There exist only two finnic countries at the moment, Finland and Estonia. By finnic I mostly mean baltic finns, but I count the sami people in.
The finnic people need an union to promote our cultural and historical unity. It wouldn't be a nation, but an area that would allow economic and cultural exchange within the cultural borders of said union.
Ideas for a Finnic Union?
I think it's a geographical necessity. If the other fenno-ugric people would right next door, this would be a proposition for a fenno-ugric union instead.
Our history has also been more harmonous with the sami than with karelians, so I say they are cool
I would agree except besides karelians, groups like the veps and the votes and the izhorians and the livvi are pretty much extinct and their areas have too much proofs-people and even their ethnic people have too much proofs-blood for it to ever work
That is exactly what the union would try to prevent: the disappearence of finnic cultures
The Livonian Coast in Latvia would be a prominent part of the union, for the last Livs live there
West Vepsians are doing whatnot okay, but yeah, izhorians and votes might not be saved even with artificial respiration
Ingrians in russia are in a sticky situation too
