Russian Federation detains Norwegian 'spy'

Russia detains Norwegian suspected of espionage

News agency Rosbalt reports about the accusations, citing a law enforcement source.

Russian security services believe Berg had been cooperating with Norwegian security services as well as the Central Intelligence Agency of the United States, Russian media said, citing sources.

Froud Berg was detained on December 6 by Federal Security Service officers at a time when the Norwegian had received documents containing classified information about the Navy of the Russian Federation.

Russia is holding a Norwegian man on suspicion of spying after he allegedly received classified documents from a Russian man who is also under arrest, an official said on December 19.

News agency TASS quotes press secretary Ekaterina Krasnova with Lofortovo Court saying Frode Berg is accused of espionage. Berg also spoke out against a wall on the border between the countries, considering the move a symbolic action against Russian Federation.

Gov. Says Senator Should Resign Over Misconduct Allegations
Wolf says there's a lack of "adequate structure for victims to report this type of behavior". In a statement on his own Facebook page , Leach has denied any intentional wrongdoing.

Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs provides Berg with all necessary help.

Frode Berg, 62, had been working in a town of Storskog as a border guard for 25 years.

The Norwegian broadcaster TV2 said that the 62-year-old used to work at the Norwegian Border Commissioner, a government agency that oversees laws and traffic at the border with Russian Federation. He was so inspired when travelling to this country that he even wanted to write a book. Small town of Kirkenes, with three thousand people living there, is called the most Russian city in Norway: most of people speak Russian, road signs are duplicated in Russian.

Berg became a pensioner in 2014 and has since been engaged voluntarily in Red Cross and Pikene på Broen, a collective of curators producing the local winter festival Barents Spektakel in Kirkenes. Berg was interested in Russian Federation, he visited Moscow several times and posted photos from his trips on Facebook.

His family said they last heard from him two weeks ago when he sent a picture of himself in Red Square in Moscow.
