Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin said today she had taken a drugs test in the wake of video footage published earlier this week.

The video showed her partying with friends. She also vowed today that she had never used illegal drugs.

"Never in my life have I used drugs," Ms Marin told a news conference.

The result of the drugs test will be available in a week and will be provided to the media.

Ms Marin added that her ability to perform her duties remained unimpaired during the night in question and that she would have left the party had she been required to work.

Prime Minister of Finland Sanna Marin talking to the media yesterday

The Finnish leader yesterday said she was upset that videos of her dancing at private parties were published online as they were meant to be seen only by friends.

Ms Marin, 36, spoke after a two-minute video of her singing and dancing with well-known local influencers and artists spread on social media and in Finnish media on Wednesday.

The clips were originally posted to a private Instagram account.

Ms Marin, who became the world's youngest serving government leader in December 2019, said she knew she was being filmed but never thought the videos would become publicly available.

"These videos are private and filmed in a private space. I resent that these became known to the public," Marin told reporters. She said she did not know who leaked them.

Many Finns have voiced support for the young leader for combining a private life with her high-profile career.

But newspaper Helsingin Sanomat said the episode raised questions about her judgement.

"Marin may have acted in good faith, but this gullible she should not be," the paper wrote in an editorial.

"The prime minister can, in a sensitive situation, put the weapons of information warfare in the hands of those who would like to hurt Finland," the newspaper said.

Ms Marin said the video was a compilation of clips from two separate occasions a few weeks ago. She said people at the events consumed alcohol, but no one took drugs to her knowledge.

"We just partied, also in a boisterous way. I danced and sang," she said, denying a claim that the videos had been a publicity stunt less than a year until the next general election.
