Norwegians blocked the sale of the engine plant to Russia

The Norwegian authorities, according to Der Spiegel, have stopped the sale of the Bergen Engines ship engine plant to the Russian holding Transmash for reasons of national security.

This decision by the Norwegian Ministry of Justice and Security became known on Tuesday 9 March. The Norwegian plant is also engaged in the maintenance of the propulsion systems of the ships of the country's navy. One of these ships, according to media reports, is the Marjata, which is at the disposal of the Norwegian special services. According to the German newspaper, Marjata is monitoring the movement of the Russian navy in the Barents Sea.

Representatives of the Norwegian government department noted that the deal to sell Bergen Engines to Transmashholding could violate the country's national security principles, and therefore had to be blocked until the necessary data was obtained.

The sale of the enterprise was halted due to Oslo fears about the great influence of Moscow on the Russian "Transmash", which is famous for its railway industry, since the holding sells most of its products to the Russian state railways.

    That's all the attempts of the "free" capitalist market that the liberals sang to us about during the collapse of the USSR. Blatantly deceived! Earlier, Opel was banned from selling to Russia. It is only in Russia that shares of strategic enterprises are sold to foreigners. And in the West you are naughty!

    ... Brazenly deceived!, ...

    It's strange. After perestroika ... fifteen times, similar facts are found on the news feeds every year. Since that time, the amount "blocked", or rather taken away, has probably exceeded thousands of cases and hundreds of billions of dollars. But our "businessmen" from the state or the sovereign's people in "business" go into this muddy water like rats following the magic flute of Niels - the rat-catcher. An endless stream. And there is no end in sight ...
    It seems that the belief that if they give way to the West a little more and serve his fierce malice a little more and satisfy his hunger in devouring Russia ... then Nils (the West) will personally forgive them everything - .... Like Shevardnadze. And maybe even he will take under protection like Kozyrev or Gorbachev. This Faith of theirs seems to be INSEMBLE.
    And they hope that they personally and their children will even be given the opportunity to take advantage of the loot and possibly even on the Cote d'Azur.

    Why buy a Norwegian plant? But what about import substitution?
