Finnish journalist Jessikka Aro made a major journalistic investigation of the Russian propaganda machine in Finland. She paid a heavy price for it – she was slandered threatened systematically for years and finally had to flee abroad for her own safety.

”A brave and forceful attempt in the time of the ongoing information warfare
to make the invisible culprits visible.”
– László Kúnos, Director, Corvina Kiado, Hungary

”The extraordinary story of Finnish journalist Jessika Aro is a prime example of a great personal courage and journalist’s dedication face to face new types of threats at the time of an actual hybrid information conflict. The book represents important evidence in the recent debates about the risks we underestimate or even don’t realize.”
– Ján Simkanič, Director, Denik N, Czech Republic

The courageous book by award-winning journalist Jessikka Aro was published in September 2019 and has already sold over 17 000 copies in Finland.

 

WILD EAST is the untold story Finnish Kindred Nation Wars in the aftermath of the World War I in North-Eastern Europe – and the fierce events of the year 1919.

The book has been praised for its realism and shocking impression on the reader:

“The work brings new, dark tones to the mythical picture of the Finnish Kindred Nation Wars and the construction of the Greater Finland. It positions the wars in the great power game of the early 1920s and in the ideological continuity between the World Wars. A dramatic story of the actions, motives and destinies of individual people reveals how war breaks people’s bodies and minds.”
‒ Finlandia Nonfiction Award jury 2019

We are glad to announce that Romanian Lebada Neagra joins Estonian Rahva Raamat and Swedish Lind & Co and Finnish Tammi in the list of WILD EAST publishers!

Jessikka Aro


Jessikka Aro (born 1980) is a Finnish journalist working for Finland’s public service broadcaster Yle. In September 2014, she began to investigate pro-Russian Internet trolls, but became a victim of their activities herself.

In 2019 she was notified that she was to receive an International Women of Courage Award but this was mysteriously rescinded just before the ceremony.
