Finns originated from Finno-Ugric, Russia's Ural peoples. " The original home of the Finno-Ugric peoples is generally believed to be west of the Ural Mountains, in the area of Udmurtia, Perm, Mordva and Mari-El. By 3000 BC, the Baltic-Finnic groups had migrated west to the shores of the Baltic Sea."
the same race as the slavs both of the groups are Indo Europeans. They have indo-iranian influences
The part of Russia called Karelia is Nordic, and most of the population is of Scandinavian (specifically Finnish) ancestry: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karelia Most of the population of "European Russia" (west of the Urals) is Slavic. Some of the Russian population close to the Baltic is Turkic.
