The Attack on Ukraine

Norway has introduced sanctions against Russia as a consequence of the invasion of Ukraine. The sanctions do not affect the Norwegian Coastal Administration’s services directly, but they may impact commerce and activity in Norwegian ports to a certain extent. As of 8 May, Russian vessels were banned from calling at Norwegian ports. As of 14 October, Russian fishing vessels of more than 500 GT can only call at the ports of Tromsø, Kirkenes and Båtsfjord. Because of the national security situation, the Norwegian Police Security Service (PST) has stated that the threat of espionage in Norway is greater now than before the invasion.
