is no other way of describing the governments the Soviets installed there as anything else than puppet regimes. Their political views actually do really matter since they were set to power while the countries in question were under Soviet military occupation - which in fact defines them as puppet governments. If you do not like the articles i linked how about these: [1], [2] or [3] - via google books. - Wanderer602 (talk) 10:59, 2 May 2016 (UTC)
Otto, pleas learn and return to discuss.
Please don't attack other editors (I should rather say that you are a puppet of your own prejudices). Xx236 (talk) 07:25, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

Soviet bombs[edit]

According to Mark Solomin the Soviets bombed Finland preparing an invasion. The 10th Mechanized Corps (Soviet Union) was transported to the Finish border, near Imatra, which the linked article ignores.Xx236 (talk) 07:47, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

Well, the fact is that the Soviets did bomb Finland after 25 June 1941. If it was planned to be followed with an invasion is another story. Most if not all of the initial clashes along the border are ignored in the article. For example the clashes that occurred near Imatra and Enso (Svetogorsk) between 28 June and 4 July are not mentioned at all. - Wanderer602 (talk) 15:35, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

Changes to the POW section[edit]

I had several issues with the addition made to the page so i reverted it. Mainly it was rather oddly cited, and edited (i.e. not formatted for wikipedia). Another rather important part was that i couldn't find sections corresponding to the posted text from the article that was referenced. It seems to me that it would be best to address those issues prior to inserting the section to the article. - Wanderer602 (talk) 10:58, 13 May 2016 (UTC)

Secondly there already exists article about the POWs so it might be better to have the relevant portions of the text included to that article - Soviet prisoners of war in Finland - Wanderer602 (talk) 11:00, 13 May 2016 (UTC)
