Pilots once again warned about the problems with GPS in the North of Norway
MOSCOW, January 10. /TASS/. Norwegian aviation administration has issued a warning to pilots about problems with the GPS navigation in the North of Norway, near the city of Kirkenes. This was reported in Thursday’s edition of Barents Observer.
The warning indicates it will last until the end of the month. According to the Finnish TV channel MTV3, the warning also extends to several dozen kilometres of territory of Finland.
At the end of last year, the Ministry of defense of Norway made a statement that Russia interfered in the work of GPS during NATO exercise Trident Juncture. The Norwegian Ministry said that “in the period between 16 October and 7 November, there was a jamming signal [GPS]” and that “these are Russian forces on the Kola Peninsula”. Then the foreign Ministry of Finland has also published the claim that a violation signal comes from the territory of the Russian Federation. While Norway and Finland had not provided evidence that the violation was from the Russian Federation.
In turn, the press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov said that the Kremlin was unaware of the problems in the GPS navigation during the exercise NATO and that Russia may have some relevance to these failures.
