Norway asks Moscow to explain deputy PM's island visit despite sanctions

OSLO (Reuters) - Norway said on Sunday it has sought an explanation from Moscow for a visit to a Norwegian island by Russia's deputy prime minister, who is banned from Norway in keeping with international sanctions against him over Ukraine.

Dmitry Rogozin is among a group of Russians who had sanctions imposed on them by the European Union and the United States after Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine last year. Norway also adopted the sanctions, although it is not an EU member.
