Russians take trains to Finland, one of few remaining escape routes

Russians having had enough are boarding the Allegro train in St. Petersburg to Helsinki. This route is not open for everyone, mainly Russians with connections to Finland/ Europe (dual citizenship, family, work, studies etc.), and also only open for Russian and Finnish citizens (due to Russian Covid rules). Recently they have been full when going to Helsinki, and empty when returning to St. Petersburg.
