    A Finn-Ugric tongue with strong Russian influence. It is likely Karelian.

    I’m pretty sure it’s Karelian: it sounds like Finnish but it’s not, and I heard the words “Karjala”.

    I agree with Aregnorti and Mut that its a finnic language with russian infuence, but I think it’s veps.

    “Terveh, Karjal”, in Karelian, by ensemble “Kantele”, Petrozavodsk.

    The answer is Karelian (Karjalan kieli), a Finno-Ugric language spoken mainly in the Russian Republic of Karelia, and also in Finland.
