      Russian Ownership

      by TomFoolery Online Now Jan 30, 2006 at 8:08 AM

      I've just been reading about Svalbard and was fascinated to learn there is a Russian Community there.

      Can anyone explain more - how have the Russians got permission to firstly live, and secondly mine coal there? Are they subject to Norwegian taxation? Must make for an interesting juxtaposition between the wealthy western Norwegian culture and the developing Eastern Russian culture.
