Putin and Lukashenko discussed issues of transit to Kaliningrad and conducting a special operation in Ukraine

Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Belarusian counterpart Alexander Lukashenko discussed issues related to transit to Kaliningrad and the conduct of a special military operation in Ukraine in a telephone conversation.

As the Kremlin’s press service reported today, on Monday, during telephone conversations, the presidents of the two countries confirmed their mutual determination to strengthen Russian-Belarusian relations, partnership and alliance.

According to the Belarusian news agency Belta, the two presidents also discussed the situation in the post-Soviet space, Russian energy supplies to Europe, and defense issues in Russia and Belarus.

The authorities of the Kaliningrad region of Russia proposed to introduce a complete ban on the movement of goods between Russia and the Baltic countries in response to restrictions imposed by Lithuania on the transit of goods to the Russian province.

It should be noted that the Russian Foreign Ministry has previously stated that Moscow will take tough measures against Lithuania and the European Union if the problem of delivering goods to Kaliningrad is not resolved, stressing that the wait has already dragged on.
