The Ministry of Foreign Affairs reported that on the night of April 30 to May 1, unknown persons committed an act of vandalism against the Russian consulate in the city of Mariehamne on the Finnish-owned Aland Islands.

“A group of people threw an explosive noise device, as well as other objects, into the territory of the Russian foreign institution,” the report says.

It is clarified that the consulate building suffered material damage, and the actions of vandals directly threatened the life and health of employees of the diplomatic mission.
