The Urban Environment Agency in Oslo has been commissioned to establish a memorial site for Ukrainians in Norway. The memorial site will be located between the town hall and the Nobel Peace Center.

Today, there is a statue of King Olav on the site, which is located just west of Rådhusplassen. 

The online newspaper Avisa Oslo has been given access to correspondence between the Urban Environment Agency and the City Council’s Department for Environment and Transport. 

Based on the correspondence, the Municipality is cooperating with the Ukrainian embassy on measures to support and help Ukrainians in Oslo. 

The embassy wants a memorial site where people can come to lay flowers, remember the victims, and show their opposition to the war.

The memorial site will initially be temporary, section manager Irene Tanke wrote in the letter. NOK 50,000 has been set aside for the memorial site.

  1. Very good to see.

    Are there already memorials there to the victims of our own wrongful Iraq, Libya, and Syria wars?
