    Background: Mr. Mikoyan, Soviet first Deputy Prime Minister, arrived at Helsinki from Moscow in a Russian IL-18 turboprop airliner on the morning of October 22.

    He was a accompanied by the Finnish Ambassador in Moscow, Mr. Vuori, and was greeted at the airport by Prime Minister Sukselainen.

    Later in the day he was to be present at the signing of the Soviet-Sinnish trade agreement for 1961-65 - an event of particular political interest in view of the possibility that Finland may join the Outer Seven free trade area project.

    Mr. Mikoyan's arrival marked the opening of an unofficial "Russian Week" in Finland. Tomorrow, Oct. 23, Mr. Mikoyan is to open a Russian trade fair, and during his week's stay in Finland will visit industrial areas.

    Space flight and atomic energy are the keynotes of the trade fair -among the 2,000 exhibits there will be replicas of sputniks, and models of the atomic icebreaker Lenin and of the Ural atomic power plant. During his visit, Mr. Mikoyan is to attend the launching of an icebreaker built for the Soviet Union. The Soviet Foreign Trade Minister, Mr. Patolichev, is also on a visit to Finland.
