The one floor structure is fire control post for coastal artillery and the tower is measuring tower for coastal artillery.

As noted already a few times, you could consider adding photo caption texts to your question, since they often contain the answer to your question. In this case: "Ryssien rakentama tulikorsu Syvärin rannalla." = "Soviet-built bunker on shore of River Syväri / Svir."

#117643, and seems to be a Finnish imubetoni(/pallo)korsu = vacuum conrete(/ball) bunker,
A AFAIK non standard model with a firing slit.

This seems to be Soviet NPS 3 bunker machinegun-mount for Maxim-machinegun. At least according "The Stalin and Molotov Lines" by Neil Short, page 21.
