New Snowden leak reveals Norway spied on Russia for the NSA
Cold wars die hard.
According to the document, which is labeled “Top Secret” and dated April 17, 2003, Norway provides the NSA with access to targets in Russia’s Kola Peninsula. Dagbladet did not publish the report in full but stated that the specific targets in the peninsula were not identified. However, according to RT, the region contains the highest number of “nuclear weapons, reactors, and facilities,” in Russia.
The leak is, in some sense, not entirely surprising as the U.S. and Russia have been spying on each other’s nuclear capabilities since the Cold War. The report did not indicate any sort of mass spying on Russian citizens.
While Norway did confirm the authenticity of the report, it was quick to point out that it was written by the NSA and represented an “American point of view” of the intelligence sharing agreement between the two countries.
