“It is clear that Lithuania must and will apply EU sanctions.

Lithuania must and will maintain control over the goods that it passes through its territory, and there can be no question of any “corridors”, as well as concessions to Russia in response to the Kremlin’s threats,” the President of Lithuania said.

He called on the country's government to "immediately begin consultations with the European Commission" so that the imposed sanctions "do not harm either the interests of Lithuania or international agreements."

“Only by joint efforts will we achieve sanctions that will harm the aggressor country,” Nauseda concluded.

At the same time, MEP Petras Auštrevičius said that Russia is “winning so far” in the situation around Lithuania's decision to restrict transit to the Kaliningrad region.

According to him, “one of the EU member states” demanded a review of the regulation on the implementation of sanctions.

The governor of the Kaliningrad region, Anton Alikhanov, said that the response to Lithuania's restriction of transit to the Kaliningrad region can be varied, and the consequences for the economies of the Baltic countries are significant.
