Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre (AP) fears it is too late to find a diplomatic or political solution to the situation between Russia and Ukraine.
“We must hope all the time and put effort into it. But it is a very dramatic situation. If there is a new invasion in Ukraine, we will be in a new era in Europe. We just have to realize that,” Støre told Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK).
He commented on the increasingly tense situation in Ukraine on Saturday morning. Ukrainian separatists in Donetsk and Luhansk began evacuating their citizens to Russia and mobilizing their forces on Saturday.
On Saturday, NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg called on Russia to withdraw its forces from the border with Ukraine. Late Friday night, US President Joe Biden said an attack could happen at any time.
