It was powerful to hear President Volodymyr Zelenskyy speak, Socialist Left Party (SV) leader Audun Lysbakken said on Wednesday. He believes Norway should contribute more economically.
“There were some very specific requests from the president that I think we should keep in mind. Not least when it comes to obligations for reconstruction after the war,” Lysbakken said after hearing Zelenskyy speak to the Norwegian parliament (Storting).
We must do what we can to support the war-torn country, Lysbakken believes.
“We must do that in the areas where we have advantages. The financial (area). Accept refugees, contribute with emergency aid, and reconstruction,” he said.
The call to close ports to Russian ships is more difficult.
“This is an issue that the government must consider. We have not requested it. It is a complicated case for a country like Norway,” he said.
