MOSCOW, October 27. /TASS/. Norway has effectively declared war on Russians, given the sharp spike in the number of Russian nationals being detained in the country on suspicion of taking pictures of critical infrastructure, the spokeswoman for Russia’s Foreign Ministry said on Thursday.
Maria Zakharova condemned the arrests as ungrounded amid what she called deliberate efforts by Norwegian authorities to hype up the Russian intelligence threat.
"Our citizens in Norway are being hunted, and the local population is actively involved in it," the Russian diplomat said.
