Lithuania officially refused to provide Russia with "green corridors" to the Kaliningrad region

Lithuania refused to provide Russia with "green corridors" to the Kaliningrad region.

Despite the fact that European countries called for the transit of Russian cargo to the Kaliningrad region, stating that it was only about transit "from Russia to Russia", the Lithuanian authorities officially announced that the country does not intend to provide an opportunity for transit of Russian goods through its territory. This was stated by Advisor to the President of Lithuania.

“Therefore, when someone speaks about green corridors in public space, we emphasize: there can be no thought that Lithuania does not control what is happening on its territory”, - Advisor to the President of Lithuania Asta Skaisgirite.

Thus, Lithuania decided to go for further escalation with Russia. This will likely lead to the fact that the Russian side will take serious measures against Vilnius, since in fact the Lithuanian authorities are conducting an open blockade of the Kaliningrad region, using the sanctions imposed by Western countries against Russia only as an argument, but at the same time pursuing their own goals.

Experts do not rule out that the EU may increase pressure on Lithuania, leaving without a number of subsidies, however, in the near future, unblocking the transit of Russian cargo to the Kaliningrad region should not be expected.
