Norway follows EU in imposing sanctions on Russia

Oslo, March 22: Norway has decided to follow the European Union (EU) in imposing sanctions on Russia over the Ukraine crisis, the Norwegian foreign ministry said Saturday.

Norway would do exactly the same as the EU when it came to financial sanctions against Russia, said Norwegian Foreign Minister Boerge Brende Friday, according to Xinhua.

“This means that a number of key Russian politicians and officials are no longer welcome in Norway, either visiting or passing through. They will not have access to the assets they may have in Norway,” said Brende.

The sanctions will be implemented very quickly, the Norwegian foreign minister said.
