Norway rejected sanctions against Russia due to fish exports

Summary of Disinformation

Norway stopped fish exports to Russia, but was not able to find an alternative market, which resulted in big losses for the country’s economy and, subsequently, in the lifting of the sanctions. If Norway suffered from the sanctions imposed on Russia, so will Georgia.


Recurring pro-Kremlin claiming that Norway is struggling to find a substitute for the Russian fish market and has lifted sanctions as a consequence. .

In fact, Norway joined the EU in imposition of sanctions on Russia in 2014 and supported the extension of sanctions in 2019, together with other partner countries. Moreover, Norwegian fish exports have been increasing since 2014.
