Norwegian companies have been approved for direct arms sales to Ukraine

In a statement released by the Norwegian Foreign Ministry, it was announced that direct arms sales from the Norwegian defense industry to the military authorities in Ukraine are allowed as of January 1.

On the other hand; it was stated that plans should be made against the possibility of prolonging the war.

The statement also said that Norwegian defense companies can apply for export licenses to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for direct arms sales to Ukraine.
