Abstract

The peculiar situation of Finland in 1917-19-suspended between its old and new dependencies (Russia and Germany), its desired sovereignty, its neutrality and involvement in the world war and, finally, the stabilisation of it relations with Western great powers after the collapse of the German Empire-is reflected in documents written by representatives of foreign countries present in Finland at this time. News from Finland concerned not only internal Finnish affairs but also the situation in Russia, especially Petrograd. This article draws from the large collection of telegrams and reports received by the United States Department of State consulate in Finland, Stockholm, Copenhagen and Christiania and from the US embassies in Russia. Exploration of these documents helps to understand the general situation prevailing in Russia after the February Revolution as well as the significance of Russian affairs for international relations with Baltic Europe in these eventful years.
