Norway last week changed their asylum rules so refugees who had previously resided in safe-state Russia would be sent back, but they aren’t wanted there either — leaving a large number of migrants stuck at the frozen Russia Norway Border crossing with nowhere to go. It is not clear exactly how many asylum seekers Norway has attempted to send back to Russia so far, but the decision to declare Russia a safe country and begin the process of turn-backs has strained tensions. Those asylum seekers effected by the change are now being batted back and forth between the two nations, alternately being arrested by police on each side and turned around. Because Norway is only sending migrants who have already been through Russia and have Russian residency permits, the government insists they are entirely within their rights to do so. A representative for the state justice ministry said: “It is our opinion that Russia is obligated to take back those people whom we are sending back to Russia”, reports TheLocal.no.
