About 55% of Finns and 14% of European Russians have Asian genes?

Central and East Asian admixture East Asian mtDNA (haplogroups A, B, C, D, M, N9a and Z) is restricted mainly to Eastern Europe and Scandinavia and is found at generally low frequencies: Lapland (8.5%), Bulgaria/Turkey (6.9%), European Russia (4.2%), Spain/Portugal (2.3%), Czech Republic (1.8%), Western Slavs... show more Central and East Asian admixture
East Asian mtDNA (haplogroups A, B, C, D, M, N9a and Z) is restricted mainly to Eastern Europe and Scandinavia and is found at generally low frequencies: Lapland (8.5%), Bulgaria/Turkey (6.9%), European Russia (4.2%), Spain/Portugal (2.3%), Czech Republic (1.8%), Western Slavs (1.6%), Eastern Slavs (1.3% to 5.2%), Southern Slavs (1.2%), Scandinavia (0.93%), France/Italy (0.81%), Iceland (0.64%), Germany (0.57%), Finland/Estonia (0.5%), England/Wales (0.23%) and Scotland (0.18%).[94]

Central Asian Y-DNA is much more common. Tat-C (haplogroup N1c) is a Y-chromosome lineage that originated in Siberia[95] and is thought to have spread to Northeastern Europe with male Uralic hunter-gatherer migrations occurring over the last 4000 years.[96] Today it's found in Northern and Northeastern Europe at varying frequencies: Finland (55%), Lithuania (47%), Lapland (42%), Estonia (37%), European Russia (14%), Ukraine (11%), Sweden (8%), Norway (6%), Poland (4%), Germany (3%), Slovakia (3%), Denmark (2%) and Belarus (2%).[97][98]

Though the above rather high frequencies are likely inflated due to genetic drift, which can affect Y-chromosomes,[99] a small but significant Central/East Asian genetic influence in Russians and Finns has been confirmed using population structure analysis.[100]

Update: Flatter nose is cause by heat, not genes. Flatter but broader so air flow and volume remain constant, due to the genetic constancy of volume.
Update 2: 2nd times: Europe experienced numerous conquests by Asians: Huns, Mongols, Tartars, Turks etcs. But I think most of the genetic contribution was due to migration, not conquest.
