In Norway, Ukrainian soldiers share a memorial place with Russian soldiers. All of them died under the flag of the Soviet Union at the end of the Second World War. The current conflict between Russia and Ukraine causes dissatisfaction. “It is completely unbearable for a Ukrainian to go to the Soviet memorial and lay flowers in a place they share with the country that shoots down Ukrainian compatriots.”
