The head of the Norwegian intelligence service, Lieutenant-General Morten Haga Lunde, said that Russian aircraft imitated an attack on a military radar stationed in the north of the country.
This was reported by the Barents Observer.
In his annual report to members of the military society in Oslo, he noted that on February 14 last year, 11 Russian Su-24s flew from the airfield in the Murmansk region, proceeded over the Barents Sea and allegedly imitated an attack on the Norwegian radar near the city of Verde. Then, without crossing the state border, they returned to the airfield of permanent deployment.
In Verde is a radar Globus II, which allows you to monitor the Russian ballistic missiles.
A year earlier, Lunde had reported a similar incident. Then, he said, nine aircraft took part in the imitation of the attack. The Russian side has repeatedly expressed concern about the location of the radar at the very border of the Kola Peninsula, since it may become part of the American missile defense system.
