FINLAND’s party-hard PM Sanna Marin apologised today after a photo emerged of two topless women kissing at her summer palace.
The saucy snap heaped yet more pressure on her after she was filmed grinding on a model and was forced to take a drug test after twerking at a “wild” private party.

Mum-of-one Ms Marin, 36 – one of the world’s youngest leaders – is fighting off claims from opponents she is “immature” and not in full control of running the country.
However others say she is the victim of double standards as the behaviour of older male politicians is rarely commented on.
She has also been boosted by women across the world posting videos of themselves dancing in “solidarity”.
Now a photo circulating on social media has cast light on yet another boozy bash – this time at Kesäranta, the prime minister’s taxpayer-funded seaside residence in Helsinki.
It shows two well known influencers sharing a snog while covering their bare chests with a “Finland” sign taken from the palace.
Ms Marin confirmed it was snapped during a private party with friends after a music festival in July.
She said: “We had a sauna, swam and spent time together.”
And she added: “In my opinion, the picture is not appropriate. I apologise for it.
“That kind of a picture should not have been taken but otherwise, nothing extraordinary happened at the get-together.”
It comes after video emerged of Sanna grinding with glamorous ex-model Sabina Särkkä on a nightclub dance floor in the early hours.
Other clubbers watched in astonishment as the pair wrapped their arms round each other and the PM writhed with one leg between Sabina’s.
It was reportedly filmed at trendy nightspot Klubi on the same night Sanna was seen dancing intimately with pop star Olavi Uusivirta.
Olavi, 38, later denied having an affair with the married PM and insisted they are “just good friends”.
On Friday she agreed to take a drug test – paid for herself – following noisy demands from opposition MPs.
It came back negative on Monday, her office said.
But critics pointed out the length of time that had elapsed since another private party where she was filmed dancing and singing with showbiz pals including a rapper and a TV star.
In a press conference last week, Marin said she had been drinking lightly on the night in question but had not taken drugs and was always in an appropriate condition to “lead the country”.
An earlier leaked video posted on social media showed Ms Marin with Finnish singer Alma, rapper Petri Nygard, TV host Tinni Wikstrom, along with social media influencers and MPs from her own Social Democratic party.
The clip was published by Finnish tabloid Iltalehti and shows the PM dancing, singing and drinking with pals in what appears to be an apartment.
At one stage someone off-camera refers to “powder gang”, allegedly as alluding to cocaine, although Ms Marin strenuously denied seeing any drugs at the bash.
She has defended her behaviour and insists she has nothing to hide, adding that she “resents” the fact the footage of her in a “private space” has been leaked.
“I’m disappointed that it has become public,” she said.
“I spent the evening with friends. Partied, pretty wild, yes. Danced and sang.”
She added: “I have not used drugs myself, or anything other than alcohol.
“I’ve danced, sung and partied and done perfectly legal things. I have also not been in a situation where I would know that others are doing it that way.”
Amid a political row, many women have come to her defence and accused her critics of double standards.
“Why can’t she party after work? Do we expect our leaders not to be human beings?” tweeted Ashok Swain, a professor at Uppsala University in Sweden.
Spanish politician Iratxe García Pérez said: “How shocking!!! A young politician who does her job and enjoys her private life… Why can’t a young woman have fun?
“I can’t stand gender double standards. All my support to @MarinSanna.”
Ms Marin has said previously she and other politicians have faced unfair criticism because they are women.
