Threat level in Norway remains unchanged, but a special group is being formed to monitor the situation

There is no basis for increasing the threat level in Norway due to the war in Ukraine. Still, the police and the PST are setting up a separate group to monitor the situation, according to Minister of Justice and Emergency Management Emilie Enger Mehl (SP).

The new group will provide ongoing information to the government so that the administration can assess the situation.

The threat level is not raised, among other things, because the threat assessment on February 11 already referred to Russia as a threat factor, especially in the field of cybercrime.

At that time, it was considered, among other things, that subjects who operate in the areas of defense, emergency preparedness, policy formulation, and technology were particularly vulnerable to computer attacks.

  1. Russia has put its strategic/nuclear forces on alert, and the possibility of the Ukraine War escalating into nuclear world war is now great, and it can happen almost instantaneously.

    Every person – including/especially our children – in Norway should know as soon as possible
    what fallout shelter they should go to,
    that it will be provisioned with water, food, sanitation and medical supplies, and
    that Norwegian – not vigilante or other law – will be enforced in it.

    I heard that the kommunes had been given stocks of potassium iodide pills for distribution, but there won’t be TIME to distribute them if a nuclear war does break out, and their expiration date may have been passed.

    And they will be vital if Allied ballistic missile submarines are deployed in Norwegian fjords and the Russians start nuking the fjords to destroy any missile subs, whereupon radiation far more intense than that from Chernobyl 1986 in the Dovrefjell will wash all over Norway.
    Then too, intense radiation from England will be coming over, possibly for weeks.

    All these other threat concerns are appropriate, of course, but sivillforsvars which I assume “emergency preparedness” should be the *highest* not lowest priority and must be dealt with AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
