Norway is rebuilding a dilapidated reindeer fence along its border with Russia in the Arctic to stop them from wandering into the neighboring country — costly strolls for which Oslo has to compensate Moscow over loss of grassland.
The reindeer barrier along the Norway-Russia border spans 150 kilometers and dates back to 1954.
The work is a challenge, however, as the workers have to stay on the Norwegian side of the border "at all times" during construction. If a worker crossed into Russian territory, without a Russian visa, that would amount to illegal entry.
Russia has sent two compensation claims, the Norwegian Agriculture Agency said.（AP）
