Norway to close ports to Russian trucks and ships

Norway will close its borders and ports to Russian trucks and ships, joining sanctions imposed by the European Union over the war in Ukraine, the Norwegian foreign ministry said, Aznews tv informs, citing Reuters.

Russian transport will be barred from entering Norway’s borders immediately, and ports will be shut for Moscow’s ships on May 7.

Russian fishing vessels, which often land their catch at ports in northern Norway, will receive exemptions from sanctions.

Norway’s Arctic Svalbard archipelago, which operates under a 1920s treaty allowing expanded foreign access, will also be exempted.
