The Battle of Töölö

This morning from the bus to work I saw a Finnish Army APC with crew in full battle dress rushing at some speed into Töölö, one of Helsinki's more salubrious down town residential neighbourhoods. Having lived for six months in Töölö once - in an overpriced, undersized, noisy, dim flat and daily, on the way to work, having to dodge the rude, snobby, old ladies (who seem to form a significant part of Töölö's population) walking stupid little yappy dogs on those extendible leads designed to trip you over, I can only conclude that if the Russians have invaded Töölö, they are welcome to it.
