Not everyone, but yes, they do. Especially in Sachsen, so on A4, but not only there.

The only land border crossing between Norway and Russia, called Storskog / Boris Gleb. It lies on the E105, between Kirkenes and Murmansk, north of the Arctic Circle. In 2001, total number of passengers was 119,610 (in the whole year - 328 a day).

The Norwegian side (Storskog):




The Russian side (Boris Gleb):




And many more photos here and here.

^ I don't think this sign is considered "military personnel and material" though.

Why do the Norwegians need visas for Russia anyway? It's not like they all want to emigrate.

It's probably because Russians need visa to enter Norway so the same applies vice-versa. It's normal and it works almost everywhere this way.

Still, I think Russian should be included, especially by such an important prohibition, and we know that many Russians don't speak any of those languages, some probably can't even read it. Better Russian than German. Ok, the camera is drawn, but some may think you aren't allowed to take photos of anything there.

The sign is written in English, German and Finnish (?) as well as Norwegian, so leaving out Russian seems like a bizarre oversight.
