Norway is aware and closely follows the actions of the Russian Federation in the Baltic Sea. Ine Soreide, the country's foreign minister said that during her visit in Kyiv on Tuesday.

'We support the EU sanctions and restrictive measure, and our position will remain the same in the future. Norway stands for the support of the international law, and this (Russia's action in the Baltic Sea, - 112 International) is a violation of the international law. We also consider these situations not only in the context of Ukraine but also in the context of the region where Ukraine belongs to', Soreide said.  

She also added that Russia's military presence in the area is increasing.

'As we see, the situation in the region shows that Russia's military presence increases; the military drills get more complicated, as we see more military aircraft appearing there', the minister concluded.

In late August, Danish fighters escorted the Russian bomber Tu-95, which approached the country's airspace over Baltic Sea.
