Strains in bilateral relations

Both the environmentally devastating emissions from the Norilsk Nickel plant outside Nikel in the Murmansk Oblast[4] and the territorial dispute over the Barents Sea have for decades been unresolved issues in Norway–Soviet, then Norway–Russia relations. On 27 April 2010 Norway and Russia officially resolved the territorial dispute in the Barents Sea.[5]
