Norwegian Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Stere said that there is nothing good in isolating Russia, and the reduction in international contacts reduces the chances for a constructive dialogue.

“There is nothing good in isolating Russia. It is alarming that today we have so few contacts and direct communication with Russia,” the prime minister said during a speech in the Norwegian parliament.

According to Stere, the current international situation is the most difficult since the Second World War.

In general, the Prime Minister’s speech was devoted to the problem of Ukrainian refugees. According to the Norwegian border service, 34,000 immigrants arrived in the country this year, 30,000 of them were Ukrainians.

“Never before have so many refugees settled. This year there are more of them than in the last four years combined, Stere quotes NRK.

The Prime Minister believes that by the end of the year the number of refugees from Ukraine will reach 40 thousand people, and next year about 30 thousand more may arrive in Norway, and this will require the authorities to revise the country’s budget.
