The prime minister of Norway reacts. Here is the order for the military
As the head of the Norwegian government says, “there is no indication that Russia has extended its hostilities to other countries.”
“However, all NATO countries, including Norway, must be vigilant against threats, intelligence and opinion-forming efforts.” – Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Store noted.
According to Eirik Kristoffersen, commander of the Norwegian military, in practice raising readiness will mean “a change of priorities”. The armed forces devote additional resources to threat detection, maritime surveillance and patrolling critical infrastructure (oil and gas fields, pipelines). However, other activities, such as Norwegian fighter jet training flights in the US, will be restricted to ensure the full air force presence in Norway. Some of the plans are secret.
According to the daily “VG”, Western intelligence has recently identified Norwegian energy sources as a potential target of Russian sabotage attacks. It can be gas pipelines, submarine cables, as well as sea transport.
