Slav's are cannon fodder, Finns are tough people fighting defensively and fiercely in their own territory to defend their people, and they had a good Swedish general.

Stalin killed any of his men who had any inkling of how to actually fight a war and then shoved a bunch of poorly trained poorly armed conscripts and yes men into the land of autism. Pic related explains the war pretty well.

Fins were secretly supported by Nazi Germany at the height of its economy.
Soviets were in the death throes of gulag-stage "revolution".

The people Stalin (a Georgian) sent to Finland were ethnic Russians who were meant to die, he fucking hated them. Didn't provide food, clothing, weapons… and none of them were actually trained soldiers.

Winter war is what happens when people mistake the objective. Everyone thought it was about Finland, when in reality it was about Staling killing 2 birds with one stone:
1. Assert himself on the world stage as a power.
2. Get a bunch of ethnic Russian city boys killed.

Of course Fins ferocity made #1 kind of a failure…. but the way Stalin set it up he had to win in some way. Denying him objective #1 meant the Fins provided him with objective #2.

Poland summed the whole thing up fairly nicely. Soviets blundered more than Finns did, however, Soviets would have absolutely archived their strategic goals if the peace negotiations in Moscow didn't come to it's oddly abrupt conclusion.

Hitler, apparently, was not too amused at the prospect of Finland becoming a communist country, so he or someone in Hitler's administration sent a ultimatum to Stalin to conclude a favorable peace for finns. Stalin, being not too happy about ending up in a war with Germany agreed.

Pretty simple user. You have a highly motivated people defending their shit, not to mention the Bolsheviks figured it would be a good idea to go to war with commisars acting as an officer corp they gutted over politics. Turns out making people fight at gun point isn't the best motivator after all.

The red army was set up for failure expecting a quick victory despite having killed all the superior officers and not allocating the proper amount of manpower they could spare (the red army sent more troops than the finns had but not as much as people believe on most fights they were fighting 1vs1, often even on local numeric inferiority to the finns, since the reds having sometimes literal 0 officers, insane logistic problem and low morale. The reds still had units with the retarded Trotsky system were a major could end up in charge of a whole fucking division…).
If you want a modern example the Houthis in Yemen or the rebellion in east Ukraine are good examples.
On paper both are fighting against overwhelming odds. IRL they're fighting mismatched conscripts led by retards (if by anyone), they have no problem to outmaneuver and destroy piecemeal their gigantic enemies in opportunity strikes due to global incompetence of their enemies at all levels, very low casualties on one side very high on the other and the side winning get STRONGER every time it wins since it gets to plunder the routing/surrendering enemy gear.
You don't have logistic issues when the enemy is making home delivery of ammo and weapons.

Also in the end Finland sued for peace immediately once they realized they were verging on total collapse and the soviets were going to have their total victory, giving out way more land than what the soviet had claimed knowing perfectly that the soviets didn't want to tie their troops down (that was the reason for the whole war the soviets high command wanted a bit more breathing room for Leningrad for the war with Germany), and Stalin immediately took the deal (because, for all his wrongs, Stalin never gave a fuck about spreading communism).
That's not a victory for Finland by any stretch of the imagination, it just appears (propaganda) that way because people think of victory as total victory, despite it being pretty rare in the history of warfare (even if it was indeed the goal of the soviets but they settled for less due to their army poor initial performance and external events).

Ah, yes! A Hungarian, commonly known as the great underachiever. His only function in life is to go from thread to thread, board to board, parading the achievements of his countrymen! No matter what subject you bring on, he boasts that his country had one man tangentially related to the matter, whereas the silent others' countries had furnished hundreds who contributed greatly to the matter. He boasts, but does not know why he boasts. He's proud, but he has nothing to be proud of personally. He's ignorant, but he knows that his neighbour's great great grandfather once wrote a book about something. His greatest achievement is pissing all the way across a large room and he's proud about the fact that his fellow countryman had fastened a nut on the craft that sent men all the way to the moon.

The centerpiece of the finnish strategy was the "motti": Russian mechanized units such as those notoriously deployed to Suomusalmi were stuck to using roads while the finns could freely navigate the whole terrain. Instead of fighting one giant enemy, the road would be blocked off to cleave the unit into smaller pieces, and the advancing unit was surrounded at all sides and fought to attrition. The finns could also launch stealthy raiding patrols to target field rations and cooking equipment while the russians' ability to do the same was severely limited. Starved enough, the surrendering enemy would leave behind their tanks and guns unscathed and ready to be used against their own countrymen.

Isn't the total closer to 11% of Finnish clay, as the OP video mentions as well?
At any rate, though I can't find a source for it off hand, I remember a lecture about this mentioning that while on the face of it it's a fairly insignificant chunk of land, it was approximately 48% of the entire industrial capacity of Finland at that time, on top of being a highly defensible position (second only to a Greater Finland encompassing the entirety of Eastern Karelia and the Kola peninsula).
What I'm trying to say is there's a lot of things to laugh at in this war, I don't think the loss of territory is necessarily one of them.

Åland Islands.
Not since the early 1800s. It used to be, for a good while, until it got ceded to the Russians who incorporated it into Finland, then still a duchy under the Imperial crown.

Having a quick look it seems they are pretty much entirely culturally Swedish, and are at best nominal Finish clay. As far can tell it is like an Autonomous Oblast, Finland having at several times reaffirmed their cultural rights, like the exclusive use of the Swedish tongue.

In any case the point of this map was a jingoist impression of what could've been, so I don't think the author really cared. Most versions have Estonia annexed, either as an unconnected overseas territory, or including the entirety of the St. Petersburg region.
Pic related would be a more ambitious version. There's much much worse, but I'm pretty sure those all fall into the memes category.

From the beginning the Russians were fumbling. Their initial bombing of Helsinki was pretty much a failure, and it just kept on getting worse. The Russian's did not have much military experience fighting in the terrain of Finland, Many of their conscripts had no idea how to ski let alone fight while skiing, and their uniforms were a bright tan camo which was extremely easy to pick out in the snow.
