Russia to deliver goods to Norway despite sanctions

Despite Norway joining the European Union's sanctions against Russia amidst the Ukraine crisis, Russians still might be able to send their goods through Storskog, the only checkpoint on their border with Norway.

The population of Barentsburg should get the necessary supplies through Longyearbyen, given that there has been regular communication between Norwegian and Russian officials via the Russian Foreign Affairs Ministry and the Governor of Svalbard.

The Norwegian Communication Adviser Anne Haavardsdatter Lunde has stated that Norway is satisfied with the middle-ground solution, and hopes the Russian side is as well.
