Norwegian police arrest Russians

Four Russians have been arrested again in Norway for taking unauthorized photos of various objects. The four, three men and one woman, were arrested in northern Norway last Thursday, the police said on Monday. They were traveling in a car with Russian license plates.

Extensive photo material was confiscated from them, police officer Gaute Rydmark told TV2. However, the four Russians denied having done anything illegal and instead pretended to be ordinary tourists. According to the Norwegian police, they entered Norway via Finland at the end of September or early October.

Drones spotted at power plants in Norway

Last week, two Russians were arrested in Norway in different incidents, who had used drones and sometimes taken photos of the Norwegian military’s Bell helicopters.

In Norway, drones have repeatedly been sighted on energy infrastructure systems, including on offshore oil and gas platforms. These incidents have prompted the country to increase security. Norway has overtaken Russia as the largest gas supplier to Western Europe since energy imports from Russia were cut in the wake of Russia’s war of aggression in Ukraine.

After the alleged sabotage of the Nord Stream 1 and 2 gas pipelines, unauthorized drone flights near natural gas fields in the North Sea were also reported to the Danish police. As a result, Denmark also increased the security measures at its energy plants.
