A crowd of 500 Syrian refugees said to be at the Borisoglebsk border-crossing point

syrian-refugees-with-bikesThere are reports (see FlashNord.com for one of them) of quite a crowd of Syrians (real or otherwise) gathered at the Borisoglebsk (Boris-Glebe) border-crossing point near Pechenga. The Russian authorities don’t let them to the Norwegian side apparently because the refugees are on foot while the border-crossing is intended for those with a vehicle, even if it’s a bicycle – all of which have been bought out in Pechenga. Temperatures there are around freezing point, and many of those seeking entry into Norway are getting sick.
