Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about "official delegations" allegedly visiting Crimea.

This isn't an official delegation. According to local media, the Norwegian delegation includes a member of the Norwegian Physicians against Nuclear Weapons, an actress, Professor of Statistics at the Department of Economics of the University of Oslo, as well as farmers, entrepreneurs, and public figures.

Norway does not recognize the Russian presidential election in Crimea. "Norway will continue to support the EU’s non-recognition policy", said the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
