Here is a good video from France24 with Mr. Niinistö talking with Catherine Nicholson. French President Emmanuel Macron visited Finland this week.
Mr. Niinistö discussed ties with Moscow, the Helsinki summit between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin in July, and Finland’s stance on NATO. During the interview the Finland’s president told France 24 he remains committed to the sanctions against Moscow: “The sanctions are because of what has been happening in Ukraine, and before that is corrected, sanctions do stay”.
