Norway is joining the sixth package of EU sanctions on Russia, the kingdom’s Foreign Ministry said on its website on Friday.

“We support the European Union in imposing sanctions against Russia in order to put pressure on the government of that country and its leadership. Now we are banning the import of oil from Russia to Norway via sea routes,” the statement quoted Norway’s Foreign Minister Anniken Huitfeldt as saying.

“The ban on the import of crude oil and oil products from Russia comes into force immediately, but the order provides for a transitional period for the supply of crude oil until December 5, 2022 and for oil products until February 5, 2023,” the statement said.

Norway also is imposing sanctions against 65 Russian citizens and 18 Russian organizations.

“Despite the fact that the trade turnover between Russia and Norway is insignificant, some Norwegian enterprises and their employees will be significantly affected by the anti-Russian sanctions,” the Foreign Ministry warned.
