The Finnish Social Democrat leader initially canceled her meeting with the media, but later decided to answer journalists’ questions.

Marin confirmed that the photo was taken during a party at the official residence after the “Ruisrock” music festival in early July in Turku.

– We used to go to the sauna, swim, spend our free time in the sauna and in the garden – said the Prime Minister. According to her, it was the only private party at the residence that she organized during her vacation.

In recent days, the disclosed video recordings of private night parties with Marin’s participation have grown into a scandal that has also been reported in the media around the world. The Prime Minister of Finland also decided to test for the presence of drugs. The test result – announced on Monday – was negative.

The press notes that controversial night parties took place in early August, after Marin’s vacation had ended. The head of the Finnish government – as it was calculated – was to play two weekends in a row, and during that time her deputy was not appointed.

“I assume nothing significant happened then,” said Finnish President Sauli Niinisto shortly when asked on Tuesday whether there was a breach of security or top-level decision-making during the night the prime minister was partying.
