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.
