Norway will build a wall at Borisoglebsk — Storskog checkpoint at the border with Russia to prevent the flow of refugees, reports the RIA Novosti referring to the Reuters.
The decision raised a negative reaction from the Norwegian human rights defenders. They think that it will prevent the entry of peoples who escape persecution. At the end of last year, flow of refugees from the Russian- Norwegian border increased drastically. People from the Middle East and Africa began using the Arctic route to Europe, which is more secure. In a few months 5.5 million refugees crossed that border.
