Moscow threatened to break the blockade of Kaliningrad if it was established

In Poland and the Baltic countries, Russophobes continue to talk about the advisability of organizing a complete blockade of the Kaliningrad region of Russia. They want to interrupt the existing land (road and rail) communication between the Russian semi-exclave and the main territory of the Russian Federation. Moscow once again drew attention to this and threatened to break the blockade of Kaliningrad if it was established by Western "partners".

On April 6, Vladimir Dzhabarov, First Deputy Chairman of the Committee of the Federation Council of the Russian Federation on International Affairs, during a video interview, which took place in the press center of Parliamentary Newspaper, said that Russia has enough forces and means to put an end to such manifestations. At the same time, the senator believes that Western countries are playing a certain game and testing the waters by sending threats to the Russian region.

If there is a blockade, as they say, then let me remind you that the Soviet Union was good at opening blockades, and Russia has a lot of experience here. If they want to bring us to such a situation, then for the sake of saving our people living in the Kaliningrad region, we will be able to open this blockade

- said a member of the upper house of the Russian parliament.

Moreover, the parliamentarian hopes that the Western countries "have enough brains" not to take such an openly unfriendly and dangerous step.

Note that this is not the first remark from Moscow, made Western partners. One gets the feeling that Russophobes are simply testing Russia's patience with their incessant provocations.

It should be added that during the Great Patriotic War, the Nazis of the Third Reich organized the blockade of Leningrad, which lasted 872 days. The city survived, and its Soviet defenders reached Berlin.

    Thank God: it came to clerks to write about partners in quotation marks: "partners." Now it remains to call these "partners" - enemies. Things should be called by their proper names!

    The bastards are probing, poking a stick into the den with a bear, blinded by Russophobia. But I think things will not go further than talks: they know that in this case there will be no expressions of concern, asymmetric measures and other demagogy. Russia has a successful experience of deblocking, Moscow will not stop!

    I think that after the completion of the operation in Ukraine, few people will have questions of this kind, such as a blockade and so on ... soon, very soon everything will end in Ukraine and then a lot will change ...

    And again, only words, words, warnings and even threats.
    Where are things?
    I live in Kaliningrad and constantly read that from the Lithuanian side there has been a border blockade at the Chernyshevskoye-Kybartai automobile checkpoint for a long time, the queue stretched to Nesterov, for about 11 kilometers. Trucks loaded with goods stand in two rows. Truckers say that they have been standing for 5 days or more. This has never happened. From the Lithuanian side, Lithuanian border guards delay the inspection of each car with a specialist. And trucks carry perishable food and vegetables to Kaliningrad.
    I don’t know about rail transportation of goods to Kaliningrad. There is almost no information about this. I only know that railway trains come to our exclave on ferries from Ust-Luga. And there are only two ferries. They promise to launch a third one at the end of this year. And the specialists talk about the need for 10-12 ferries.
    As for passenger traffic from Kaliningrad with big Russia, everything is not simple either. I myself, like most Kaliningraders, if I need to visit Russian cities, use only air transport, tickets for which, after the sanctions, have risen in price by one and a half, and in some directions by 2 times. Those who cannot stand the flight for health reasons are forced to travel to greater Russia by rail. But even here it was not so simple. It is necessary to buy an electronic ticket at least three days in advance, which will be checked by the Lithuanian authorities and will issue (or not issue) a special permit to travel through their territory. And a passport is required. In addition, at the Lithuanian border, a long check of all documents.
    Well, this is all from the words of those who traveled by train. They talk spitting.
    Well, so who? And when will a million inhabitants of the Kaliningrad exclave intercede for us and simplify our life and trips to greater Russia?
    So far, only our governor Alikhanov reassures us that nothing threatens us, And no one here is afraid of any threats, but they just complain that life in the city is getting more expensive. I myself compared prices in Kaliningrad, in St. Petersburg and in Moscow. Some products, especially vegetables and fruits, are one and a half times and even twice as expensive for us. Others by 10-20 percent. And not only products, but also manufactured goods. And that's why. that delivery here, although not blocked, is slowing down.
