Russia’s air traffic service has announced that the country plans to perform a missile test from vessels in northern Norwegian Sea this week, Norwegian media reported Monday.
The test is to take place off the Andoya Island in northern Norwegian Sea between April 11 and 14, according to the Russian authorities’ Notice to Airmen (NOTAM), newspaper VG reported.
“We register that they want to establish a NOTAM area west of Lofoten. They have their full right to it as there are international airspace and waters,” said Lieutenant Colonel Ivar Moen, spokesman for the operational headquarters of the Norwegian Armed Forces.
According to news agency NTB, Russia announced similar activities outside the Norwegian coast when Norway was the host country for the NATO exercise Trident Juncture in October and November last year.
