Lithuanian restrictions on Russian Kaliningrad will affect land transport

The authorities of the Kaliningrad region of Russia have indicated that restrictions imposed by Lithuania on the transit of goods from the rest of Russia to Kaliningrad will include road transport by trucks.

Kaliningrad authorities noted that “restrictions on the transit of goods also apply to road transport passing through Lithuania, and these goods can currently only be transported by sea.”

Kaliningrad is a Russian province surrounded by Poland, Lithuania and the Baltic Sea.

Earlier, Lithuanian Railways notified the Kaliningrad Railway of the termination of the transit of a number of Russian goods subject to EU sanctions.

For his part, Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev said that Moscow’s response to the transport blockade of the Russian Kaliningrad region will directly affect the people of Lithuania, and that Russia will respond to these measures accordingly.
