The fishing agreement between Faroe Islands and Russia must come to an end

-

The fishing agreement between Faroe Islands and Russia must come to an end, says the minister of foreign affairs, Lars Løkke Rasmussen. A documentary made in cooperation by the four Nordic national televisions called “Shadow War” (which can be seen on DR) has disclosed how Russian fishing vessels carrying spying equipment docked more than 200 times in the last seven years in Faroe Islands.

  • Faroe Islands have had a special fishing agreement with Russia since 1977: cod from the Barents Sea for blue whiting from the Faroese waters.
  • Faroe Islands are economically dependent on the special fishing agreement. If the agreement is canceled, then the European Union must send economic help.
  • Russia has for the past couple of years been mapping the offshore wind farms, gas pipelines, power lines, and internet cables in the waters around Denmark, Norway, Finland, and Sweden. Why? probably to sabotage them if needed.
