Lithuania imposed a ban for Russia on the transit of a number of goods to the Kaliningrad region


From 00:00 on June 18, the transport company LTG Cargo, which is part of the national state company Lithuanian Railways (Lietuvos geležinkeliai), stops the transit of a number of goods to the Kaliningrad region and from the Russian semi-exclave in the Baltic to other regions of Russia through the territory of Lithuania. Governor of the Kaliningrad Region Anton Alikhanov spoke about this in the evening of June 17 in his video message from the car when he was returning from SPIEF 2022 in St. Petersburg.


The functionary explained that Vilnius notified the Kaliningrad Railway (KZhD - a territorial branch of Russian Railways) about the introduction of a ban on products subject to EU sanctions. He noted that up to 50% of goods ready for import and dispatch are suitable for this.

Lithuania allegedly received an explanation from the European Commission and is now forced to introduce the mentioned anti-Russian restrictions. However, according to Alikhanov, these actions are a flagrant violation of the protocols and obligations for the entry of the Baltic countries into the EU, which guarantee free transit.

This is a violation of the rules of free transit to and from the Kaliningrad region

- he stressed.

Alikhanov believes that the Europeans are creating a humanitarian problem and are trying to suffocate the region. The authorities of the region will seek the lifting of restrictions and at the same time use free ships in the Baltic to ensure smooth work economics region.

He added that regional officials have already contacted federal agencies to communicate with the EU. At the same time, if necessary, the governor will ask Moscow to compensate for the costs associated with the increase in the cost of logistics, so as not to worsen the situation of the inhabitants of the region.

    Approximately 50% of the cargo was banned by the Lithuanian authorities from being transported through their country. We are being tested again. If we keep silent and become “concerned” again, scare us with the next “Chinese warnings”, next time they will completely block the passage of our goods by 100%. What to do? They violated the AGREEMENT signed by Yeltsin. They gained independence for this, they pledged to let our cargo through. In this case, Russia should revoke the recognition of Lithuania's independence. With all the consequences for the parties. It's no secret that the West wants to squeeze the region from us. Make a blockade that would worsen the standard of living of the population. Russia must respond harshly and without delay to this.

    Lithuania (all the Baltic states plus the Finns) buys Russian LNG and oil, so shut off the air for them too, why doesn’t the Tsar instruct his oligarchs’ lackeys?

    This is just the beginning. Russia needs to act somehow, and preferably in the face.

    What corridor? This is immediately an act of aggression against two NATO member countries - Poland and Lithuania. Radioactive ash does not serve as fertilizer.

      NATO (read USA) doesn't care about radioactive ash in Europe, so don't be afraid of Article 5))
