Helsinki police say that the pedestrian crossing outside the Russian embassy on Tehtaankatu in the city centre was spray-painted in rainbow colours on Friday night. According to the report they received, seven people were involved.

Russia has been the target of similar protests around the world since it brought in a controversial law restricting information about homosexuality.
