Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin said she had undergone a drug test demanded by her critics after a video leaked of her partying with celebrities.

Marin dismissed any speculation about drug use at the party and disputed all claims that her behavior was “inappropriate.”

“I’ve done nothing illegal,” Marin told reporters, according to a BBC translation. “Even in my teens I didn’t take any kind of drugs.”

Marin said she only took the drug test as a sign of good faith to her opponents in the public and parliament.

Alcoholic beverages are featured in the video, but the short clips do not portray Marin drinking or taking drugs, leading many of her supporters to criticize her behavior as being unreasonable.

“I think my ability to function was really good. There were no known gatherings on the days I was partying,” the Finnish leader added. “I trust that people understand that leisure time and work time can be separated.”

Supporters boast that Marin’s frequent celebrity parties bring youth and a sense of cool to the office, while opponents argue that the public fame and lack of professionalism are inappropriate for a world leader.

A second video leaked Friday, showing Marin dancing with Finnish pop musician Olavi Uusivirta, leaning close to her face. Members of the press speculated that Uusivirta kissed Marin on the neck, but the prime minister denied the claim, saying he either spoke into her ear or kissed her on the cheek.

“If someone has kissed me on the cheek, there’s nothing inappropriate or something I can’t handle or tell my husband,” Marin said.

This is not the young prime minister’s first scandal over her public behaviour.

During the pandemic, Marin was intensively researched after it was revealed she went to a dance club after being unknowingly exposed to someone with COVID-19.
