Residents of the Norwegian city of Vadso near the border with Russia heard the siren and thought that the war with Russia has begun. This is reported by the Norwegian TV and radio company NRK.

It is noted that the alarm sounded on April 6 at about 23:50, employees could turn it off only after fifteen minutes.

During this time, the concerned residents called the police, as many of them, at the sound of the siren, thought about the attack of Russia.

"Many people suggested the worst, for example, a war," said police officer Jan-Olaf Schoelberg.

As it is noted, several sirens are installed in the city, but only one of them has turned on. The reasons for this have not yet been established.

It is reported that in sunny weather from the city of Vadso, the territory of Russia, in particular the dilapidated nuclear plant, is clearly visible, and when sirens turn on, many residents think about the eastern neighbor.

We recall, in September 2016, Norway began to build a fence of steel rods on the border with Russia. On October 13, 2017, the head of the Norwegian Ministry of Defense announced that Norway would deploy an armored battalion near the border with Russia.
