The article featured an image of four different women and the caption read, “All in their thirties: These women have a country to run.

We also checked the official website of the Finnish Government to confirm the identity of the ministers.

Sanna Marin – Prime Minister

Li Andersson – Minister of Education

Maria Ohisalo – Minister of the Interior

Katri Kulmuni – Minister of Finance

On further investigation, we found that the women in the viral picture are Twins Prisma & Princy and Deepa & Damanta, TikTok stars from Nepal.

On of the Twins also uploaded the original picture on her Facebook page on March 31, 2019.

The above information proves that wrong pictures of Finland’s ministers are being circulated online and hence the post is false.
