The Russian side is in Boris Gleb in Pechengsky District in Murmansk Oblast. There is a border crossing station on the Russian side also, and both have to be passed to enter the opposite country. There is a duty-free shop in Russia between the stations.

Storskog is the only legal land border crossing between Norway and Russia. The station lies in the far northeastern part of Norway, about 16 kilometres (9.9 mi) east of the town of Kirkenes in Norway and about 40 kilometres (25 mi) north of Nikel.

In 2013, 320,000 (in 2010, 141,000) crossings were made across the border at the Storskog border station.
