The head of the Russian Security Council arrived in Kaliningrad and promised a quick response to Lithuania's actions

Since June 18, Lithuania has introduced ban for Russia for the transit of a number of goods to the Kaliningrad region, stipulating this by the restrictions of the European Union. Moscow represented by high-ranking functionaries immediately reacted to what is happening. However, the words had no effect on Vilnius, but only made laugh. Therefore, on June 21, the head of the Security Council of the Russian Federation, Nikolai Patrushev, arrived in Kaliningrad, who promised a quick and tangible response from the Russians to the unfriendly actions of the Lithuanian side.

It should be noted that almost half of the goods fell under the European ban. This means the actual installation of a partial transport blockade. The sanctions list included building materials, metal structures and other goods that can no longer be transported to the Kaliningrad region or exported from the Russian semi-exclave in transit through Lithuania.

Patrushev, who is in Kaliningrad on a working visit, discussing with officials the issue of transport accessibility of the region, said that the reciprocal actions of the Russian Federation would have a serious negative impact on the inhabitants of Lithuania. He noted that Vilnius violated its international obligations related to the country's accession to the EU and NATO. At the same time, he drew attention to the fact that the alliance is increasing its military and intelligence presence near the Russian border, and the West as a whole is providing an unprecedented political, information and economic pressure on Russia.

In addition, according to the press secretary of the Security Council apparatus Yevgeny Anoshin, at the mentioned meeting the issues of ensuring the uninterrupted functioning of the energy system of the region and the maintenance of the submarine fiber-optic communication line that connects the region with other subjects of the Russian Federation were discussed. The topic of providing the population of the border regions of the Kaliningrad region with mobile communications and stable Russian radio broadcasting was also touched upon.

It should be added that EU Ambassador Markus Ederer was summoned to the Russian Foreign Ministry. The reason is the same - the decision of the Lithuanian authorities to restrict the transit of goods to the Kaliningrad region due to EU sanctions against Russia.

    Well, they called the ambassador and what's the point? Just 56 kilometers and such a problem? Why did Patrushev have to be pulled? They would give a command from the Kremlin and the whole thing would not last long. What, maybe the gunpowder is damp or a couple more - three generals should cut off their shoulder straps?

    Apparently, Russia has no methods yet against Kostya Saprykin. The best method is to nullify the supply of energy carriers. But it will be a lot of money lost. Nobody will go for it. We don't live in the USSR.

      Lithuania will stop deliveries of electricity from Russia from May 22. This was announced by the company Litgrid, which is engaged in the country's electricity supply.
      Taking into account the fact that we have few ferries, and food and other goods not subject to sanctions must be transported, it is unlikely that we have leverage (except for force) of pressure on Lithuania.
      True, in this case, the EU allowed this step. It remains only to radically act against the EU. But fundamentally, this is only the supply of gas, oil ...

    Problem. Here, in four months, the NWO cannot move the front line from Donetsk even a kilometer! Villages in the steppe "take" for months. The Black Sea Fleet is suppressed (except for the commander of the Black Sea Fleet), the Aerospace Forces operate with caution and at a great distance from the territory of Ukraine. Weapons are brought from the West day and night. Nobody interferes!
    And you're talking about 56 km. NATO territory.
    They will wash themselves once again, in the first, or something.

      Well, maybe you will go to the front line and show HOW you need to take villages in the steppe, heroin father?

    I do my job well. By the highest qualification.
    Steppe villages should be "taken" under the command of generals (now they have no other objects). Every general gets a paycheck for five people like me. And after that I have to go to the trench?

    The head of the Russian Security Council arrived in Kaliningrad and promised a quick response to Lithuania's actions

    - Well, what is there ... here ... here you can do - absolutely - nothing!
    Damn, how much I personally have already written (and there were minuses - just darkness) about the fact that brainless Gazprom was not even smart enough to start a "gas branch" to Kaliningrad from SP-2 during construction!
    - Well, who interfered with something ??? - What - there was no money; or just brains!!!
    - Kaliningrad would now build hubs, UGS facilities of huge capacities; would fill them with gas and ... and ... and even Germany would come to him to "beg for gas" for money !!! - Yes, and the same Lithuania would beg for gas from him !!! - Now what???
    - Well, Patrushev arrived, and then what??
    - And now everything is postponed until the end of the WSO! - And no more!
    And suddenly there is also a "truce" and again the "Minsk agreements"! - Oh, it's better not to think about it. About these "Minsk agreements"! - Just fear and trembling from all this takes!

      Irina, one Khasavyurt was not enough - again they got the same rake in the forehead ... I already told you about my nephew - I have no right to speak in detail here. But I know what the guys in the trenches think... Get "Moscow"... Get a tugboat... And the "cherry" on the cake is the answer for "50 generals"... Get three (THREE!!!) hits on towers ... Carefully planned and brilliantly carried out ... Lightning-fast response ... What were we waiting for - "in decision-making centers" ..?. Another barn will be destroyed in response. Yes? these empty breeches in the "GosDu ... e" (p) got alarmed - damn it, what if they pull up something more powerful and long-range? And a "little northern animal" will fly to Rublyovka? white gloves decided to take off ... or rather, consider the possibility of taking off ...
      Irin, I have a different social circle - I can’t, I don’t have the right to speak in detail. Honestly.
      Now the Chukhons have imagined themselves to be "godfather to the king" ... But what - everyone can do it, but are we red-haired? The question is - what ... is Patrushev doing there? Concerned you are our ...
      This city was stormed by my uncle - my father's brother ... He was wounded ... seriously ... Then he served in the commandant's office ... He remained in the city on demobilization ... My relatives still live there, well, who stayed .. I was there many times visiting, starting from 64 ... I climbed the fortress with my brothers, on which right now the "cuttlefish" is standing ... They took me there and left them, boobies ... I got out of these casemates myself ... On they caught up with me on the bridge over the Pregol - "Don't say anything, otherwise voo!" ... I was silent ... But the uncle poured them all the same - all three ... As I found out - who knows ...
      What am I all about. In September 85, we - me, my wife and son, my parents - went to visit my uncle (they then lived on Kalinina Square, opposite the railway station)
      Somewhere in front of Vilnius or immediately after, I don’t remember, on the railway slope, local "monkeys" frolicked ... They yelled something, made faces ... The car was a compartment, I stood in the vestibule, smoked ... And a window was open in the corridor - from it, apparently, someone shouted back to them. One of them picks up a stone and throws it... He didn't hit the window, there was a thud on the skin... This is 1985, the Lithuanian SSR...

    Oh, and there will be terrible threats, but only in words. Acting then showing strength is scary.

    At RBC, an uncle from Kaliningrad said clearly - container transportation is the cheapest type of delivery of goods to Kaliningrad. But someone is stubbornly lobbying for ferry deliveries. As always, corruption wins!
