Work on lifting the ban on the transit of goods to Kaliningrad is underway and can lead to the desired results. This was announced by the governor of the region Anton Alikhanov, RIA Novosti reports.
“Based on the information that we receive through various channels, from various sources, we understand that work is underway and there is a good chance that it will be completed the way the region needs and the way our country needs,” — he said.
The governor believes that the European Union should adopt a new package of sanctions with exceptions on Kaliningrad or add them to existing restrictions.
According to him, the EU may announce changes to transit on July 10, when it announces new sanctions. “If those announced deadlines, which were mentioned before July 10, are not met, we will propose to the political leadership to take retaliatory measures,” — he emphasized.
On June 18, Lithuanian Railways banned the transport of goods to and from the Kaliningrad region that fell under EU sanctions. Among them, for example, technological installations for the liquefaction of natural gas, iron and steel products, products for use in the aviation or space industry, cigars, perfumes, porcelain dishes, household appliances worth more than €750.
The Kremlin called the decision of the Lithuanian authorities illegal. Press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov urged “hope for the best, but prepare for the worst” in resolving this conflict. Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev said Moscow was working on a response to “hostile actions.”
