A record number of people in Finland's army reserve have switched civilian service this year following the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

“The size of Finland’s reserve is around 900,000 people, so this is a small number. It must also be remembered that those who are required to complete supplementary service are given a very good week-long training. Thanks to it, they get the skills to act in everyday crises and are also assigned to various tasks in exceptional circumstances,” he said.

The Russian invasion has also caused a spike in voluntary reserve trainings in Finland. I wonder how these effects cancel out?
