“Let these ‘diplomats’ first read the Svalbard Agreement and find something there about the right to violate it under the pretext of sanctions.

And then the “Russian provocation” can become a sad reality for their puppet government, ”he wrote in his Telegram channel.

Earlier, the Norwegian Foreign Ministry said that the agreement on cooperation with Russia in the Barents Sea is not subject to denunciation.

State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin instructed the House Committee on International Affairs to study the issue of denunciation, or suspension, of the treaty between Russia and Norway on the delimitation of maritime spaces and cooperation in the Barents Sea.

On June 28, Norway rejected Russia's application for the passage of goods for Russian settlements on Svalbard through the only checkpoint on the Russian-Norwegian border - Storskog.

Russian Consul General in Svalbard Sergei Gushchin, commenting on Norway's refusal to allow cargo to pass for Russian settlements, suggested that the Norwegian authorities had not thought through all the consequences of this step.
