MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The support of Finland's Finns Party, which backs an anti-immigration agenda, has increased after the August stabbing attack in the Finnish city of Turku, a new survey revealed Thursday.
On August 18, two people were killed and eight others injured in a knife attack in Turku's market square. The prime suspect is Abderrahman Bouanane, a 23-year-old man of Moroccan origin.
The survey added that it was the largest growth among the largest political parties, as the Left Alliance and the Green League improved their results if to compare with the August poll, however the Centre Party of Finland, the Christian Democrats, Swedish People's Party of Finland and the Social Democratic Party lost 1.1, 0.4, 0.3 and 03 percent respectively.
The deadly incident prompted Helsinki to begin taking into consideration amending citizenship and immigration legislation in the country.
