Tuesday's papers: Shortage of immigrant daycare staff, health reforms opposition and what do Putin's yoghurts taste like?

One paper picks up on the revelation that Finnish dairy products destined for Russian shelves turn out to be free of additives, unlike the versions available for consumers in Finland.

Monday’s papers: Javelin’s golden boys, Stubb’s political party cachet, cheese hoarders and trackers for cruisers

Monday’s papers in Finland all lead with the gold medal upset by “always the bridesmaid never the bride” javelin athlete Antti Ruuskanen at the European Championships in Zurich, Switzerland Sunday. The local dailies also highlight a new political poll that shows Prime Minister Alexander Stubb’s National Coalition Party pulling away from the competition, in spite of recent criticism of the PM's seemingly glib approach to government. Putin's cheese and tracker bracelets for cruise ship passengers are also in the news.
