Border Crossing Kpp Borisoglebsk, Russia | Storskog grensestasjon, Norway

There was an euphoric atmosphere on the border between Norway and Russia as ministers and top government officials on Friday opened a new road connection between the countries.

But amid the cheers and good words, the government representatives admitted that the next step now must be a modernization of the Storskog-Borisoglebsk border crossing points.

Currently, the border checkpoints have limited capacity and are open only from 7 am to 9 pm CET.
