Vandalism The monument to Karl Gustav Mannerheim in the Finnish city of Tampere is periodically desecrated.

In winter 2012, a wave of vandalism hit upon properties owned by Russian citizens as well as those of Russian ethnic background holding non-Russian citizenship. All of the incidents were of the same nature: offenders broke into houses and flats, destroyed any valuables found, smeared red paint or ketchup on the walls. None of the nationalist organisations claimed responsibility for this.

About ten enterprises belonging to natives of Thailand were attacked one night in Lahti in early August of 2013. Most commonly, vandals smashed windows of premises, including massage parlours and restaurants.

On September 4th the Living Word Pentecostal Church in the eastern part of Helsinki was vandalized. Window panes of the church meetings hall were covered by Islamic inscriptions.

In November 2013 in Tampere, a monument to the leader of Finland of the Second World War, Marshal K. Mannerheim, was vandalized by unknown people.
