Fortsatt grublet han over møtet med Oddvar, og ambassadøren bestemte seg for å skrive en rapport, som en del av en Diplomatic Cable til hovedkontoret i Addis. Han tok opp interntelefonen sin og tilkalte Ms. Tsega. Et minutt senere, banket det på døren hans, som stod åpen.
“Ambassador” sa hun. “Ms. Tsega, take a diplomatic cable,” sa han.

RUSSIA:IMPACT ON NORWEGIAN ECONOMY/CONCLUSION/POSITION
THE ACTIVITIES OF RUSSIA IS PLAYING HAVOC WITH THE NORWEGIAN ECONOMY. NORWEGIAN SANCTIONS ON RUSSIA, ARE NOT HAVING THE INTENDED IMPACT. SOME EVIDENCE SUGGEST PARTICULAR SECTORS IN NORWAY WERE AFFECTED DISPROPORTIONATELY. EXPORTS OF SEAFOOD IS NEGATIVELY IMPACTED. AT THE INCEPTION OF THE SANCTIONS, NORWEGIAN EXPORTS ACTUALLY ROSE, AS THERE WAS A BLACK MARKET VIA THIRD COUNTRIES. ONE YEAR ON, THIS HAS NOW BEEN REVERSED.
A LOW BUDGET NORWEGIAN CARRIER IS REFUSED TO FLY THROUGH RUSSIAN AIRSPACE. ON ITS ROUTE TO THAILAND, IT HAS TO USE 50 EXTRA MINUTES AT A COST OF 100 MILLION NORWEGIAN KRONER ALONE THE YEAR BEFORE.
THE SECURITY SITUATION IS ACUTE IN THE NORTHERN PART OF NORWAY. AS IT HAS DONE IN UKRAINE WITH THE ANNEXATION OF THE CRIMEA, THE RUSSIANS WERE NOW THREATENING SOME BORDER REGIONS BETWEEN NORWAY AND RUSSIA.
THE PROBLEM IS MADE WORSE AS NORWAY HAS BEEN LEFT ON HER OWN TO MANAGE HER BORDER WITH RUSSIA, SINCE POLAND IS NOW A MEMBER OF NATO.
THE NEW RUSSIAN TSAR PURIN THE LAST, HAS RECENTLY SENT TROOPS TO GRENSE JAKOBSELV. GRENSE JAKOBSELV IS A SMALL VILLAGE LOCATED AT THE EDGE OF THE BARENTS SEA. THE RIVER IN THIS VILLAGE FORMS THE NORWEGIAN BORDER WITH RUSSIA.
