Summary/Abstract: Conceptualised by the German school of political studies in 1966, following a new period of crisis in the relations between East and West, the term referred to a certain type of domination of small states by the Great Powers, but, in fact, it referred to the efforts made by the URSS to gain influence in Europe by the same methods it had used in Finland. This paper explains the circumstances and the historical framework responsible for the post-war Finnish-Soviet relations, at the same time aiming at critically reassessing the significance and meaning of this concept.
