The Progress Party’s (FRP) parliamentary group wants Norway to request a consultation meeting with NATO in connection with the computer attack on the Norwegian parliament (Storting).

The party’s parliamentary group has put forward a resolution related to the computer attack. 

The resolution is called “Stop the attack on democracy.”

“The Progress Party is very concerned that the country’s most important democratic institution has been exposed to a computer attack, which the government believes Russia is behind. Russia has previously been behind computer attacks against Norwegian oil companies in 2015, the German parliament in 2015, and the Democrats’ headquarters in the United States in 2016,” the resolution stated.

The party’s National Assembly is now asking the government to take the initiative and request a meeting with NATO as soon as possible to discuss how to deal with the increasing use of computer attacks against member countries.

  1. But, again, what do PST and the e-service say? Are *they* certain it was the Russians, or is the government relying on allied nations who want Norway to join in a military confrontation … and probably (nuclear) war in the North … against Russia?

    Or do PST and e-service not have the capability to determine who it was? – Russians or allies.

    Again, what motive would the Russians have had?

    … remembering here that false flag attacks by the Nazis against Poland in 1939 started World War 2 and false flag attacks by the Soviets against Finland in 1939 started the Winter War.

    From Wikipedia:

    On 26 November 1939, an incident was reported near the Soviet village of Mainila, close to the border with Finland. A Soviet border guard post had been shelled by an unknown party resulting, according to Soviet reports, in the deaths of four and injuries of nine border guards. Research conducted by several Finnish and Russian historians later concluded that the shelling was a false flag operation, because there were no artillery units placed there at the time, and it was carried out from the Soviet side of the border by an NKVD unit with the purpose of providing the Soviet Union with a casus belli and a pretext to withdraw from the non-aggression pact.[71][F 10]
