According to Norwegian media, Russian military intelligence (GRU) is actively interested in advanced technical equipment, including underwater equipment, and is trying to buy it from Norwegian companies.

For several years, the GRU has been buying or trying to acquire equipment that the PST believes could be used in the Russian defense industry, according to the head of the Norwegian Security Police Service (PST).

Three persons acting under diplomatic cover, but in fact working for the GRU, were seen buying such equipment..

The interests of the GRU have recently shifted to underwater technologies, which indicates a high priority of this topic for Russian intelligence. The Norwegian authorities are investigating these cases.
