Norway’s only municipality with a border to Russia is taking nickel giant Norilsk Nickel to court over pollution charges.

      “If nothing else can stop the acid clouds of sulphur dioxide, we’ll take the company to court,” BarentsObserver cites Sør-Varanger Mayor Cecilie Hansen as saying.

      Sør-Varanger municipality is said to have the highest concentrations of sulphur dioxide (SO2) in all of Norway.

      Norilsk-Nickel operates smelters in Nikel and Monchegorsk as well as the nickel mines in Zapolyarny on Russia's Kola Peninsula.
