From Voice of Russia here (found it on the Portuguese version of the site), referencing a report from the Finnish YLE:
According to the television agency YLE, Finnish police on the Russian border are beginning to learn the language of their neighbors. There are 40 policemen in the courses, which represents 20% of the personnel of the Police Department of South Karelia. The interest in the Russian language has obviously been caused by the influx of tourists, and may prove helpful in extending into local rescue services.
