MOSCOW, August 12. /ITAR-TASS/. Norway, which is not part of the EU, decided to join sanctions that the European Union has imposed on Russia, the Foreign Ministry said in a statement late Monday.
The ministry cited its Minister Berge Brende as saying that the country is imposing restrictions on Russia similar to the EU sanctions imposed on July 31, under which state-owned banks are banned from taking long-and mid-term loans, arms exports are prohibited and supplies of equipment, technology and know-hows to the Russian oil sector are stopped.
The ministry said it has always supported EU’s attitude towards the Russian violations of international regulations, and the sanctions come as an answer to the country destabilizing the situation in the Ukrainian east.
