The County Council in Troms og Finnmark wants to offer refugees from Ukraine free travel by public transport for which the County Municipality is responsible.

“We want to contribute to this crisis with the measures we can implement. That is why we provide free passenger travel on the County Municipality’s means of transport,” County Councilor for Transport Agnete M. Hanssen (AP) noted in a press release.

The offer includes bus, boat, and ferry related to the public transport companies Troms fylkestrafikk in Troms and Snelandia in Finnmark. The measure applies to all new refugees who arrived in the county after March 1.

The offer is valid in the first instance until June 1 or until the refugees receive a residence card.

  1. Glad for the refugees, but meanwhile PM Støre is thinking about sending more weapons to Ukraine, to escalate the war against Russia.
    “”We agree with NATO countries that it is right to be able to contribute to Ukraine being able to defend itself,” says Støre.”
    … except Putin’s aide Medzinsky says NATO is threatening Russia’s existence and when questioned Putin’s personal spokesman Peskov says NATO threatens Russia’s existence and Russia can use nuclear weapons to defend its existence.
    So NATO members tell each other it’s OK, and Russia sees it as an act of war and is about to use nuclear weapons at least in Ukraine
    … and Biden says NATO will retaliate “in kind,” so nuclear war – for which people in Norway are completely unprepared while the government gets us into war with nuclear superpower Russia – is now inevitable.
    Who are the real war criminals in this?
    As I’ve said before, I was a junior in high school during the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962, but this is *infinitely* more dangerous … and certain.
    I cannot believe this is happening.
