Norwegian Defense Minister: "Our country is the eyes and ears of NATO in the north"

52

Norwegian Defense Minister Frank Bakke-Jensen made a statement on the need to improve the military infrastructure in the north of the country. According to a Norwegian government official, "Norway is NATO's eyes and ears in the north."


Against this background, it became known about the implementation of a new Norwegian program "to improve the level of safety." It turned out that over the course of 15 years, the budget of the Norwegian intelligence services has increased several times. Since 2018, Norwegian intelligence has been funded annually at the level of NOK 2 billion (about $ 250 million), which looks like an impressive amount for a country with a population of about 5,3 million people (about the same number lives in St. Petersburg today).

The Norwegian TV channel NRK released an article in which interviews with residents of the northern part of Norway, a region bordering the Russian Federation, were presented.

Torill Olsen, a resident of the Norwegian region of Finnmark, notes that recently there has been an outflow of the Norwegian population from the northern regions. According to her, "the civilian population is leaving, and an increase in the military presence is becoming increasingly evident."

Torill Olsen:

It is strange to me that the authorities constantly talk about the need for military reinforcement in the north and do not see the influence of the civilian population on the stable relations between Norway and Russia. And it turns out that if you look out the window, you can see some of the military. And Russia responds in kind.

According to a local resident, the authorities need to take care of the influx of civilians into the region.

From the interview:

It would strengthen the territory in a friendly way. We have a lot in common with the Russians, we cooperate in the field of fishing, and we have a common история, going far into the past.

From an interview with Norwegian reporters with local fisherman Willy Pedersen:

I do not understand at all how Norway can claim sovereignty and resources in this area, if there will soon be no people left at all.

The Norwegian Ministry of Defense is not particularly attentive to the statements of residents of the region bordering on the Russian Federation. Apparently, the course of confrontation under US pressure prevails over pragmatism and good-neighborliness in relations with Russia.

        I am not at all surprised by this, since the Norwegian Stoltenberg is the NATO Secretary General.
        And Stoltenberg is not a simple political figure.
        AT FIRST. he is the offspring of one of Norway's most influential families, who have been referred to in the press as the "Norwegian Kennedy" for decades.
        Jens's father, Torvald Stoltenberg, was the leader of the ruling People's Workers' Party of Norway, entered parliament, and several times received ministerial posts - from defense minister to foreign minister. His mother Karin also worked in the government and at one time was in charge of foreign trade in Norway, then oversaw the work of the Ministry of Social Policy. Another member of the clan is the multi-local minister Johan Holst, who was in charge of the military department, the police, and foreign policy. But the main secret of the power of the "Norwegian Kennedy" lies in their wives: sisters Karina (mother of Jens Stoltenberg) and Marianne They are representatives of the richest Heiberg family in the country, bankers and industrialists.

        It was during WWII, when the Vidkun Quisling regime loyal to the Third Reich was established in Norway, Axel Heiberg Steng was one of Quisling's closest advisers. And it is thanks to Quisling all the factories, mines and mines belonging to the clan members were provided with free labor - prisoners of Norwegian concentration camps, usually Soviet prisoners of war. During the WWII, the Norwegian mines worked in 3 shifts, because the Wehrmacht military machine desperately needed iron ore, copper, nickel, non-ferrous metals, and sulfur. AND the price of uninterrupted operation of the mines - 13 thousand Red Army prisoners of war who died from overwork (All in all, according to our historians, up to 75 thousand Soviet prisoners of war were kept in the Nazi concentration camps in Norway).

        AND SECOND, despite all this wealth of "Norwegian Kennedy", Jens Stoltenberg - following the example of his daddy, also in his youth, he first got involved in politics with the left movement and on his own initiative offered his services to the KGB - and as a result turned out to be a former KGB agent nicknamed "Steklov" who was betrayed, in particular, by the Soviet traitor to the Motherland and defector Gordievsky... But Jens - unlike his supporters and followers - categorically abandoned his left-proletarian political views and easily emerged in this revelatory and intelligence mess of the defector Gordievsky, as befits rich offspring, "dry from the water."

        And now Jones Stoltenberg (with his skeleton in the closet) faithfully serves not only his family clan of the military industrial complex in Norway, but also his new masters in the United States.

Apparently this is waiting for all our sworn partners. Zadolbali already with their howl.

    Well, everything is serious there, in an adult and without pants, in Northern Norway, NATO is building a radar station for a missile attack warning system "Globus-3" in Varda, military airfields of Bardufoss, Evenes, Banak, Erland and Rygge are being modernized, the port terminal Grotsund is being re-equipped for receiving American nuclear submarines

      It is the presence of the Globus-3 missile attack warning system radar in Varda, the military airfields of Bardufoss, Evenes, Banak, Erland and Ryugge, the Grotsund port terminal for receiving American nuclear submarines and will predetermine the future of Norway, turning it into radioactive ash, in the event of a military conflict between NATO and Russia. I think so....

      radar station of the missile attack warning system "Globus-3"

      Target number times
      military airfields Bardufoss, Evenes, Banak, Erland and Rygge

      Goals number two
      the port terminal Grotsund will be converted to receive American nuclear submarines

      When the submarine is there - target number three.
      I don't understand ... a small country, 3,5 million people, wants to draw a big target on itself? States will merge them first if something happens! They will not wait for help, because there is nowhere: neither by land, nor by sea, let alone by air, no one will deliver anything to them. Or do they hope that preparations on their territory, under the guise of a howling about an aggressive Russia, will be unnoticed?

    Tatyana, dear, about the NATO secretary, it seems that the old Russian proverb, about an affectionate calf, fits. And, maybe, like in "The Diamond Hand", remember, the hero Nikulin told his wife from a big Budun, they say, maybe I will be awarded posthumously. Let's see how the SVR of the Russian Federation will mark, or will not mark, his many years of work ... This, of course, is sarcasm ...
    The Pazkikh HPP cascade in the Murmansk region, apart from the Russian Federation and Finland, has been operating for Norway for many years (2 of the 7 HPPs of this cascade are located in Norway). The Khevoskoski HPP and the Borisoglebsk HPP in this cascade were built by the Norwegians back in the 50-60s of the 20th century. Help from the Norwegians, it is clear that for good money, both our fishermen and our oil workers in terms of technology, both in the 90s, and already in this century, it went on and on. Business and nothing personal. Even SEVMASH and Zvezdochka worked on the economy of Norway ... The Norwegians have always been like this, with the British, and with the Americans, and with the Germans, and with the USSR, and with the Swedes, and with the Finns passionately kissed, their nature seems to be ...
