As of July 1, travellers can only bring in 200 cigarettes, 50 cigars, 100 cigarillos, and 250 grams of loose tobacco that do not have health warnings in Finnish and Swedish.



In practice, these restrictions will only change customs measures within the European Union, because there are other import restrictions already in place for tobacco brought in from outside the EU.



The tobacco products are also required to list the amount of tar, nicotine, and carbon monoxide they contain.

Thursday's papers: What will Russia do next? Child safety checks ignored, and the Finnish economy's "lost year"

The poignant scenes of the return to Holland of the bodies of the victims of flight MH-17 dominate Finland's press this morning. Alongside the reports on the latest diplomatic moves to try and secure Russian co-operation over the Ukraine crisis, some papers take a moment to revisit Finland's recent run-ins with its eastern neighbour, and explore the worst-case scenario should Russia's economy crash. Elsewhere, papers reveal a widespread lack of background checks on those working with children, and an overview of Finland's economic outlook makes bleak reading.
