OSLO, May 20. /TASS/. Top officials of the Norwegian Police Security Service (PST) believe Russian intelligence officers made attempts to infiltrate its structure, the chief of the PST counterintelligence division, Arne Christian Haugstoyl, said on Wednesday.
He said the counterintelligence officials would never be sure of it a hundred percent but to the best of his knowledge the Russian intelligence milieu had failed to achieve their objective for the time being.
Haugstoyl told NRK television he believes it is important for the Russian side at this moment to get first-hand information on their methodology and attempts to plant the agents who could have provided the necessary data from inside its structure have been made in precisely this context.
PSB reports to the Norwegian Justice Ministry but unlike the National Police Directorate it engages exclusively in the matters of state security. Among other things, it supervises struggle with terrorism and/or proliferation of radical moods, prevents the instances of sabotage and industrial espionage, and organizes counterintelligence efforts. It has an annual budget of around $100 million.
