The Finnish president's office announced the decision in a statement on Tuesday, saying the diplomat’s actions "violate the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations."
It did not provide further details but added that the Russian ambassador will be informed about the expulsion of the embassy personnel.
The Russian embassy in Helsinki has yet to comment on the expulsion, but Moscow has already denied its diplomats’ engagement in improper activities.
The decision was made following a meeting between Finnish President Sauli Niinisto and the Government’s Foreign and Security Ministerial Committee, where the ongoing war on Ukraine and the explosion of the Nova Kakhovka dam were also discussed.
They condemned as “a humanitarian and environmental disaster” the destruction of the key dam in the Russian-controlled Kherson region which occurred early on Tuesday.
"The explosion marks an escalation of the war in a new way, causing widespread destruction in Ukraine for civilians and the environment alike," they said.
