The paper outlines that the occupation policy of the Finnish military administration on the territory of the Soviet Karelia in 1941-1944 was based on the idea of dividing the residents on the Finno-Ugric population (indigenous) with the number of privileges and non-Finno-Ugric one (not indigenous) which was deprived of any privileges. Moreover, half of the non-native population (Russians, most of all) was settled in the concentration (emigrant) camps. The paper covers the means of the ideological influence on the native population of Karelia (Karelians, Finns, Ingermanlands, Vepsians) who was considered to be the future residents of the «Great Finland».
