Norway has expressed serious concern that they are at risk of a “major attack” as the Kremlin has positioned armed nuclear submarines in Finnmark.

Vladimir Putin has 8,000 troops formed of two brigades who are positioned 20Km from Finnmark which borders the Barents Sea and is in striking distance of the NATO country.

Sky News Australia’s Brent O’Halloran said, “Russia’s Northern Fleet with its nuclear-armed submarines are based on the nearby Kola Peninsula, strategists suggest that Moscow can’t protect them and its ability to respond in kind to a nuclear attack without taking Finnmark.”

FFI Research Director Espen Skjelland who is a Norwegian security expert has raised extreme concerns that there are strategic bases just across the Norwegian border.

He told Sky News Australia, “For Russia, they need to protect their bases, what we call the Bastion, so they have the Bastion defence so we think it may strengthen their defence, under certain circumstances, to attack north Norway.

“We have been very concerned about the risks for a massive attack from Russia.”

Skjelland added, “We have been very concerned about the risk for a massive attack from Russia.

“Not a potential for war between Norway and Russia spilling out of any kind of crisis in the bilateral relationship between the countries.

“But it is a part of a lot a larger game I mean, the deterrence game between above all the US-NATO and Russia.”
