HELSINKI, FINLAND: The women around the world are backing Prime minister, Sanna Marin, by posting dancing and partying videos with #SolidaritywithSanna, after two videos of the 36-year-old politician went viral that sparked claims of drug abuse which, later, got denied by Marin, who said she had "nothing to conceal or hide."

Marin faced backlash after videos of her dancing at a private house party and another where she appears to be dancing intimately with Finnish pop star Olavi Uusivirta at a famous nightclub in Helsinki surfaced online. Many criticized her for 'unsuitable' behavior while questioning her political judgement. However, as reported earlier, Marin told reporters at a press conference in Kuopio's Rissala airport on August 18, "I have danced, sung, celebrated, done legal things," while pointing out the person who leaked the videos, which she said were from a couple of weeks ago, "I trusted that since the videos are private and published at a private event, they would not be published. It feels bad that they have been published."

As per Yahoo!, a male MP, Mikko Kärna posted on Twitter that Marin should undergo a voluntary drug test. “Just for the sake of the discussion in public, it would be wise if the Prime Minister voluntarily went through a drug screening, the results of which would be made public by an independent body. The people are also allowed to expect this from their PM," he tweeted. Responding to the drug test, Marin said, "I have nothing to hide. I have never taken drugs."
