Russia’s Ministry of Economic Development proposes to close the special economic zone in Port of Murmansk because of lack of demand. Since the zone was opened in 2010, not one single company has been registered as resident.
“The Government will support the EU’s new restrictive measures against Russia. Norway has since the start of the crisis in Ukraine stood together with the EU and neighboring countries in our reactions to Russia’s violation of international law. We will do the same this time,” says Foreign Minister Børge Brende.
