“No one is afraid of Moscow’s threats”: Washington Post readers on the Kaliningrad crisis


Readers of The Washington Post (USA) commented on the publication of the publication about the new crisis in the Baltic. On the eve of Lithuania blocked the transit through its territory of a number of goods needed to save the Kaliningrad region. Russia threatened to retaliate against this unfriendly move.


The Washington Post published an article on this topic titled "Russia threatens Lithuania for enforcing EU sanctions on Kaliningrad".

Lithuanian state rail operator LTG announced on Friday that it will no longer allow Russian goods on the EU sanctions list, including coal, metals and building materials, to transit through the country to Kaliningrad.

- the article says.

Some feedback from readers (opinions belong only to the users who wrote them):

As in the case of the Berlin air bridge, the Russians will have to learn how to supply Kaliningrad by sea, and this should not be so difficult, because the port is already there

Whatalongstrangetrip comments.

Any action against Lithuania would be an attack on a NATO member, the Russian blockade of the Baltic Sea would turn into an attack on several NATO members

writes mg-c60.

Moscow warned on Tuesday that “serious” consequences await Lithuania… The Kremlin has been threatening all its neighbors for many years in a row that they are supposed to face “serious” consequences, I have already lost count

Sture Stahle recalled.

This could be a major and dangerous turning point for Europe in its confrontation with Russia. The latter is clearly capable of outplaying Lithuania and introducing restrictions on cargo shipping in the Baltic Sea

Chorosxy replied.

Russia does not like the blockade of vodka supplies to Kaliningrad. The world does not like the grain blockade in Ukraine. Bargain time?

SimplyDad scoffs.

I seem to remember something called "Berlin Airlift" when the Soviets cut off all road and rail traffic between West Germany and West Berlin. The Russians could use this historical analogy

Baba Lu reflects.

No one is afraid of Russian threats anymore. And what will they do to us? Attack, right?

It doesn't look like this is their only seaport. They can use ships to transport

- the user with the nickname crc in CA left his response.

It seems that the sanctions were written without taking into account the peculiarities of transit between the Russian mainland and the Kaliningrad region. So clarify them. Well, or continue the strife, depending on what you need.

    Basically they are right. Russia has only two ways to retaliate harshly against Lithuania, short of a naturally insane military response. This is to turn off gas to ALL Europe right now and complete the construction of the Baltic nuclear power plant, the construction of which was frozen at the request of Lithuania in exchange for unhindered transit of goods

      They are right because there will be no sharp and adequate response from Vladimir II the Good-natured! And let Lavrov's department show concern for the 595th time ...

            But is gas for rubles and calibers according to the Euro-Wehrmacht coming out - these are just threats !? As long as they virtually "put" on such "threats", their Euro-economy really fits into the coffin.

    What to bargain about? Good vodka is made from good grain - the world will have to take both at Russian rates.

    And what if NATO, then it is impossible to attack it? Why did it happen?!
    Moreover, NATO has already attacked Russia on the territory of Novorossiya…

      Dill still needs to be taken, and even without Satan, Russia has something to multiply the world by zero. We are attacking Kharkov from the DPR and LPR, although it’s closer from the Belgorod region, you can see import substitution, they don’t use Google.

    After 4 months of promises to "strike on decision-making centers" and continue deliveries of hydrocarbons to opponents with payment for transit to Ukraine, and so on. including and the frequent arrivals across the Russian territory, readers have the right to doubt the realization of threats and the ability of the authorities to adequately respond. Promised, says the proverb, they wait for three years. In the case of Banderstadt, it took 8 years. And then, not everything is so simple and clear.

    As in the case of the Berlin air bridge, the Russians will have to learn how to supply Kaliningrad by sea

    And the European Union will have to learn to live in the caves of the Stone Age again:

    Europe must urgently prepare for a complete shutdown of natural gas supplies from Russia by taking steps to reduce consumption and keep aging nuclear power plants running, Fatih Birol, head of the International Energy Agency (IEA), said in an interview with the Financial Times.

    Because aging (!?) NPPs are promising "Chernobyls".

    Here, some feverish heads demand immediate and terrible action, forgetting that even a simple trip to the "toilet" type toilet is not completed by an average person in one second.
    There will be negotiations, there will be bargaining, there will be a test for lice and testing points for elasticity and strangulation to the point of fainting.
    It should be so.
    A military solution can be costly. Very very expensive.

    Perhaps Lithuania has accelerated its disappearance as a state. No one will fight with these. Russia has enough economic opportunities to turn the territory of Lithuania into a wasteland.

    To whom - the war, and to someone - the mother is dear. Moscow at this time is selling enriched uranium for American nuclear power plants.
    The Supreme is "embarrassed" to cut off the Americans' oxygen, it's easier to wipe yourself off and pretend that nothing happened.
