On Monday the Prime Minister of Norway announced that his country will raise their “military readiness’ and warned that “all NATO countries” must increase their guard as the war continues in Ukraine.
Gahr Store said his country which shares a 123 mile border with Russia including the Arctic Circle has placed his forces on “military readiness” as of today to “guard” against the threat from Russia.
The Defence Minister Bjorn Arild Gram said the military readiness will include tighter measures to logistics, military installations and communications amid Russia’s fresh wave of missile strikes in Kyiv leaving the capital without electricity and water as the country is now in the winter months who are facing temperatures of -30C.
Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Store, told reporters on Monday, “The military will as of tomorrow raise its preparedness in Norway.
“We currently have no reason to believe that Russia wants to involve Norway or any other country directly in the war, but the war in Ukraine means it is necessary for all NATO countries to be increasingly on their guard.”
He added, “I must stress that nothing has happened in the last day or days that has prompted us to raise our preparedness now.
“It is an evolution over time which has led us to take this step.”
