The Chinese chose Kaliningrad: "New Silk Road" passed the ports of the Baltic states


In search of new ways of marketing its products, China opted for the westernmost point of Russia - Kaliningrad, which opens the gate to goods from China to Western Europe.


Through Kaliningrad, rail deliveries began on the so-called “new Silk Road” from the PRC to Western Europe and in the opposite direction. The goods are first delivered from Xian to Kaliningrad by rail, then from the Russian port to Mukran via the Baltic Sea, and from there already - by rail to Hamburg.

On April 8, the first sea scheduled flight to Mukran from Kaliningrad started - the cargo ship “Vega” with 50 containers of goods for consumers from Western Europe should arrive at its destination on April 9. Similar four flights, but not on a regular basis, the ship has already completed in late March - early April.

According to experts, the overland route from China through Kaliningrad and further through the Baltic to Western Europe is much shorter than the sea route from China to Europe, which took about two months.

Now delivery of goods to European customers will take only about two weeks. In addition, the Baltic countries are excluded from the goods delivery scheme - China thus prefers Russia as a more profitable and economically predictable partner.

    That's right, the wise Chinese prefer to deal with a sovereign country, rather than with vassals and occupied countries.

    Everything is correct, it should be so. At one time, the Baltic states decided to transit oil through Ventspils. Not understood. Well these are their problems.

      The Baltic states have no money to deepen the ports for receiving heavy tankers.

    The Chinese did not choose Kaliningrad, but Kenigsberg.
    The Chinese do not watch Russian television and plan for many years to come.

      Königsberg went to Russia as reparations following the results of World War II. Now this is Kaliningrad. Just as Stettin became Polish Szczecin, and Danzig became Gdansk. This is reality, the rest is the fruit of your exuberant imagination).

      To get to Kaliningrad, the Germans need to go through Silesia and Pomerania. And then fight with the great Lithuania, which also opens its mouth to ours. Unhappy Poland! Unfortunate Lithuania! I'm starting to feel sorry for them.

    The Chinese have calculated everything in advance.
    Kaliningrad is the fastest way to deliver Chinese goods to Europe.
    Russian Kaliningrad will become the leader in world shipping.
    This is only the beginning, and ahead is the global volume of traffic.

    The Americans occupied the Baltic states and they instill anti-Chinese and anti-Russian HYSTERIA there.
    And why should China provoke the hands of the Baltic states ???
    The territory of Russia is a guarantee of fast delivery and reliability.

    Here is an example of mutually beneficial and equal cooperation.

    Have you already canceled geography? Kaliningrad region is surrounded by the EU. There is no direct railway line! Everything goes from China to Rotterdam, Hamburg and Bremen. In Kaliningrad, only 25% go to the Russian Federation. Since the composition to the mainland or to Europe must go through Lithuania or Poland. Something the article is not entirely accurate. It is clear that one must raise the spirit, confidence, etc. But we who live here are not entirely sure of what is written. Forgive me.

      The EU is likely to fall apart soon. So, the environment will be in agreement.

    The Baltic countries are US hand dogs, they are not reliable, at any time at the direction of the owner they can block Chinese transit. Russia is a sovereign country!

      There is Ust-Luga, a little to the right of these "sprats", which is constantly expanding.
      On the other hand, blocking China’s transit for any Baltic mongrel will prove fatal for their statehood. They will cease to exist and no one in the West will move.

    The Balts have made their "civilizational choice". Let them sit and smoke bamboo.

    What is this economical way? There is unloading to Kaliningrad, and then loading, and a little by sea, and there is unloading and logistics!) In Europe, containers are on the road. From China do not go loose briefs phones and bulk barrels of equipment! It is a matter of economics, not politics! And the Balts themselves decide who is their friend and who is their foe.

    I just want to ask the nameless author how to bypass the tribalt if our Kaliningrad region is an enclave? Lithuania cannot be avoided by rail. Or am I missing something? Serious changes on the political map of the world?
