Finnish Lapland is at much lower elevation than the highest ground of Swedish Lapland, so you can't compare with the highest stations in Sweden.

Kilpisjärvi Saana is at 1002m and it's the highest station in Finland

Highest other,

Muonio 1: 760m
Muonio 2: 565m
Kittilä Levi: 522m
Kuusamo Ruka: 500m
Antarktis Aboa: 497m
Pyhä: 491m
Inari: 437m


Sodankylä: 248m
Ilomantsi Pötsönvaara: 235m
Rovaniemi: 195m


Helsinki A: 51m
Turku: 8m
Helsinki C: 4m
Porvoo Kalbådagrund: 0m

Vologda in Russia is at the same latitude as Stockholm and look at their averages: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vologda#Climate

The Atlantic and the westerlies have a tremendous effect.
