The Federation Council threatened to solve the issue of the blockade of Kaliningrad "by any means"

Lithuania threatened not to allow a number of goods to pass through its territory to the Kaliningrad region, thus actually initiating a blockade of the Russian semi-exclave. The illegal initiative of Vilnius provoked a predictable reaction from Moscow.

In particular, Andrei Klimov, a member of the Federation Council, head of the commission for the protection of state sovereignty, expressed his attitude to what is happening.

The EU, if it does not immediately correct the impudent trick of Vilnius, will itself disavow for us the legitimacy of all documents on Lithuania's membership in the European Union and will untie its hands to solve the created problem of Kaliningrad transit by any means we choose

– said the senator in his telegram channel.

Klimov also believes that such actions of the Lithuanian authorities “set up” NATO, since Lithuania, which is a member of the alliance, unilaterally declares a blockade of Russian territory, to which the Kremlin can respond with very harsh measures.

Earlier, the ex-deputy head of the defense department of Poland, Romuald Sheremetiev, spoke about the importance of "demilitarization" of the Kaliningrad region. He believes that after Sweden and Finland join the western bloc, this Russian region will become an obstacle to NATO dominance in the east of Europe.

    maybe for a start to impose sanctions on the Balts-Finns on the supply of Russian LNG and oil?

    A land corridor through Lithuania. And at the same time we will cut off the entire Baltic from the EU. Will they start a war over the Baltics? Do not make me laugh..

    How. It's the hucksters who will be left without profits. There is no legislation in Russia to limit ties with unfriendly states. In the USA there is, but not in the Russian Federation! Those. hucksters do not care about the problems of the state.
    Nothing can be done by military means. The armed forces of the Russian Federation are fighting (with varying success for another village in Ukraine). Busy.
    It is necessary to pull SP-3 to Kaliningrad, build a nuclear power plant, and develop a ferry service. Build a chem. industry on gas and sell goods (not raw materials).
    No, well, without the "concern" of the Russian Foreign Ministry, too.

      It is necessary to pull the SP-3 to Kaliningrad.

      Why, if there is "Marshal Vasilevsky", standing behind a bulk pier in full view of the entire coast?

      Moscow, January 27 - IA Neftegaz.RU. Gazprom returned FSRU Marshal Vasilevsky to the shores of Kaliningrad for the first time in 2 years.
      The floating regasification unit (FSRU) is designed to provide autonomous gas supply to the region in the event of a cessation of fuel supplies through Lithuania.
      Most likely, against the background of the escalation of the conflict over the situation with Ukraine, the company returned FSRU to the region in order to test the operation of local gas storage facilities (UGS) with LNG injection into them.
      Gas from Russia enters the Kaliningrad region through Belarus and Lithuania via the main gas pipeline (MGP) Minsk - Vilnius - Kaunas - Kaliningrad with a throughput capacity of 2,5 billion m3/year.
      The energy security of the Kaliningrad exclave became a key issue when, in March 2017, NATO prepared a secret report recommending that the Baltics withdraw from the BRELL energy system (Belarus, Russia, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania), which has been operating since the days of socialism.
      Against the backdrop of deteriorating gas transportation relations with the Baltics, the Russian authorities decided to build a gas supply system for the Kaliningrad region through autonomous operation on LNG in order to ensure the energy security of the exclave.
      FSRU arrived at the fixed berth in the Kaliningrad region in December 2018.
      In January 2019, the project was put into operation.
      Project structure:
      marine terminal for receiving LNG and FSRU Marshal Vasilevsky;
      Kaliningradskoye UGSF, commissioned in 2013

      build a nuclear power plant

      The nuclear power plant is redundant for the region, and there is no one to sell the excess electricity.
      They started to build, but then switched to gas, having built several thermal power plants.

      develop a ferry service

      Perhaps someone is not in the know, but there are two ports in Kaliningrad, "trade" and "fish".
      With all the preserved infrastructure from the berths to the entire port economy.
      We can accept any cargo from the "mainland", from bulk to bulk.
      The unfortunate ferry terminal in Baltiysk (against their background) looks rather pathetic. smile

      PS The photo is only of the trading port, the "fish" one is no less, but for some reason everyone is obsessed with ferries.
      Will we carry cement by ferry?

    The Russian Federation cannot influence the decision of the EU on the blockade of the Kaliningrad province of the Russian Federation, and the threats have not been active for a long time - everyone understands that this is an empty shaking of the air and a sign of powerlessness.
    It’s good that the blockade of goods is not complete and it didn’t come to the blockade of the sea route through the Gulf of Finland.
    They were forced to sell Alaska, and if they introduce a complete blockade, they will probably sell the Kalingrad province for joint use as the three South Kuril Islands.

    We must not chew snot, but quickly close the issue with Ukraine. Then the desire to "bull" others will disappear.

    Does Lithuania want forced transit? So you need to give it to these creatures!
