The federal authorities of Norway announced their intention to build a fence on the border with Russia, in order to prevent penetration on the Norwegian territory of refugees coming from the Middle East and North Africa, Riafan reports on the 24th of August.
Construction of a wall with the height of 3,5 meters and the length of 200 km will start in the next weeks, because Norway intends to complete all works until winter.
We should remind you that one of the immigrants’ route to Europe goes through Russia. This route is preferable for those refugees, who strive to get into the countries of Northern Europe. At the same time, many public members criticize such drastic measure taken by the government.
