The Kremlin on Monday denied involvement in the Finnish GPS disturbance.

"It is possible that Russian Federation has been the disrupting party in this", Sipila told public broadcaster Yle according to Reuters. "Russian Federation is known to possess such capabilities", Sipila told public broadcaster Yle.

Sipilä said it's highly probable that Russian Federation was behind the signal blocking that occurred during military exercises. "As a rule, these accusations are baseless", he added.

The disturbances have been linked to Trident Juncture, a military exercise organised in Norway by North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.

"The message to everyone involved in the military exercise is surely that [the country] has such capabilities".

Finnish parliamentarians lined up on Friday to call for a robust response to the signal jamming, with the defence committee chair, Ilkka Kanerva telling Yle that the effect on civil aviation could have been "catastrophic".

Finland's malfunctioning Global Positioning System signal was caused by Russian Federation, and not the 50,000 troops, 10,000 combat vehicles and 250 aircraft taking part in massive Scandinavian NATO drills - at least that's what the PM thinks probably happened.
