Finnish authorities seized the building and land of the Russian Center for Science and Culture, located in Helsinki. According to the newspaper Helsingin sanomat, citing the bailiff service, seven apartments were also seized, three of which are located in close proximity to the center.
The owner of the building in which the center of science and culture is located is the Russian Federation, and in the past it belonged to the USSR. The apartments are connected with the Russian Foreign Ministry.
Since the spring of 2022, Finland has been freezing the assets of Russian businessmen on the EU sanctions list. Now the Finnish authorities have dealt directly with the property of the Russian state.
