Kissinger on Finland as an example for Ukraine

Henry Kissinger on Finland as an example for Ukraine:

Ukraine should be free to create any government compatible with the expressed will of its people. Wise Ukrainian leaders would then opt for a policy of reconciliation between the various parts of their country. Internationally, they should pursue a posture comparable to that of Finland. That nation leaves no doubt about its fierce independence and cooperates with the West in most fields but carefully avoids institutional hostility toward Russia.

The problem is that Finland does not "cooperate" with the West - it is a member of the European Union since 1995. Or does Dr. Kissinger not consider the EU part of the West?
