NORSKA BORDER CYKEL

 

The scene of refugees crossing the border between Russia and Norway has become familiar, but the numbers are growing every day, and the strange thing is that all of them come riding bicycles!

The number of refugees riding bicycles who come to Norway was about two per week, but their numbers have increased rapidly until it reached 378 refugees in the past week alone.

The reason is that there is a “Loophole” in the Norwegian-Russian border agreement, which does not allows the crossing of people on foot, but they can cross riding a vehicle with wheels, without specifying the type of vehicle or the number of wheels, therefore it is possible to cross the border on a bicycle without being stopped by anyone.

In addition to the increased of number of refugees coming to Norway, the bicycle prices sky rocketed to astronomical levels in the Russian villages and cities near the Norwegian-Russian border.

Once the refugees crosses the border, they apply for asylum to the Norwegian authorities and throw the bikes, because it is no longer needed.

This has led to a large gathering of bicycles to form mountains of metal and wheels, with a value of about 2 million kronor, as estimated by the Norwegian authorities.

Unfortunately, all these bikes will be sold in the form of scrap to a Swedish company, because these bikes do not meet the Norwegian specifications, because most of them are missing brakes or reflectors. At the same time, they can not be returned to Russia because they will be used again and sold at high prices, taking advantage of the refugees.
