As of today, June 18, Lithuanian railroad stopped transit of a number of Russian goods to Kaliningrad. It's about 50% of cargoes, which fell under the EU sanctions. This was announced by the Governor of the Kaliningrad region Anton Alihanov.
According to Mr. Alikhanov, the carrier communicated the relevant information one day before the ban came into force. He specified that about 50 percent of all cargo delivered from the regions of Russia fell under the ban of the European Union.
According to the Russian official, the Ust-Luga-Baltiysk ferry line will now require additional ships to deliver goods.
In addition, Alikhanov accused Lithuania of violating the rules of its accession to the European Union.
