Finish authorities say traffic at border crossings between the Finland-Russia border is rising noticeably following Russian President Vladimir Putin's order for a partial military mobilization.

The move comes as Russian troops see more losses and less advancement than planned in its invasion of Ukraine.

Finland's government is now considering barring "most Russians" from entering the country, Reuters reported.

Vehicle traffic from within Russia, crossing into Finland along the country's eastern border, has "intensified," according to authorities in Finland.
